After playing as an amateur with Tiverton, Pope joined Exeter City for the start of the 1936-37 season and played his first match, a friendly, for the reserves at Barnstaple Town. He was called up into the first team for a 1-1 draw at Watford in November 1936. Pope went on to make 13 league outings that season, scoring four goals, the first of which came in a 3-0 home win over Walsall in January 1937. The following season, at one stage, saw him score five goals in three matches. Despite his good goal per game ratio, Pope was allowed to leave Exeter in the summer of 1938 and he joined neighbours Torquay United, where he played 13 League matches, without scoring.
