Match 15

Football League
Exeter City v Aldershot

Saturday, 5th October, 1968
Football League
Aldershot (home), Draw  0-0

Although both goals had some narrow escapes this game became rather a bore and no-one could blame the spectators who chose to go home early.
Obviously, therefore, this was an after noon that spectators and players would prefer to forget, and apart from Cec. Smyth none of the Ctiy team did any thing to enhance their reputations. To add to our troubles skipper Johnny Newman was injured in the 65th minute and had to be assisted from the field. Keith Whatling came on as substitute to make his first appearance for nearly 12 months, and the fact that this eager young player proved his fitness was the only relief to this dismal picture.
Shearing; Smyth, Balson; Blain, Harvey, Newman (Whatling); Corr, Banks, Curtis, Mitten, Pleat.
