Exeter City was chosen to represent the English Football Association for the 1914...

ECFC forced to borrow from PFA

Exeter City Football Club statement:

"As we are all aware, Exeter City AFC Ltd is not owned and funded by any one individual and this means that finances are always stretched and 2013/14 was no different.

"However, we have also been adversely affected by match attendances being below expectations and a lower than anticipated uptake of season ticket renewals so the finances in the close season have been under pressure.

"As a result, the Club received a short-term, temporary loan from the PFA on Monday 2nd June."

Local newspaper The News in Portsmouth has reported that the Grecians boss has been interviewed for the position left vacant by former manager Guy Whittingham’s sacking.
