Biographical Text

Cleveland Taylor, on loan from Bolton Wanderers, played a handful of games for Exeter City at the start of 2002/03. He went on to play for a string of clubs most notably Scunthorpe United and Carlisle United.      

A Jamaica under-20 and under-23 international, Cleveland became a Bolton Wanderers trainee in 2000 before signing professionally the following year. After making an early substitute appearance in the FA Cup - against Stockport County in January 2002 - Cleveland was loaned to Exeter City to gain experience at the start of the 2002/03 season.

Joining a team that was already destined to struggle, Cleveland made his Grecians debut on the opening day of the season in the defeat at Shrewsbury Town. He subsequently made two substitute appearances, against Torquay United and Carlisle United, before returning to Lancashire. Cleveland was to end the season on loan at Scarborough in the Conference. 

Leaving Bolton in January 2004, Cleveland joined Scunthorpe United where he spent over four years and was part of the team promoted to the Championship in 2007. He then signed for Carlisle United in January 2008 in a £50,000 deal ahead of joining Brentford in August 2009 for an undisclosed fee. From Griffin Park, Cleveland had a spell on loan with Burton Albion on loan before leaving for St Johnstone in July 2010. Thereafter he returned to Burton Albion prior to appearing for Grimsby Town (on loan), Harrogate Town, Corby Town (on loan) and - from 2016 to 2020 - Barwell, Matlock, Coalville and Stamford and Quorn.
