Christy, a product of the club’s youth academy, has excelled and improved during his time in the first team. He has totalled 166 games for the Grecians in his career.

At the age of 24-years-old, City are not entitled to compensation for Christy.

Chairman Julian Tagg, said:-

While we are disappointed not to receive a compensation fee for Christy, another one of our talented academy graduates, he has been a fantastic servant for this club playing well over 150 first team games.

Christy has been a credit to Exeter City throughout his time at St James Park, not only because of his superb performances on the field, but because he is also been at the forefront of our work in the community attending many events put on by our CITY Community Trust.

We thank Christy for his hard work and commitment during his time with us and we wish him well for the future.

Peterborough boss Darren Ferguson said of the move:-Christy Pym and Jordan Moore-Taylor talking together at Wembley in the Coventry vs Exeter game

Obviously this is a very important position that we were looking to recruit in and Christy will come in and add competition for places. He is very mobile, aggressive and is very good with his feet and can play out from the back as I like to do.

He has kept over 30 clean sheets in the last two seasons and has been a regular in the starting line-up for the Grecians. I am really pleased to get the deal done and am looking forward to working with him.

Christy Pym explained the move:-

I had a few options, but I met the gaffer for an hour and had a look around the training ground and straight away I knew that it was the right club for me at this moment in my career.

I have done my time in League Two and managed to play a lot of games and this feels like the next step for me. I wanted to join a club that has aspirations of getting into the Championship and this fits perfectly for me. I listened to the plans from the manager and it is exciting and I can’t wait to help play my part.
