Nutland, Percival


Yeovil, Somerset



Biographical Text

Yeovil-born Percy Nutland, previously with Yeovil and Petters United, made a solitary Southern League appearance for Exeter City in September 1919. 

Born in Yeovil he fought in the First World War for the Somerset Light Infantry. Wounded in action he was one of four brothers who served including Ernest who was killed.

Signed on amateur forms for the 1919/20 season, Percy was to make a single first-team appearance against Brentford in October 1919 before returning to Yeovil and Petters United newly elected to the Western League.

A wonderful website for info. Although, I think it wasn't Percy that played for Exeter and Yeovil but his brother Reginald.

Hi Paul, really sorry taken so long to get back to you. I've only just seen this message. When Yeovil played Glastonbury on the 6th September 1919, Yeovil's first game after the war. The match report has R. Nutland (Reginald) playing for Yeovil and later in the report it says he was on amatuer forms at City along with H. Brown.

Of course, the newspaper could be wrong as I think there wasn't much age difference between Reginald and Percy.

Love this site by the way, the amount of work that's gone onto it is incredible.

Hi Mike, 

We have Percy playing for City, where does the info about Reginald come from.
