The Lord Mayor of Exeter and the Leader of the City Council will once again be taking their place in the ground – as life-size cut-outs - as Exeter take on Northampton Town in the League Two Play-off Final.

The game is being played behind closed doors at the national stadium because of COVID-19 restrictions but nearly 1,800 Grecians will be in the famous ground as life-size cut-outs.

After just 54 seconds the Grecians, rather unfortunately, found themselves behind as Northampton’s Oliver latched onto a lofted ball over the top of the back three and half-volleyed past Lewis Ward into the top corner...
