OL­LIE Watkins can­not wait to pull on an Ex­eter shirt next sea­son af­ter sign­ing a twoyear deal with the Gre­cians – his first pro­fes­sional con­tract..

The 18-year-old has starred for City’s ti­tle-win­ning un­der-18 team this sea­son, but is yet to make a first team ap­pear­ance.

When he does though, he knows he will need to adapt his game as he makes the step up.

“It is a big step from the youth team to the first team and play­ing with men. The phys­i­cal side of the game is the big­gest thing,” he said.

“I would like to bulk up a bit and get a bit more phys­i­cal and I just can’t wait to get go­ing.”
