Matthew Jacob "Matt" Grimes (born 15 July 1995) is an English professional footballer who plays for Exeter City as a midfielder.

Club career[edit]

Grimes came through the Exeter City academy and was given a professional contract by the club in April 2013.[2] He made his League Two debut on 17 August 2013 in a 2–0 victory over AFC Wimbledon at St James Park.[3] In February 2014, Exeter City manager Paul Tisdale described Grimes as the best young player he had seen in his 8 years at the club praising his technical ability and reading of the game.[4] Grimes won Exeter's player of the season award at the end of the 2013-14 season and that summer committed his immediate future to the club despite reported interest from various Premier League sides.[5][6]
