Match 49
25th April 1960
Darlington (a)

And in the Southern League
25th April ;- City Reserves v Corby Town
28th April :- Ramsgate v City Reserves

MONDAY APRIL 25TH: WILKINSON'S LAST-MINUTE WINNER. 

DARLINGTON 0 EXETER CITY 1 AT FEETHAMS.

Exeter City came out on top in a rare battle of thrills and spills on the Darlington ground on Monday evening thanks to a goal scored by Jack Wilkinson with practically the last kick of the game. That was his one and only shot of the match but it brought a great goal and two points for the Grecians.

Darlington:- Turner; Furphy, Henderson; Spencer, Greener, Milner; Rayment, Smith, Carr, Baxter, Redfearn. Exeter City: Jones; Foley, MacDonald; Mitchell, Harvey, Thompson; Welsh, Rees, Bennett, Wilkinson, Stiffle.

The game was acknowledged as the best seen at Darlington for some years. Right from the start it was packed with action and most of it took place in Exeter's half of the field. The City had their backs to the wall almost throughout, and their defence, which was absolutely impenetrable, took just about every honour in the book.

Southern League
City Reserves v Corby Town 

Playing against Corby Town at St James's Park the City Reserves won a handsome victory by 3 goals (Rackley, Pulman and Calland) to nil.

THURSDAY APRIL 28TH:
EXETER RESERVES COME UNSTUCK.

RAMSGATE 3
EXETER CITY RESERVES 1
AT RAMSGATE.


Possibly expecting an easy win over Ramsgate Athletic, who are ten places below them in the Southern League, Exeter City Reserves came badly unstuck at the seaside on Thursday evening.

Ramsgate:- Dwyer; Winfield, Crombie; Clifton, Marshall, Mullins; Bevan, Callan, Jeans, Jones, Rickett.

Exeter City: Lobbett; Butterworth, Whitnall; Cragg, Rapley, Cleverly; Atkins, Pulman, Hill, Dale, Rackley.

For most of the game Exeter were hard pressed to keep the Ramsgate forwards out, and doing very little attacking themselves they were fortunate not to lose by a greater margin than two goals.
