16th April 1960
And in the Southern League:
Guildford v City Reserves
EXETER CITY 4 ROCHDALE 1
AT ST JAMES'S PARK. SATURDAY APRIL 16TH:
CITY FORWARDS SHINE AT LAST.
This afternoon at St James's Park the Exeter City supporters were treated to one of their team's best performances of the season. Without a goal to their credit in any of their last four games the City forwards quickly made amends today, Rees shooting a couple of grand goals in the 4th and 17th minutes.
City: Jones; Foley, MacDonald; Mitchell, Harvey, Thompson; Stiffle, Rees, Wilkinson, Micklewright, Dale.
Rochdale:- Hayes; Milburn, Edwards; Bodell, Aspden, Bushby; Barnes, Spencer, Lord, Cairns, Collins.
After the interval came two more goals, by Wilkinson direct from a free kick despite the packing of their goal by Rochdale, and in the very next minute by Micklewright with a lovely shot just inside the upright.
Guildford 1 City Reserves 3.
Exeter's goals were scored by Rackley, Hill, Bennett
