Biographical Text

Signed from Bolton Wanders for the start of the 1911-12 season, Chapman didn’t feature in any of the pre-season games, although did play in the Exeter City reserves opening match which was against the Royal Marines at St James’ Park in the Plymouth & District League.

His first team chance arose when regular City keeper Walter Whittaker sustained a broken finger and Chapman was called upon to make his Grecians debut in a 2-1 defeat at Bristol Rovers in October 1911.

He made all of his six appearances for Exeter in the 1911-12 season, although was still playing for the reserves in 1912-13 as understudy to Dick Pym. He left the club to join the Army.
