    I think that area is known as Cockwood. The pub there might be The Anchor, but I'm not sure. I used to go there on business, would you believe?

    It was either the Anchor Inn or the Ship Inn, The Anchor faces the harbour whereas the Ship is slightly to one side.

    I'm not sure which one of those Bert Hoyle ran. Whichever it was, I understand the demon drink got the better of him, but he came through it succesfully.

    He was a brilliant advert for those with alcohol problems and stayed "dry" for many many years. I remember him telling me how he would play a match at SJP and then go on a bender and wake up and find himself in Preston or somewhere. He would always help those with similar problems and was never too embarrassed to talk about it.

    "The Ship" rings a bell.

    Thanks CB I started it with a certain amount of trepidation as I was unsure what reaction I would get. Thankfully it seems to be going in the direction I was hoping.

    Hopefully it will Pete although I would be perfectly happy if the mods decided that it merited being included as one the forum threads along WOW etc under the “Exeter City FC” heading. As for the title I included “present” in the hope it would encourage people of all ages to contribute......fingers crossed.
