Biographical Text

McCulloch had a good deal of experience in his native Scotland prior to signing for Exeter City in November 1921.

He had played for Dumbarton, playing 18 games scoring 13 goals in 1917/18 and Rangers, Glentoran (in the Irish League) and Airdrieonians. The latter club had wanted to sign him on a permanent contract after a successful trial with them, but McCulloch decided to sign for Dykehead instead. The Scotish South-Western league side with whom he played Scottish Cup ties with.

He had served in the same army battalion during the First World War with City goalkeeper, Jimmy Watson.

McCulloch made his debut in a 1-0 home win over Millwall three days after signing for the Grecians. He had a goal disallowed as another player was in an offside position.

This proved to be his only Exeter City outing as by the following week it was announced that McCulloch had returned to Scotland for reasons of a private nature.

On 6th December 1921 it was reported that he would not play for the club again, after he was brought before the board of directors on a question of discipline.
