Lawson's debut goal

19 March 2013

Watch D'Ath head home for Exeter

Lawson D'Ath enjoyed the perfect start to his loan spell at Exeter City as he found the back of the net in a 4-1 win for the Grecians.

The 20-year-old headed home on the stroke of half time to put City 2-0 up against League Cup finalists Bradford City, and you can watch his goal by clicking here during the free trial of Player.

Lawson was delighted to score on his first appearance at St James Park, especially as he netted against Exeter earlier this season during his loan spell at Cheltenham!

"Yeah I was buzzing to score - especially as I scored against them last time when I was with Cheltenham! I just gambled on the shoulder of the centre back, it took a bit of a deflection and I managed to get the leap on him and get my head on it.

"I'm not known for my heading, so if it was more than two yards out it wouldn't have gone in! I'm playing just off the striker - I was playing out wide at Yeovil but I'm in my position in the middle and the goals are coming, which is good."

Saturday's goal continues a fine run of goal-scoring form for the youngster - who was encouraged by Eamonn Dolan to move on loan to Exeter City, having managed and played for the Grecians.

"I think I've scored six in 13 games for the under-21s and scored two in two starts in the Football League so it's going well this. We're 5th, and just three points off third which gets automatic promotion.

"I spoke to Eamonn - he said what a great club it is as he was there and he said well done on the goal. I just want to get as many goals as I can and help them get promotion. And just keep playing games - that's what I've missed this season."
