Biographical Text

Goalkeeper Kevin Maloy appeared for Exeter City right at the start and at the end of the 1991/92 having started his career with Plymouth Argyle. He also enjoyed many seasons playing for Taunton Town. 

Signed as an apprentice by Plymouth Argyle, he was soon released and played football in the Plymouth area before joining Taunton Town who he helped win the Western League title in 1989/90.

Kevin gave up his mail delivery job to turn professional with Exeter City in July 1991 and went straight into the team to make his debut against West Bromwich Albion in a 6-3 defeat.

He played the first two games that season - and the final two - prior to his release in May 1992.  Returning to Taunton Town, Kevin played in the 1994 FA Vase final and in another Western League championship-winning team.

Kevin eventually secured a deserved step up the pyramid in 1996 when he signed for Southern League Cheltenham and remained at the same level when he later joined Dorchester Town.       

Kevin's career was cut short in 2001 when he was forced to quit the game at the age of 34 after twice breaking his leg. Dorchester arranged a testimonial against Portsmouth when Kevin, now back delivering the post in Exeter, took the field for a token ten-minute appearance.
