Match 16
21st December 1907
Exmouth United v City Reserves
Friendly:- Exeter City v Yeovil


Saturday, December 21st,
at St James's Park.

The Plymouth and District League match between Exeter City and Green Waves was postponed, no reason given. The City fixed up a friendly with Yeovil, who until this season were known as Yeovil Casuals.
The visitors came down short-handed, and Stoneman, the Friernhay captain, played as a substitute for them.

City: W.Wells; Fenwick, E.Wells; Letheren, Banks, Bastin; Sellick, Singlehurst, Eveleigh, Massey, Drew.

Yeovil:- Bailey; Seymour, Peaty; Galpin, W.Seymour, Maughan; Lodge, Hicks, Clinker, Stoneman, Burton.

Referee:- Mr W.Bastin.

Exeter City won by one goal to nil, but ought to have won with a margin of several goals to spare. Yeovil were only a very poor side, totally unlike the old Casuals. A great improvement is already evident in the City, and it is in a large measure due to the coaching of Banks, and his insisting upon regular training.

Exmouth United v City Reserves 

Exmouth United beat the City Reserves at Exmouth by two goals to nil.
