Biographical Text

Nicky Law began his career with Sheffield United however he failed to make a significant breakthrough into the first team and had loan spells with Yeovil Town and twice at Bradford City. In 2009, he joined Rotherham and later moved to Scotland to join Motherwell. Whilst at Motherwell he was named in the PFA Scotland Team of the Year in 2011/13 and the following summer joined Rangers.

He was released by Rangers in May 2016 and re-signed for Bradford City on the 29th June 2016, played for 2 seasons and was released at the end of the 2017/18 season.

He then joined Exeter City on 2 July 2018.

On signing for the Grecians, manager Matt Taylor said

"He has signed a long-term contract, so I see him playing a big part in terms of our progression as a club over the next couple of years.”

Matt Taylor also thinks that Nicky’s proven record in higher divisions will help City to push on in the 2018/19 campaign.

He continued: “Nicky has vast experience and he hasn’t missed many games through injury. He’s someone I can rely on, a good character, and I can trust him. But more importantly he is a good player.

“He is technically very good and positionally he is excellent as well. He will provide us with a bit of an attacking threat, he could play in the centre of midfield, he could play left, or he could play right.

“I’d like to think his best years are ahead of him. The way we are going to train here we will give him a real impetus in terms of his game going forward. He has made a big commitment with his family. He is moving down with his partner and child so I’m delighted that he has invested in the club and the area.”

(Nicky is the son of Nicky Law Snr. Law played as a defender between 1981 and 1997 for Barnsley, Blackpool, Plymouth Argyle, Notts County, Scarborough, Rotherham United, Chesterfield and Hereford United.)

Nicky made his debut for Exeter City on the 4th August against Carlisle at St James Park in the opening match of the season.
He scored his debut goal in the game against Carlisle scoring Exeter's first goal in a 3-1 win in the 16th minute.
