8th February 1908
Friendly:- Exeter City v Exmouth United
EXETER CITY V. EXMOUTH UNITED
Saturday, February 8th.
This match, a "friendly," was the cleanest and brightest game seen at St James's Park this season. The Grecians were much the better of the two sides all through, and of course did not find in the "Canaries" all those qualities which are found week after week in elevens from he Plymouth and District.
City: W.Wells; Fenwick, E. Wells; Banks, Mudd, Oliver; Sellick, Eveleigh, Massey, Singlehurst, Drew.
Exmouth: Sturge; Parry, Atkins; Foreman, Warner, Foster; Lloyd, Rose, Turner, Toby, Hyde.
Referee:- Mr W. Bastin, Sec., East Devon League.
Every man on the Exeter City side has shown a remarkable advance since Jack Banks has joined the club, but in this match most of the honours belonged to Charlie Drew, who played a rattling good game, his centreing of the ball being splendidly accurate. Banks had the misfortune to sprain his ankle and it is feared he will be out of action for a week or two. Letheren has been laid up with the same trouble for quite a few weeks now. Fenwick with a penalty for "hands," Eveleigh, Sellick and Massey scored for the City, who won by 4 goals to 1.
Exmouth's goal was obtained by Rose in an empty net after Wells had been drawn out of his goal.
Exeter City 4 Exmouth United 1.
