Molesley joins Exeter

Mark Molesley has left AFC Bournemouth and joined League Two side Exeter City on a free transfer.

The 31 year old has had his current contract with the Cherries terminated by mutual consent which has allowed him to join Exeter on a deal until the end of the season.

Since Molesley initially joined the club on a loan deal agreed by former manager Jimmy Quinn in October 2008, he has made 60 appearances for the club and played an important role in the side when the Cherries avoided relegation out of the Football League following a seventeen point deduction.

Unfortunately he has also struggled with injuries during his time at Dean Court, just this season he was struggling with a Achilles' tendon injury, which was the latest injury in a long line of injuries for the popular midfielder in recent years.

Between October 2009 and August 2011 Molesley made just two appearances, totalling 16 minutes towards the end of the 2010/11 season.

A persistent foot problem then kept Molesley out for around a year before an ankle injury in March 2011 delayed his return until the tail-end of that season.

At the beginning of last season Molesley was ready to return and featured for the Cherries in ten of the first eleven games of the season before a hamstring injury picked up against Leyton Orient in September sidelined him until November.

Molesley made just four further appearances for the Cherries that season and spent the last month on loan at League Two side Aldershot, where he made eight appearances (two starts) scoring once.

He made six appearances on loan for Plymouth at the end of 2012, but returned following the sacking of Carl Fletcher.

AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe told the Daily Echo...

"It is a really difficult one for us. We love Mark to bits both as a person and a player.

"We will always be very fond of him for what he achieved here, especially during our Great Escape season.

"But from his perspective and our perspective, I think it is best, at this moment, if we unfortunately go our separate ways and that Mark starts his career afresh somewhere else...'


Exeter manager Paul Tisdale told exetercityfc.co.uk...

"Mark has always been a tough competitor whenever he`s played against us and will offer us an immediate solution to the void left by the absence of Liam on the right of midfield. He will bring strength and knowhow to the team."

Sad to see him go but it was inevitable. I Wish him luck at Exeter.
