WEDNESDAY OCTOBER 7TH 1959 AT ST JAMES'S PARK.
EXETER CITY 2
(Llewellyn Keery Coleman Sutherland).
After their stylish football and hard luck at Hartlepools it seemed certain that Exeter City would beat a Crewe side which had not won an away match all the season.
But everything went wrong for the City, and in the last few minutes skipper Arnold Mitchell had to retire with a bad cut above his left eye.
Team:- Jones; Foley, Whitnall; Mitchell, Oliver, Thompson; Stiffle, Micklewright, Calland, Rees, and Dale.
