David Artell believes that Exeter City are reaping the rewards of having stability at the Football Club. Paul Tisdale recently won the EFL League Two award for August’s Manager of the Month award after guiding his side to the top of the table.
Exeter lost last season’s play-off final to Blackpool at Wembley, but do not appear to have suffered any hangover following their unbeaten start to the new campaign. Artell has been impressed by their style of play under the long serving Tisdale.
Ahead of travelling south, Artell told crewealex.net: “Exeter have had stability from the top to the bottom for many years. Paul is an excellent manager and is now the longest serving manager in the Football League. The Director of Football, Steve Perryman, has been there for many years and the chairman and the board of directors have been there for a while also.
“They all know the game and that stability is what gives them strength. They lost Wheeler and Watkins and lost in the play-off final, but they have gone on again. They are strong on and off the pitch and they all know their jobs and roles.
“They play the right way and have good players but so do we. We are more than capable of going there and getting a good result. It certainly is not doom and gloom around our place because we lost on Tuesday night.
“The players have trained well and are looking forward to the challenge ahead.“
