Fred Whitlow made his debut today back in 1931. One of City's greatest players.
Was at Cardiff after leaving us, but not for long. Normal goalscoring service was resumed when he moved on to Barry Town.

There's a Fred thread on the Charlton website............

Is he the only player to have scored six in one match for City (in a Div 3 South Cup match against, I think, Crystal Palace, I believe the match finished 11-6)?
24 January 1934, Exeter 11 C Palace 6.
Whitlow 6, Hurst 2, Wrightson 2, Scott, 2000.

Those goals come on top of the 62 League and FA Cup goals mentioned above.

Remembered about a big FA Cup win, checked.

3 October 1908, Exeter 14 Weymouth 0.
Bell 6, McGuigan 4, Copestake 2, Watson, Parnell, 5000.

Exeter's very first FA Cup match.

In RaWZ we trust....Amen.
This was the game shortly after Diana died when City were top of the table and hundreds of City fans were locked out of the game.
The turnstiles on the away end were shut about 10 mins before KO,I & others quickly ran to the popular side & got in there before the old bill wised up & shut those turnstiles..About 40 of us managed to get in.

A few city fans were stood on the walls of the gardens of the houses behind the away end watching(before the covered away stand was built)

I can remember Neville getting sent off but not Macca. Are they sure? Just the whole concept of Macca getting sent seems wrong.
2 City players sent off!

They both played at Turf Moor the next week !

All I can recall of the game was a dour 0-0 where Carlisle shut up shop,who were managed by Clive Middlemass,Coopers former assistant at Bristol City.

There were even City fans standing on the garages behind the away end which were starting to sag dangerously before the police intervened and moved them on.

Apparently, I was too busy being born to attend!

Lost 2-0 :( Wragg for Mansfield on 65 and 89 minutes. Glen Wilson in charge of Exeter, Raich Carter managing Mansfield. Attendance 5651. We finished the day in 20th place.

My mother's diary reports a) that I attended this match with my father b) that it was a very poor game!

Without access to a newspaper report I'm not going to be able to confirm.
My memory of it is also that only Nev's got sent off. Quite late on I think , out of frustration he just kicked out at someone in front of the old offices. Macca definitely didn't get marching orders.

My only joy is a cuddly toy.
On this day in 1985 we beat Argyle 2-0 at SJP in the Milk Cup to secure a 3-2 aggregate victory.

I've got the programme but can't scan it cos me printer's playing up, as all printers do.
