Can't find any detail about this anywhere and, sadly, I'm now not able to attend. Anyone got more details...

    Devon Bowl (St Luke's Cup) 2017/8

    The draw has been made - in Torquay, I believe, rather than the EFL draw in Bangkok - for the St Luke's Cup.

    New Fivers

    Has anyone had one of the 'Churchill' fivers yet ? I was hoping that I might get one when I drew some money out this afternoon but sadly not. Then had a rather wild and weird idea that I could try drawing small amounts from several cash tills to increase my chances of getting one. If you have...

    Chris Anderson

    Who he ? Just been appointed as Coventry City's Managing Director. Author of The Numbers Game: Why Everything You Know About Football Is Wrong. So far, so irrelevant; however, the paragraph of the link below timed as 1507 reads: "In England, the club I’m closest to is Exeter City. I’m close to...

    When Saturday Comes Issue 337

    An article by a City fan in the latest When Saturday Comes, only seen the build up paragraph, not the full article. It's the Money For Nothing article. Nice use of 'sullied'.

    An Idea For Fore Street ?

    Could this be tried in Exeter ? Fore Street would be ideal, particularly if extended into New Bridge Street and then, erm, the river.

    Newton St Cyres Centenary

    The Devon FA's Newsletter for this month celebrates Newton St Cyres's centenary. In the picture towards the bottom of the page opposite a paragraph about the late 80s (the one with the team in red and white halves), there's a fresh faced youngster in the middle of the back row holding a...

    Suspicious Little Things

    Many moons past, when I was more cynical, I would have considered it a particularly bad omen for a City home game to fall on my birthday. Or if I'd mislaid my favourite bobble hat. Or put the right sock on before the left. However, it got me thinking about what little things can be considered...
