Goalkeeper Lenny Pidgeley eyes Exeter City first team

Pidgeley became first-choice keeper at Bradford last season

New signing Lenny Pidgeley aims to make the Exeter City goalkeeping jersey his own, despite knowing he may start the season as second choice.

The 27-year-old said he had not come to St James Park from Bradford City to play second fiddle.

"I really want to get back playing regularly, so I am not coming here to be a number two," Pidgeley told the Exeter Express and Echo.

Pidgeley also believes the League One play-offs are a realistic target.

City manager Paul Tisdale has said Artur Krysiak is likely to start the season as his first-choice goalkeeper.

"Artur has been here for a year and has been patient, so the club are looking to give him a chance to play, which I fully understand," said Pidgeley.

"But I will be giving 100% in every training session and every game and I will be knocking on the door for an opportunity as soon as I can.

"I am experienced now and this is an important year for me. I am coming here to play."
