‘If he was fit I’d have him back’ – Many Exeter City fans react as ex-player seals switch

Dundee United unveiled their latest centre back recruit yesterday, with former Exeter City man Troy Brown penning a six-month deal with the club, as reported by the Scottish Sun.

The 28-year-old left the Grecians at the end of the last campaign after an injury-hit spell. He made 121 appearances in four seasons but managed just 11 in League Two last season as Exeter narrowly missed out on the top seven.

Brown has previously played for Wales up to Under 21 level, as well as counting Ipswich, Rotherham and Cheltenham amongst his former clubs.

He joins Dundee United who narrowly missed out on promotion to the SPFL last season, losing to St Mirren in the play-offs after finishing second in the Championship.

He’s now got a chance to prove his fitness with the Terrors as they hunt a return to the top flight, but Exeter City fans are not convinced he’s going to be able to rise to the challenge. Much of the response to his move has centred around whether he’ll actually get game for Dundee United, or whether he’ll spend more time on the treatment table as he did with them.

Most have wished the popular defender well though, as you’ll see below.
