Exeter have completed the signing of Rhys Evans, bringing the keeper back into the football league as a result.

The former Bradford and Swindon keeper was with Staines last season in non-league but the 30-year-old has agreed a one-year deal to join The Grecians.

Paul Tisdale, as he told BBC Sport, thinks he will be a good signing that will push Artur Krysiak for the number one spot: ‘he was desperate to get back in to League football and the opportunity was there for us.

‘There seems to be a nice balance between him and Artur and it’s someone that I have no problems playing in the first team should he earn it or there be an opportunity.

‘At the moment Artur is number one, he’s in possession of the shirt. Rhys comes into the squad and he’s not coming in to start the season, but it’s not the case of Artur staying all season long.

‘I need someone who’s capable of going in and staying in and not just being available should Artur not play well, but be ready to out-perform Artur and earn a place in the side through performance.’

Are you happy to see the former Chelsea trainee join Exeter?
