New defender Troy Brown has said that Exeter’s playing philosophy was a huge draw for him when he made the decision to sign on at St James’ Park this summer.

Having come to us from Cheltenham Town where he has faced off against us a number of times in previous seasons, 24 year old Brown told the Official Site that even though he had 170 senior appearances to his name in his career so far, he was coming to us looking to develop further especially as he feels Exeter’s style of play will get more from him.

‘It`s great to finally get it done. We`ve been talking for quite a while now and it`s good to finally be here. Exeter City has got a great philosophy – everyone knows they play good football. It`s a well-supported club and it`s a lovely part of the world to live in. When you play against them, you never have an easy game because Exeter like to pass the ball – for a majority of the game you`re chasing after the ball! Sometimes when you play against a team, you think, ‘I wouldn`t mind playing for them` – this is one of them.’

Brown goes on to say that that is one of the things he’s looking forward to now, getting more used to being in possession of the ball and in control of the game as at previous clubs the philosophy hasn’t quite been make the pitch big and make the opposition run – preferring a more direct style of play.

Coming into the camp as a newbie, he’s well on the road to getting to know everyone, especially given our mini tour of Scotland.

‘I know a couple of the lads anyway – I know Christian Ribeiro from my Wales days, and David Noble from when he came on loan to Cheltenham. So it has been good to get amongst the lads and enjoy training and the football. It seems to be a tight-knit bunch as it is – everyone gets along. There`s banter flying around already and I`ve only been here two days!’

With the first friendly now out of the way he’ll be looking to settle in even more over the coming weeks and really start to show what he’s capable of with us.

This site is looking for an editor (at least a contributor or blogger), so if you’re a fan that can offer us a genuine opinion we would love to share it with the masses!
