Match 25
12th December 1959
Doncaster Rovers (a)



And in the Southern League Exeter Reserves v Trowbridge

SATURDAY DECEMBER 12TH: DONCASTER 0 EXETER CITY 1.

FIRST VISIT TO THE DONCASTER ROVERS GROUND SUCCESSFUL.

Exeter City got two very useful points from their first visit to the Doncaster Rovers' ground at Belle Vue. They won by the only goal of the game but their superiority was greater than this suggests.

Doncaster:- Nimmo; Makepeace, Hymers; Marshall, Lunn, Kilkenny; Sharpe, Broadbent, Leighton, Fernie, Walker.

Exeter City: Jones; Butterworth, MacDonald; Mitchell, Oliver, Thompson; Stiffle, Rees, Wilkinson, Micklewright, Dale.

Rees, who continues to be Exeter's most consistent forward, scored the winning goal after 25 minutes' play. Mitchell ran clean through the home defence, and when his shot was parried by Nimmo the City inside right was on hand to tap the ball into an empty net from a yard's range.


Southern League
Exeter Reserves at home beat Trowbridge 3-1.
