Oates On Trial At Exeter?



It's rumoured that Jimmy Oates is currently on trial at Exeter City, despite having agreed terms with Hereford for next season.

Oates, who was Hereford's captain last season and made 55 appearances, has reportedly been training with the League Two side and played a part in tonight's friendly at Bideford.

Oates has agreed terms with Hereford for the forthcoming season, but BN understands new Grecians manager Matt Taylor was a coach at Hartpury College when Oates was studying there.

When Exeter announced the starting XI on their official Twitter account, there was one trialist and was widely named as the Bulls' Jimmy Oates by Exeter fans. 

Update: This article has since been confirmed.
