Exeter City Manager Matt Taylor was asked in his weekly pre match press conference about the reintroduction to his squad about Ben Seymour and Jordan Dyer after their loan spells with Yeovil were brought to an end.

He confirmed that the busy schedule meant he would be using his entire squad and that both were back in training with the first team this week but did suggest at least one of the duo could be back out on loan soon.

“Yeah, they returned and trained with the group, there’s always the option and opportunity that both players could go back out on loan – possibly one sooner rather than later.”

“It’s a shame because, we sent them out on loan to get game time, the experience and opportunity and they didn’t quite feel that they got that due to whatever reason”

“They come back to us with a little more hunger to do well for ourselves and to impress in training and then, their next loan, really make the most of it”

Ben Seymour started twice for the Glovers making four league appearances altogether, whilst Jordan Dyer was on the pitch for a total of 2 minutes against Woking on Tuesday night.

STAT TIME

In terms of minutes on the pitch, we think that the four loans to have ended have spent the following time in the starting  XI.

Of the four loans that have gone back:

  • Ben Seymour: 329 minutes
  • Dion Pereira: 90 minutes
  • Lewis Simper: 16 minutes
  • Jordan Dyer: 2 minutes

To add a little context to the numbers, Seymour missed the Grimsby game due to COVID issues, Pereira decided he did not want to return after one match, and COVID and injury kept Simper out for most of his time at the club.

It is only Dyer where you feel the parent club has a legitimate complaint for a lack of opportunities offered to their player.
