EXETER CITY V FOLKESTONE: F.A. CUP FIRST ROUND
Win With a Lucky Goal:
EXETER CITY 1 FOLKESTONE 0.
Saturday, November 27th 1937, at St James's Park.
Exeter City, by virtue of a lucky diverted shot, will go into the hat for the F. A. Cup second round draw on Tuesday afternoon. A dashing Folkestone eleven gave an uninspired Exeter City team a rare tussle at the "Park," and only a shot by Pope, which hit a visiting defender and left Pickett helpless as the ball changed its direction, prevented Exeter travelling to Kent for a replay.

The City were a long way below their best, and they had all their work cut out to dispose of the plucky Southern League side. How near Exeter were to being forced to journey to Folkestone for a replay can only be appreciated by those who saw the match, for five minutes from the finish Bamsey, standing on the goal-line, deflected the ball for a corner with Church drawn out of his goal.
Uninspiring Attacking Methods.
Judging from the amount of attacking after the interval Exeter should have made the margin of victory more pronounced. That they only scored once tells its own story of uninspiring attacking methods.
The official attendance was 7,281.

at Home Park
Wednesday, December 1st.

Heavy rain showers affected the attendance at Home Park to-day, and there were no more than 1,500 spectators present. The Argyle's team showed several changes compared with the side defeated by Luton Town last Saturday. After a long absence Sammy Black returned to the side at inside left.

Ten minutes before the interval Black gave Argyle the lead. The City forwards were seldom in evidence, but a minute from the half time whistle Bowl equalised with a penalty kick. The second half was much the same as the first with the Argyle well on top. Hullett (3) and Dougan added further goals, and five minutes from time Bussey replied for Exeter.
EXHIBITION MATCH AT LAUNCESTON.
Plymouth Argyle Reserves beat Exeter City Reserves by 3 - 2 in this friendly match, played at Launceston. Dickie scored for Plymouth from Morgan's centre after play had been in progress for five minutes. Ten minutes later Ebdon rounded McColgan and beat Wright from close range for the equaliser. The Argyle led at the interval by 31, two goals having been obtained by Connor, a live-wire centre forward. Davies scored for Exeter in the second half.
