A big welcome back to Exeter City for goalkeeper Jökull Andrésson. Jökull has rejoined the Grecians on loan from Reading until the end of the season.
Jökull made nine appearances for the club on an emergency loan earlier in the season and made a huge impression on the City faithful in his short time with the club, before he returned to Reading. In those nine games, he conceded 11 goals and the team scored 22.
Manager Matt Taylor said:-
We are absolutely delighted to welcome Jökull back to the club and he is a player we know well. We tried to get him earlier in the month but we were made to wait. He effected us positively the first time round and it’s absolutely great that he’s back.
Andrésson said it feels great to be back, and commented on being back at St James Park on Tuesday playing against Exeter:-
It’s the club that started off my professional career and it’s an honour to be back. The club, staff, everyone has done so much for me so it’s great to return. Tuesday night was crazy, such a small world. The two games I get with Morecambe one had to be Exeter at St James Park. It was lovely to see everyone. I promise you it was nothing personal – all business!
It’s a long season ahead. Personally, I’ve got to make sure I’m focussed now. I’m eager to go, I can’t wait to get in and restart the season with Exeter.
It’s such a big family. The biggest reason is that I came here at 19 not having played a football league match and everyone was so welcoming. There were no judgements if I made a mistake, and I think that’s why I was probably able to perform at a good level. I really love this club and what you guys have done for me.
