Biographical Text

Micky Fudge played for Exeter City during 1967/68. He joined the club from West Bromwich Albion and later played for Wellington Town (subsequently renamed Telford United) for whom he scored the winning goal in a FA Trophy final.  

After playing for the Bristol schools side, Micky became an apprentice at West Bromwich Albion where he signed a full contract in December 1963. Scoring a hat-trick against Everton in March 1964, he only scored twice more for Albion as he made a total of thirteen league appearances for the club ahead of his June 1967 transfer to Exeter City.

Arriving at St James’ Park at the age of twenty-one, Micky made a goalscoring debut in the 2-1 opening day defeat at Bradford City on 19 August 1967. Playing in a team which finished 20th in Division Four, he appeared in three-quarters of  City’s league matches (scoring six times) before his release at the end of his only season with the club. 

He subsequently returned to the Midlands to sign for Southern League Wellington Town who, after becoming Telford United, won the FA Trophy in 1971 with Micky scoring the winning goal. He later joined Kidderminster Harriers in 1976 and also appeared for Malvern Town and Brierley Hill whilst becoming a publican in Dawley, Shropshire.
