Biographical Text

Frank Donoghue was a wartime guest player for Exeter City during 1944/45 when, as the situation eased, a number of games were organised to constitute the first football played by the club since 1939. He had been a professional with Portsmouth and Gillingham before the war. 

He is recorded as playing for Exeter City against Yeovil in February 1945 by which time he had left the Royal Marines and joined the police in Southampton.

Signing for Portsmouth in 1936, Frank never made the first-team before joining Gillingham in 1938 where he played seven league games in 1937/38 and 1937/38.

He also appeared for Yeovil and Petters United after his game for Exeter.
