Exeter City’s under-18 side came from two goals down to earn an excellent 2-2 draw against their counterparts from Man City.

548 fans were in St James Park to witness a great fightback and a thoroughly entertaining spectacle, which will have alerted many to the talent in the City Academy.

The visitors were a goal up at the interval as Connor Riley-Lowe was unlucky to deflect a corner into his own net.  Dom McHale doubled the lead in the second half with a neat finish from a tight angle.
