ECFC Museum | The History of St James Park

The History of St James Park, home to Exeter City Football Club (2016-17) was a one-year project funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, which aimed to identify, document, preserve and share the tangible and intangible history of the Club for communities of fans, staff and players in Exeter and beyond.
The project involved mass photography, which took place at the end of the 2015/6 season and produced around 300 evocative images of places, people and football, the best of which are included in this exhibition that was opened by Alan Banks and Graham Rees on the 23rd of March 2017 at St James Park.

The remainder of this exhibition, which can be found in the first floor corridor that links the Park building to the Main Stand, contains images collected for the Grecian Archive, which tell a visual history of Exeter City Football Club and our home ground between 1901 and 2017.

Moving through the exhibition you will see panels that represent a number of key themes, including the Early Years; Times of War; City Highs; Redevelopments; Classic Matches; Advertising & Sponsorship; and City Squads.

Two additional panels, titled ‘Park People’ were also created to acknowledge many of the individuals who play a vital role at the football club, throughout the week and on match-days.

For more detailed information about the historic panels in the exhibition, please visit the History of St James Park Exhibit on the Grecian Archive.

Additionally, should you have any items that you would like to donate to the archive or museum, please contact through the archive, or via email at
