ECFC 1961/62

It is interesting that 1961/62 has no team photo in existence because there was no team to photo. Only 10 professionals, no money to pay players and they had released 12 including selling Theo Foley to Northampton, they also stripped out the A team and stopped playing in the Western League and joined the Exeter and District League.

 As the squad photograph for the 1961/62 season was not done, the Express and Echo produced a photo of the players, who were signed and added a photo of the new players after that.

The Grecians finished in the bottom half of Division Four in this season, placing 18th. Exeter did not have much luck in the cup either, exiting both the FA Cup and League Cup at the first time of asking.

League Position:
24th  P 44 W 13, D 11 L 20 Goals F-A 62-77 Points: 37.
