26th November 1955
CITY WERE ALWAYS MASTERS OF SHREWSBURY.
BEST HOME DISPLAY OF THE SEASON ENDS IN 3-0 VICTORY.
SATURDAY NOVEMBER 26TH
AT ST JAMES'S PARK.
Manager Norman Dodgin, who was away on a scouting mission, missed his team's finest home performance of the season. Exeter had everything this afternoon against Shrewsbury, everything, that is, except the hatful of goals which their spirit and cohesion entitled them.
EXETER CITY:- Hunter; Parr, Mitchell; Davey, Harvey, Dunne; Simpson, John, Burke, Murphy, Rees.
SHREWSBURY:- Crossley; Bannister, Hobson; Wallace, Maloney, Simpson;
Price, Arnott, O'Donnell, McCue, Tyrer.
REFEREE: Mr B.M.Griffiths, of Newport.
The City's forwards moved in great combination, and they were backed up by a sound constructive defence. Rees and Simpson scored Exeter's goals in the first half, and Burke got the third seven minutes before the close. Attendance 6,000.
