Exeter City have announced the signing of Hereford FC captain Jimmy Oates after a successful trial period with the club.

The defender spent time playing in his native Australia before joining Hereford, a club he has captained for the past two seasons.

Last year, Oates helped the Bulls to promotion to National League North as they amassed 113 points over a 46-game campaign.

He has featured in all of the Grecians’ pre-season games so far, playing a great deal in the matches with Bideford, Truro City, Bath City and Weymouth, impressing Matt Taylor and his coaches to earn himself a contract at St James Park.

On Oates’ signing, manager Matt Taylor said: “He (Jimmy) has come here on what has turned out to be a three-week trial on the back of a few really good seasons with Hereford. He has done really well, he is an athlete, powerful and he is a good age in that I can trust him defensively.”
