Jamie Reid started his one month loan deal against Havant and Waterlooville with a perfectly timed goal, where he lobbed the ball from 20 yards. The Grecian striker set the pace of the game which finished 3-0. Steve Tully was delighted with Reid and said after the match that he put in a full 66 minute shift of commitment.
Reid had a professional debut season to remember for the Grecians.
The Torquay-born youngster, who had come through the Exeter youth ranks, was offered a contract ahead of the 2012/13 season and made his debut for the Grecians on Boxing Day as a late substitute in a home defeat to Oxford United.
He was thrown back into the fray late in the season, and was a surprise starter – admitting his own shock at being selected – when he was named amongst the starters away at AFC Wimbledon in what was a crucial clash at Kingsmeadow.
On his full debut, he netted twice in a 2-2 draw with the Dons and was only denied a hat-trick by an erroneous offside-flag.
He spent a period on loan with Dorchester Town in the Evo-Stik League Southern Premier Division and impressed with the Magpies.
Reid’s 2013/14 season was bittersweet – the year began with a call-up to represent Northern Ireland at under-19 and under-21 level, but a groin injury picked up on international duty persisted for the remainder of the season and curtailed his campaign, to the extent that he was sidelined ahead of 2014/15.
Out with injury for much of 2014/15, he had a short loan spell with Torquay United in March.
He made his return to competitive action for the Grecians in coming off the bench in the 2-0 Johnstone's Paint Trophy first round success against Portsmouth earlier this month.
