Joy for Jacob after successful Exeter trial

Everyone at Saints Southwest sends huge congratulations to Under-10s goalkeeper Jacob, who has recently joined the Exeter City Academy following a successful trial.

"I just want to say thanks to Saints Southwest," said Jacob's dad Andy. "Jacob Started with Brendon at the East Devon Development Centre, then moved up to goalkeeper training with Jay and on to the regional squad with Ryan last year.

"His journey with Saints has been fantastic. He's made some great friends and the coaching staff at all levels have been brilliant.

"I really can't speak highly enough of Ryan, Jay and Brendon and they have been a huge part in allowing him to achieve what he has to this point."

Mike Berry, Football Development Manager at Saints Southwest, added: "We are incredibly proud of Jacob's achievement.

"Jacob's progression through our Football Development programme has been a credit to him and to our coaching team. A special mention to our coaches Brendon, Jay and Ryan for supporting Jacob on his journey.

"Jacob started off at our Development Centre, before being recommended a place in our Devon Academy. Jacob's hard work then earned him a regular place in our Rep Squad teams, playing against opponents such as Exeter City, Plymouth Argyle, Cheltenham Town and Southampton.

"We wish Jacob all the best and we look forward to seeing him at a fixture very soon."
