Jason Percival, signed from Stoke City, appeared in four league games for Exeter City each time as a substitute. Proving to be the only appearances of his Football League career he then played semi-professionally in the Midlands.
Jason became a Stoke City trainee upon leaving school and soon signed as a full professional. Released at the end of 1992/93 having never made a first-team appearance, the nineteen-year-old Jason arrived at St James’ Park on a one-year deal in July 1993.
Making an early bow as a substitute in the heavy defeat at Bradford City on 28 August 1993, Jason featured just three more times in the league, each appearance coming from the bench, in what proved to be a frustrating single-season stay with the Grecians.
Dropping out of the professional game at the age of twenty, Jason returned home and joined Nuneaton Borough followed by spells with Hinckley Town, Atherstone Town, Racing Club Warwick, Stratford Town, VS Rugby, Barwell and - in 2005/06 - a further stint with Atherstone.
Jason later became a sales manager with a shoe company in Staffordshire.
