Two of Exeter City’s Football in the Community coaches, Dan Leverton and Jack Gill, are preparing to run the London Marathon on Sunday - and while most people build up to the 26.2-mile distance in training, Dan and Jack have done things rather differently.
The last time they completed a distance run was in Princesshay in February, when they ran on a treadmill for 24 hours to raise money for the Meningitis Trust, a cause close to their hearts after the death of their friend and team-mate, Paul Cridland, seven years ago at the age of 18.
Following Exeter’s home defeat to Dagenham & Redbridge, manager Paul Tisdale lamented what has been a frustrating week for the Grecians.

Nigel Banks, the Trust Finance Officer, has decided to take a back seat after 10 years and intends to step down at the conclusion of this year’s AGM.

Initial time commitment can be flexible but for the Finance Officer it is likely to be on average 5 hours per week and more at busy times. In addition to bookkeeping skills, a current working knowledge of PAYE, Corporation tax and...
Exeter City have signed Reading youngster Lawson D’Ath on a Youth Loan deal.
The 20-year-old central midfielder will join up with the Exeter squad and, subject to clearance from the Football League, be eligible for Bradford City’s visit to St James Park on Saturday.
Travelling Grecians will have seen Lawson play once this season already – the midfielder scored against City on his loan debut with Cheltenham Town on October, as the Robins eventually ran out 3-0 winners.
If your child fancies themselves as the next Jamie Cureton, why not bring them down to Princesshay on Saturday 9 March, when Exeter City’s Football in the Community team will be running a Quick Feet skills competition - and they could win themselves a season ticket!

There are also special offers available on the day for all season ticket purchases for next season.
