A year ago Jonny Maxted joined Exeter City, a year on he is off to Wembley with his League Two Club as they battle for a place in League One when they take on Northampton Town in the 2020 EFL League Two Play Off Final.
Jonny has been wearing AB1 Gloves this season and we had the chance to catch up with Jonny ahead of Monday’s big game.
Jonny how does it feel to have a chance to play at Wembley?
I am really excited this is the biggest stage to play on for any player and I am so excited to head to Wembley. It’s a huge game with a chance of promotion.
With no crowds how does this affect the players?
I can’t explain how strange it is with out fans, it’s just so different, it’s all so very odd. It will bring us together as a squad and as a team even more with so many people viewing on TV.
You defeated Colchester after extra-time in second leg, could this be a problem?
Everyone is fresh with no new injuries, we had a day off and went to the beach and had some down time before training again.
You were not at the club however this will be their fourth trip to Wembley for the final in last three years. In 2018 they lost to Coventry, a year before they lost to Blackpool – can this be the third time lucky?
We must forget these game and get the result needed for the fans, forget the past and get the result needed.
How has your season been?
It’s been a really up and down season for me, I had to wait my time to get into the team, then I did played a good few games I then got injured and Covid19 hit so it was a long lay off with out football for me which was really hard.
Have your received your special gloves?
Yes I have thank you so much AB1, what a surprise this was, I have never had glove with iD, I just want the result to go the right way as these will be framed and on the wall. I love them!
