Biographical Text

Arthur ‘Bob’ Greenaway made a solitary appearance for Exeter City in 1951 having joined the club from Plymouth Argyle. It was his only appearance in the Football League. 

Bob was on the books as a junior at his home town club of Swindon Town before signing for Plymouth Argyle in August 1947. A regular for the reserves, he never made a first-team appearance before eventually moving to Exeter City in May 1950 apparently on the recommendation of City defender Ray Goddard. 

Bob played a single league game for the Grecians in a 5-0 defeat at Millwall in April 1951 before rejoining Swindon Town. Not playing in the Football League during his second stint at the County Ground, Bob remained in the Swindon area until his death on 29 September 2004.






Don't think the player pictured is Arthur Greenaway

Have a picture of him from a Plymouth handbook - can send if you email me.

Thanks Tony
