Exeter City manager boss Paul Tisdale says the club can be proud of the role they played in Matt Taylor's development.
The centre-half joined former Premier League side Charlton on a free transfer last week after four years at St James Park.
"I'm delighted for Matt," Tisdale told the Exeter Express and Echo. "He made it clear he wanted a challenge elsewhere and I was more than happy to facilitate that. It will be great for him to go and play on a big stage.
"I spotted him playing for Sheffield Hallam University and Andy Tillson and I worked with him at Team Bath.
"I'm delighted he had four years with Exeter, we have helped him along the way."
