Match 09
2nd November 1907
Plymouth and District League
Looe v Exeter City


Saturday, November 2nd.

Exeter City's visitors today were Looe, who were admitted to the Plymouth and District League this season. Their record was an excellent one, for they had, before today's match, won four League matches, lost two, and drawn one, and were fourth in the table.

City: Ancliff; Fenwick, Dyer; Letheren, W.Wells, Warner; Singlehurst, Eveleigh, Mudd, Thomas, Clark.
Looe:- Snell; Richards, B.Bartlett; Lang, D.Prideaux, Samuels; -. Bartlett, Pengelley, Angear, F.Prideaux, Willcocks.

Referee:- Sergt-Major Adams.

Looe's colour is green, and the City consequently played in white. Midway through the first half Dyer headed over his own goal line and Letheren luckily kicked away from the corner which followed. Looe came perilously near to scoring once or twice but Exeter raised the siege, and when Clark centred from the left it was Eveleigh's head that appeared above the batch of defenders in the goalmouth, and the ball flashed into the net to a burst of enthusiastic cheering.
Half-time: City 1 Looe 0.

The City re-started in very promising style, and did all the attacking for the first ten minutes. Gradually, however, Looe got going, and Bartlett equalised with the best shot of the match. Looe's second goal was scored by F. Prideaux, and their third by Pengelley following a brilliant seventy-yards run by Angear from his own penalty area. The second half of the game was ruined by a torrential downpour of rain, which quickly turned the field into a morass. Ancliff was weak in goal for Exeter.
