David Frodsham:

I am writing an article for a football programme to be issued on 17/10. This is an anniversary date of the game between Southport and Exeter City on 17/10/1959. I know the score was 3-2 but I would like to know the names of the Exeter Scorers please. I have just read the obit of Theo Foley who played in the game and wondered if he scored by any chance.

Can you advise me please.

Thanks

David Frodsham
