Remember Robbie Simpson?

Seven years after becoming a £300,000 Huddersfield Town signing, the striker has joined Exeter City on a free transfer.

Now 31, he has left the Grecians’ League II rivals Cambridge United after a second spell there.

Simpson came through the Norwich City youth system, but after being released at 16, had to resurrect his career at non-league Cambridge City.

He gained a sports science degree at Loughborough, and represented England Universities, the coached by current Exeter manager and former Town loan player Paul Tisdale.

Simpson signed for Cambridge United in 2006, becoming a fans’ favourite before joining Coventry City a year later.

Despite bright performances for the Sky Blues, his Town carer never took off.

Simpson made only five starts and 16 appearances in all, scoring once.

He had loan spells at Brentford and Oldham Athletic, who signed him permanently in January 2012.

After spending the 2013-14 season at Leyton Orient, he returned to Cambridge United.

Simpson scored nine times in 2014-15 and four this season.

“I’ve got a previous relationship with the Exeter manager,” he explained.

“We’ve kept in contact ever since, and I felt the time was right to come here.

“As soon as I met him again, the deal was done really quickly. I really wanted to come.

“I’ll bring workrate and give it my all, and hopefully some goals and assists.”

Tisdale, who has also signed former Wales Under 21 midfielder Lloyd James from Leyton Orient, said: “Both players come here with pedigree.

“They’ve both played at a higher level, and they are players that we’ve always been keen on.

“They represent a major part of our recruitment this summer.

“Robbie is a forward who can offer a lot to our attack.”

Tisdale, in charge of Exeter for 10 years, was a midfielder who played twice on loan to Town from Southampton in 1996.
