Biographical Text

Ian Wadsworth was a late-season trialist who appeared for Exeter City in a Devon Bowl final against Plymouth Argyle in 1986. Not appearing for City in the Football League, he had earlier made league appearances for Huddersfield Town and Doncaster Rovers.

Ian had made one league appearance for Huddersfield in the 1984/85 season and, after being deemed as surplus to requirements at Leeds Road, played two league games on a non-contract basis for Doncaster Rovers during the following season.

Ian subsequently headed to Exeter City for a trial towards the end of the 1985/86 season and was promptly named in the squad for the 4-2 Devon Bowl final win over Plymouth Argyle on 7 May 1986 when he came on as a 64th minute substitute for Tony Kellow. 

Reportedly offered a one-year contract by City, Ian declined the offer stating he was seeking a two-year deal. He was later reported to have had a similar trial with Burnley as well as appearing in German football with FC Zons 1911 e.V.
