1991/92 From the Express and Echo 

THERE was more turmoil even before a ball had been kicked.
Manager Terry Cooper resigned in protest at the treatment of close friend and ex-chairman Ivor Doble and was quickly appointed Birmingham manager. 
Alan Ball was appointed to fill the hot-seat vacancy and led Exeter on a hugely-inconsistent spell. Ball
considered resignation as the campaign began with five straight defeats but quickly changed his mind after a dramatic 1-0 victory over Torquay sparked a 10-match unbeaten run.
THE CLIMAX
AN appalling April, in which City reaped just one point from seven games, forced the Grecians to go to already-relegated Darlington needing a win to be sure of Third Division survival.
In feeble fashion, City crashed 5-2. But they were spared the plunge because Bury were losing 2-0 at Preston.
