Match 49

Football League
Chester v ECFC

Saturday, 19th April, 1969
Football League
Chester (away), won 1-0

This was only our second win in nine visits to Chester, and victory came in the closing second when Dermot Curtis slammed the ball past Terry Carling, a goalkeeper who had previously shown great form in stopping another pile-driver from Fred Binney.

Generally speaking the game was not very inspiring for a small crowd of less than 3,000 but Exeter get credit for their determination to chase right to the final whistle.

Chester had a lively attacker in Andy Provan but for the most part the home side seldom extended an Exeter defence. so ably marshalled by Johnny Newman.

Goalscorer Dermot Curtis had pre viously sent a shot crashing against an upright.

Team-Shearing; Crawford, Blain; Kirkham, Newman, Balson; Banks. Binney, Wingate, Curtis, Mitten.
