Troy Archibald-Henville officially had four spells at Exeter City. Starting with two loan spells, he then signed permanently before returning again after a four year absence.
London-born Troy began his career at Tottenham Hotspur. He would go on to captain Spurs’ reserve side and feature in the first-team squad on two occasions including the North London derby in December 2007.
After a temporary switch to Norwich City, Troy joined Exeter City on loan in January 2009 from then-parent club Tottenham. An imposing centre-half with a quick turn of pace, Troy made a big impact during his first stint in Devon helping the Grecians clinch promotion to the third tier of English football. Following a brief return to White Hart Lane, Troy returned for a second loan-spell at City in July 2009. This time there would be no return to Spurs as he put pen to paper on a permanent deal with the Grecians on 1 February 2010.
A knee injury curtailed his 2009/10 campaign, but Troy would go on to make eighty-one appearances for the Grecians overall and secure the supporter’s Player of the Year accolade for 2011/12.
After spells with Swindon Town and Carlisle United, Troy returned to the Grecians in 2016 in what he described as a ‘homecoming’. He was released by the Grecians at the end of the 2017/18 season and later worked as a youth coach at Tottenham Hotspur.
