GILLINGHAM 1(Rackstraw) 

Saturday November 28th at St James's Park.

Exeter City:- Shearing; Smyth, MacDonald; Rutley, Mitchell, Anderson; Welsh, Curtis, Carter, Ley, Rees.

Gillingham:- Simpson; Hudson, Hunt; Arnott, Burgess, Farrall; Godfrey, Riggs, Green, Rackstraw, Meredith.

Referee:- Mr J.K. Taylor of Wolverhampton.
Linesmen:- Messrs J.N.Rowley and M.E.Washer.

Gillingham, whose right-back was Geoff Hudson, the old Exeter City defender, broke through to score within five minutes, and the goal was the result of a bad slip by the City rearguard. The City were without Harvey and Hancock, both injured in last week's match. This was a peculiar game from the City's standpoint. In the first half they were unbelievably poor, and in the second they created several winning chances. And if only they could have shown as much attacking enterprise and fight all the way through they could have won quite easily. The injured centre-half, Keith Harvey, was badly missed. But in the attack Carter had hard luck several times and his form continues to improve. And Ley showed that he is worth persevering with.
