The last time Exeter City Reserves played Yeovil, on September 27th, they were soundly beaten to the tune of six goals to one. This time, in the Southern League at St James's Park Exeter won a deserved and meritorious victory by 4 goals to 2. Yeovil made about half-a-dozen changes in their team for this game, but if they are hoping to take this side to Southend in the F.A.Cup next week they had better make another half-dozen. For the City Reserves, playing as well as they played so far in the present season, made them look completely inferior, and easily beat them. Pulman gave Exeter the lead after 20 minutes and McConnon equalised just on half-time. By the time O'Donnell had scored again for Yeovil in the second half the Reserves had already got another two goals, Cleverly and Rapley. scoring. The final goal came from Hill 10 minutes from the end.
