Peter Holcroft, a former Everton trainee, appeared half-a-dozen times for Exeter City when on loan from Swindon. He later played non-league football in the North West of England.
Peter joined Everton as a trainee in 1992 and signed full professional forms in July 1994. Playing regularly for the reserves Peter was never given a first-team opportunity and signed for Swindon Town in November 1996.
Making just three league appearances for the Wiltshire club, Peter arrived at Exeter City on a month’s loan in August 1997 and made debut in the victory at Doncaster Rovers on 30 August 1997. Appearing six times in total he made his final Grecians appearance against Colchester United on 27 September 1997.
Returning to Swindon, and later given a free transfer, Peter’s games for Exeter City proved to be the end of his Football League career as he was to move back to the Liverpool area and play non-league football for Morecambe, Burscough, Skelmersdale United, Northwich Victoria and - by 2001/02 - Kidsgrove Athletic.
