Experienced striker Padraig Amond joined the Grecians in August on loan from fellow League Two side Newport County and wears the number 11 shirt for City.
The Irishman began his career with Shamrock Rovers and also featured for Kildare and Sligo Rovers in his homeland before a move to Pacos de Ferreira in Portugal, where he spent two years. His big break in England came at Accrington Stanley where he was initially on loan, but he went on to sign permanently, making almost 80 appearances and scoring 16 times.
'Podge' as he is affectionately known has played in the EFL ever since, having prolific spells with Morecambe, Grimsby Town and Hartlepool United before he joined Newport County in 2017. He has made well over 150 appearances for the Welsh side at time of writing before his loan switch to SJP.
