Match 09
19th September 1959
Notts County (a)

SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 19TH AT NOTTINGHAM COUNTY GROUND.

NOTTS COUNTY 3
(Forrest Horobin Roby)
EXETER CITY 0.


Exeter City were two goals down in the first quarter of an hour and the score remained thus until the very last minute. Then a slip by the defence gave Notts another goal. In the first half the City were too slow, and their backs' lack of speed cost them the goals. But they always tried to play football, and with a bit of luck could have saved a point in the second half.

Notts: Smith; Butler, Noon; Sheridan, Rawson, Carver; Roby, Horobin, Newsham, Forrest, Withers.

Exeter City: Jones; Foley, McDonald; Mitchell, Oliver, Thompson; Stiffle, Rees, Micklewright, Birch, Calland.

Referee Mr L.J.Harmer of Chorley.
