LEAGUE TWO Goal-hungry Ajose hoping to kick-on

Nicky AjoseNicky Ajose is hungry to score goals having signed for Exeter City.

The former Charlton forward - who helped Mansfield Town reach last season's League Two play-offs - put pen to paper on a deal at St James Park following a successful meeting with manager City boss Matt Taylor.

Bury-born Ajose, 27, said: “I am delighted. It has been an interesting summer. I came down here and spoke to Matt and when I got on the flight home my mind was made up. I knew where I wanted to spend the next part of my career.

“You just get a feeling when you are at a certain place and it is club with a track record of developing players of all ages.

“The facilities are good, even beyond this level, so all those things and then a manager who has shown a lot of desire to get me here and the coaching staff as well. It just felt right and hopefully it is going to work out well.”

Ajose has already been put through his paces with the rest of the squad at City's Cliff Hill training ground.

He said: “Hopefully the coaching staff can improve me and take my game on further.

“I didn’t know many of the players. They seem to be at really good levels and really fit. Exeter has obviously got a strong group. They have lost a couple of players but it looks like they have signed well so hopefully we can kick on again.

“I am hungry to score goals. It is why I play football. I am someone who likes to score, create and obviously, I want to win, but I like getting in behind defenders and causing problems.

“Yes, for sure we are looking for promotion. It was strange last season because it was quite tight all the way and you could go from seventh to third in a week. Hopefully, this season with the experience the boys have had and the manager, we will be able to get up automatically.”
