King Edward's footballers receive team talk from Exeter boss Paul Tisdale
A pep talk from Exeter City manager Paul Tisdale gave King Edward’s School students a lift ahead of their upcoming trip to Spain.
Tisdale, a former pupil at Beechen Cliff who went on to play for Southampton and Bristol City, gave a talk on football strategy to the 1st XI, who head off on a five-day football development tour to the Villarreal Academy on Thursday.
Since leaving his post as Team Bath coach to take charge at Exeter almost seven years ago, Tisdale has led Exeter to two promotions as well as their joint-highest ever league finish in 2011.
KES head of football Neil Purcell said: “We are extremely grateful to Paul for sharing his insight, expertise and understanding of the beautiful game with our 1st XI.

“He brought his wealth of experience in the professional game into school and demonstrated to our boys how important it is to think a little more deeply about their roles and responsibilities within the team and also how to apply that understanding to specific positions they play.
“More than this, his talk moved the whole team to recognise the value in preparation, attitude and knowledge of what their team’s key priorities have to be in any given match situation.”
