Former Bristol City Apprentice Scott Golbourne has revealed that he is enjoying life under Exeter City boss Paul Tisdale who he believes can reach the summit of the game.

Now a Grecian after a summer move from Reading, the 21 year old defender who started out on an Apprenticeship says that Tisdale is unlike any manager he has worked with before.

Speaking to BBC Devon, Golbourne said:

“Paul’s got some new, fresh ideas about the game – he’s a pleasure to work with.”

“He could manage at the top level. I’ve got no doubt about that. He’s still only young and he’s got plenty of time on his hands in terms of management and he’s hungry for success. He’s shown that with the work he’s done here.”

Tisdale became the first Manager in the Grecians’ history to secure back-to-back promotions in May when he led his men up to League One.

Although Golbourne’s arrival at the Club came in the wake of this achievement he is not ruling out further success at St James’ Park. He added:

“What Paul’s building here we can only improve at the minute. He’s built a solid team and if we can sustain or do as well as we can this year and then bring in a few more personnel next year – there’s no reason why we can’t go and get promoted again.”
