Match 07
12th September 1959
Carlisle (h)

And in the Southern League
Romford v Exeter City

SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 12TH AT ST JAMES'S PARK.
CITY 1 (Thompson)
CARLISLE 3 (Walker 2 Murray).

This was the City's first home defeat of the season, and they really did not deserve much more. Their midfield football was on a par with Carlisle's, but the Cumbrians showed them how to take their chances, and Exeter would not have scored at all but for the penalty thumped home by Thompson, who captained the side in Mitchell's absence. The City team was Lobbett; Foley, MacDonald; Rapley, Harvey, Thompson; Stiffle, Micklewright, Calland, Birch, Dale.
