Biographical Text

Bill Thompson was probably City’s shortest serving manager. He was brought to Exeter during a period of rapid changes and was unable to make much impression on the club’s chairman – A. S. Line. The chairman believed that there was no place in the modern game for a manager responsible for both administration and team affairs. He wanted a coach and Bill Thompson either did not, or would not, fit into the new scheme of things. At the end, Thompson left Exeter and was appointed secretary-manager of Worchester City.
