Goalie Coach Departs Exeter

Chris Weale the Exeter City goalkeeping coach has departed the Club. He was appointed last summer after Mel Gwinnett left to join MK Dons. Chris has explained that he is leaving his role so he can spend more time with his family but says he has thoroughly enjoyed working with Matt Taylor, the other coaching staff and the players.

In his letter to chairman Julian Tagg, Chris wrote:-

I just wanted to thank you for the opportunity of being part of this fantastic club over this season. I have thoroughly enjoyed working here and developing my skills and, hopefully, I have had a positive influence on not only the group but the squad overall.

However, during the season the time commitment has put a strain on my family and on reflection, and giving it a lot of consideration, I will be leaving my position as first-team goalkeeping coach. I have spoken to Matt (Taylor) and I will stay and support the club’s recruitment of the first team goalkeeping coach and goalkeepers however Matt sees fit.

Thank you again for the opportunity to work at such a fantastic football club.

The Club have advertised for a replacement, see https://www.exetercityfc.co.uk/news/2019/may/vacancygkcoach/
