Tisdale - Great Way To End The Season

Tisdale - Great Way To End The Season

Manager Paul Tisdale was delighted to end the 2013-14 season with back to back victories following our 2-0 win over Hartlepool yesterday.

Thanks to goals from Keohane and Wheeler, Exeter finish the season in 16th place in the league and obviously the gaffer was delighted to end on a high, and with so many young players putting together a very good showing on the last day as he knows it bodes well for further improvement in 2014-15.

Speaking to the Official Site following the game the gaffer rightly praised everyone, but was quick to point out that the youngsters didn't get too carried away with the win, because it was a final day of the season affair and both clubs had already secured their League 2 status for the coming campaign.

'It was extremely good, the players played to the disciplines I asked of them, they defended the box really well, and they scored two really good goals. If there was a game for players to play relaxed and to express themselves, this was it. It's not always like that, and I warned them in the dressing room that it won't always be like this. I went through all the young players and told them, and they've still got things to work on.'

Tisdale jokes that having spoken to them they were 'a bit sore' that he picked on that but he knows it's the reality of football and they have to stay grounded, but he knows 'they were great today, you can only compete against the team that is in front of you and they did that really well.'

The gaffer says that ultimately Exeter have to ensure that this is a season we learn from and build on next campaign to have made all the worries and risks worthwhile, and he knows the youngsters that have been relied upon this season will be all the better for it, and where we have fallen down this season is relatively obvious and that's something he can look at over the summer and try and fix, whether it's by a bit of wheeling and dealing, or having certain things in training a bit more focused on those issues.

'There has been a lot learned, so it has been a very useful season - albeit a little stressful.'
