Marriott bound for Premier League

Marriott bound for Premier League

Exeter City goalkeeper and general manager Andy Marriott is set to leave the club after being offered a role as the assistant to the sporting director at West Brom.

The 39 year-old will move to The Hawthorns in January following over three years with Exeter City.

Marriott moved to The Grecians in 2006 from Boston United and has gone on to make over 50 appearances for the Devon club.

Marriott was a regular for large parts of the 2007/08 season which saw City earn promotion back to the football league, but he failed to make a single appearance in the following campaign playing second fiddle to Paul Jones.

Marriott returned to the side in October 2009 and went on to make 16 further appearances that season, the highlight of which was a stunning display in a 1-0 defeat at Millwall.

This term Marriott has been third choice keeper behind Jones and summer recruit Artur Krysiak. But he`s become more prominent in his role of general manager at the club, a position which he's held for 18 months.

Speaking to exetercityfc.co.uk City boss Paul Tisdale paid tribute to the role that Marriott has played at the club.

'We are always sad to see a player leave us and Andy is no different,' he said.

'He's been a great asset to us, both in his role as general manager and also when called upon for the first team.

'Andy has always been a safe pair of hands and with more than 20 years of experience he's been fantastic in bringing on Paul and Artur's development here.

'Its no surprise to us that he's got a job at a Premiership side and I'm sure he will a huge success there.'
