Match 40.
19th March 1960
Barrow (a)

And in the Southern League
Yiewsley v City Reserves

EXETER CITY 2 BARROW 2
AT ST JAMES'S PARK.

SATURDAY MARCH 19TH:

CITY DROP ANOTHER POINT.

At home to Barrow, who were fourth from bottom of the League, Exeter City were a goal down in six minutes and at half-time were losing by 2 to 1. They equalised again in the 60th minute to share the spoils. The City had plenty of the game, which was to be expected, but were unable to break down a tight defence and make enough openings of the sort which bring goals.

City: Jones; Foley, MacDonald; Mitchell, Oliver, Thompson; Stiffle, Micklewright, Wilkinson, Calland, Dale.

Barrow:- Hayes; Robinson, Cahill; Clark, Marsden, McNab; Kerr, Bannan, Robertson, Murdock, Kemp.

This was another game in which the City lost a point through a lack of penetration and also of scheming ability in their attack. There was a lot of good football on the muddy surface, and although they lost two goals the City defence could not be faulted. The City had enough of the game to have won ten times over but they need to be faster when they start a move goalwards and a lot more direct. Dale was the best forward and MacDonald the best defender.
