Match 38

Football League
ECFC v Newport County

Wednesday, 12th March, 1969
Football League
Newport County (home), won 2-0

All the players got full marks for the amount of effort they put into this game played in atrocious conditions which made accurate football impossible, and although we were glad to win we could not help but feel sorry for Newport who were certainly not two goals inferior to Exeter.

Our man of the match was Fred Bin ney who got both goals and might have completed his hat-trick but for a great save by Weare in the second half. Bin ney's first goal was a perfectly timed header and the second was a reward for his persistence in chasing every oppor tunity.

Team:- Shearing; Smyth, Blain; Parker, Sharples, Newman; Pleat, Binney, Wingate, Kirkham, Mitten.
