Exeter City's big screen plans revealed

Plans for a giant new electronic screen at Exeter City Football Club’s ground, St James Park, have been submitted to the city council.

As part of major improvements this summer, the club plans to install the 8.64 x 5.12 metre (29 x 17 feet) LED scoreboard towards the corner behind the St James Road away end, nearest the recently built Stagecoach Adam Stansfield Stand.

Subject to approval by Exeter City Council’s planning department, the screen could be installed before the opening home League Two fixture of the season against Bradford City on Saturday 7 August.

Exeter prepare for semi-finals on the back of unprecedented fan generosity

As the coronavirus pandemic drags on, one aspect of the lockdown has been the coming together of families and friends during the crisis. But, this camaraderie has transcended not just households, but football clubs too. As clubs up and down the country gear themselves up for the business end of the season, those at the bottom end of the Football League have been speaking out about the financial dangers that suspending the season has had.

One such club is that of Exeter City. One of the sides that have qualified for the League Two play-offs - with the rest of the season coming to...

Do you own a piece of Exeter City Football Club?

Exeter City Football Club is attempting to trace around 100 people who have bought shares in the club over the last century.

The club, which is legally obliged to hold an up-to-date share register at St James Park, is making a concerted effort to track down a number of missing shareholders or the next of kin of those who have passed away.

It is believed the earliest shares date back to the 1930s and may have been passed down through people’s families.

Nick Hawker, chair of Exeter City Supporters’ Trust, said: ‘We are making a real effort to find all the Club’s...

Whether you like it or you don't, sponsorship money is vital to the survival of professional football teams both large and small. The money generated by fans going through turnstiles and buying official shirts is now a mostly-insignificant aspect of a club's annual income. Television money, commercial partnerships, and sponsorships have a far bigger role to play - and down in League Two, where Exeter City are, having a sponsor can be the difference between making ends meet and failing to do so.

Exeter hasn't gone as far with sponsorship as other clubs have in the past. So far, we...

Exeter City Manager Comparison: Matt Taylor vs Paul Tisdale

Former captain Matt Taylor took over from outgoing boss Paul Tisdale in the summer of 2018, and the 38-year old has managed to get the fans back on side during his 18-month tenure at St.James' Park. Taylor has spoken countless times about the club's complete commitment to youth, and has regularly praised his predecessor for laying the foundations by helping to establish a core group of players, the majority of whom have graduated from the club's hugely successful academy. We take a look at how Taylor's time in charge compares to Tisdale's lengthy stint in the dugout.

We are getting to the business end of the season. A sudden bad run of results now will derail all the hard work of the previous eight months. Likewise, a well-timed run between now and May, like a 1500-metre runner sitting on the shoulder of his or her rival on the final bend before kicking on for the finishing line, can make all the difference. So which will it be for The Grecians?

Increased Expectations

At the beginning of the season, Exeter City, their fans and players were hoping for, and indeed expecting nothing less than a play-off spot. Signs were certainly good as...

Are there Serious Doubts Regarding Exeter City’s Academy?

Authored by David Banks
Posted: Tue, 03/03/2020 - 10:44am

Matt Taylor, who is the manager for Exeter City has called upon various professionals to see if it is possible to make some changes to the Elite Player Performance Plan. This ruling looks to be killing a lot of lower-level clubs. The main reason for this is because Academy Players are not actually protected until they reach the age of 16. At this point, they can then receive a full and professional contract. The Grecians have seen a lot of youngsters opt for bigger clubs after they leave the Academy but when they do, they receive absolutely no financial compensation. The overall aim of the...
