League Two side Exeter City have signed goalkeeper Lewis Ward from Reading.

The 22-year-old did not make an appearance for the Royals, spending last season on loan at fourth-tier clubs Northampton and Forest Green.

Ward had a year left on his Reading deal, though it is not known whether Exeter paid a fee for him.

"We have got a good relationship with Reading and I must thank them in terms of the part they played in this deal," said Exeter boss Matt Taylor.

Exeter lost their first-choice keeper Christy Pym to Peterborough last month.
