Matt Jay, a product of Exeter City Academy, made 23 appearance last season scoring eight goals.

Matt made his first team debut in the Football League Trophy over Wycombe Wanderers in 2013 at the age of 17.

The striker, known for his great technical ability and quick feet, has had two successful loan spells at Hayes & Yeading and Truro City. His first goal for City came in the EFL Trophy in August 2016 as he fired home a first-time shot against Oxford United at the Kassam Stadium.

Matt continued his development as he netted his first league goal against Cambridge United in the 2017/18 season, and he managed to find the net four times in the 2018/19 campaign - three of which were contenders for goal of the season.

MJ's standout season came last time out as he took home all the awards after his 20 goal haul. He was awarded a place in two separate League Two Team of the Years, as well as winning Player of the Year and Player's Player of the Year in the club's awards. 

He has been handed the captaincy by Matt Taylor for the 2021/22 season.
