Biographical Text

The 1983-84 season was a distinctly unmemorable one, as Exeter City not only ended at the bottom of the Third Division, and were thus relegated, but they also fielded a number of loan and non-contract players as player-manager Gerry Francis attempted to halt the slide.

Auguste arrived at St James’ Park as a non-contract player, aged 27, in September 1983, and it would be fair to say that for the most part of his short stay, having previously played for Hounslow, he looked out of his depth at Football League level.

It is believed that Gerry Francis’s brother was the link that brought the player to Devon, for Martin Francis also played for Hounslow at the time.

He made his Grecians’ debut in a 2-0 defeat at Bristol Rovers on 17th September 1983, but 10 league outings and two months later, had departed, indeed returned to his former club, Hounslow.
