Thousands of people have lined the centre of Exeter to congratulate the city’s football club on their promotion winning season.
The team finished as League Two runners-up to ensure promotion to League One – the third tier of English football – for the first time since 2012.
On Monday evening [9 May], an open top bus parade was greeted with a sea of red and white as the players and staff slowly made their way from their ground, St James Park, to the historic Guildhall on the High Street.
A giant new electronic screen at Exeter City Football Club’s ground, St James Park, has finally made its debut.
The club was given permission for the 29 x 17-feet (8.64 x 5.12 metre) LED screen by the city council around the start of the season last August, but delays meant fans had to wait until Saturday to see it in action for the first time.
It is situated behind the St James Road away end, nearest the recently built Stagecoach Adam Stansfield Stand, and will include pre-match videos, team news, the attendance...
Exeter City Council and Exeter City Football Club (ECFC) have won a national recycling award for their innovative scheme, Cans 4 City, which encourages Exeter football fans to recycle used drink cans while also raising money for charity.
The team behind Cans 4 City were presented with a Green Can Award by not-for-profit Every Can Counts in recognition of their outstanding recycling efforts.
The prize-giving took place during half-time in Saturday’s match against Hartlepool United, with over 5000 fans in attendance.
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 City has successfully rehomed around 3,300 shares following a recent drive to find missing shareholders.
Over recent months, volunteers at the club have worked to find people - or relatives of those - who had bought £1 shares in the club, which had been issued a number of times to raise capital.
Most people acquired them because they were fans and wanted to support the club, and as such were primarily of sentimental value. The earliest shares dated back to the 1930s and had been passed down through people’s families.
Exeter City Football Club’s Grecian Archive has been gathering ‘memories for the future’ with the help of the University of Exeter.
Researchers at the University of Exeter are asking ‘what is the heritage of now?’ to ensure that current events and items are correctly documented and preserved for people to look back on in the future.
Gabriella Giannachi, Professor in Performance and New Media, initially led the creation of the archive to catalogue historic items and try trace their history. Now, she is using those historic documents to engage fans with the history of the...

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.
