Steve Tully has signed a new two-and-a-half year contract with Exeter City.

This fresh deal keeps the defender with the Grecians until 2013.

Tully is now the clubs longest serving player after Paul Jones` departure to Peterborough. Tully joined City from Weymouth in 2007.

The 30-year-old has been a regular in Paul Tisdale`s starting line-up this season at right-back.

Speaking to thisisexeter.co.uk Tully said:

‘The club’s getting better every week. The progression of the club is good and that’s what I signed for, that’s what I want to do. I feel like I’m improving every year and as long as I can keep improving that’s what I want to do.

‘When I first joined the club Exeter were in the Conference but the club’s been on a steady rise and for myself its been on a high since I moved here.

‘I have enjoyed the place, enjoyed playing under Paul (Tisdale, City manager), I love the club and have a great rapport with the fans, and being an ex-Torquay player sometimes that doesn’t happen.

‘I will be 33 by time that contract runs out and I will see where that takes me. If I still feel as fit as I do now then I will want to keep playing.’
