Exeter City Reserves and Youth Teams

City in the Southern League

The first team played in the Southern League until it was elected to the Third Diviosn in 1920. From 1920 the resreves then took over the club's first team place in the Southern League. The league was a good training ground and of a high standard for the Grecians players.

Exeter City first entered the Southern league in 1908 in a competetion with the likes of Southampton, West Ham United, Crystal Palace Portsmouth and Plymouth Argyle.

Prior to the First world war the best postion achived by City was 7th in 1912-13.

After the the war the Southern League was subject to a number of changes, in 1927/28 City were runners up the Western Section behind Bristol City Reserves. They won the championship in 1930-31 beating Llanelli in second place by 4 points. And in 1932-33 they finished as runner's up, 3 points behind Champions Bath City. Three years later City finished bottom of the league. 

After 1945, the Southern League was a strong competetion, and in 1950 Gillingham were elected to the Football league in 1950.

Exeter were playing between 42 and 46 matches every season in a league that stretched about Colchester to Torquay. 
With the cost of travelling and falling gates, the league was split into a Premier League and First Division, in 1958/59 with City joining the latter. 

City finished fourth, in 1959/60 but this was their last season, attendances had been good with most crowds in four figures, however economics at City were not good and the club joined the Western League.

The last Southern league match at the Park was against Corby Town on Monday 26th April 1960 , City won 3-0 and the goals were scored by Barry Pulman, Ted Calland and Peter Rackley. Their final game was against Rugby away on Wednesday 4th of May 1960, a 1-1 draw with the last goal in Southern league being scored by Peter Rackley.

Up to this time the club were running a 1st team, Reserves and an "A" team that played in the South Western League. George Gillin decided, due to costs, to scrap the reserves and A team and released 17 players.
Frank Broome also moved to Southend within days of the announcement. 

Exeter had played in the Southern League for 52 years often in front of crowds in excess of 4500.
