Next Tuesday 16 May marks the 20th Anniversary of Russell and Lewis being ousted and an interim Trust Board instituted by Ivor..

Pat yourselves on the back, every one of You, who then and over the 20 years since have given so much....and be proud of the success and dignity you give the city of Exeter.

Of course we should never forget your outstanding efforts in those early days. You always were modest and not one for the limelight but I'm sure Dr Dave's new book will give you due credit I hope

Here and there
A very timely and pertinent reminder Hern! Nowadays, there are those that get frustrated with our model and would lobby for 'outside investment', and/or spending beyond our means. To a degree I understand that but I do feel that the supporter ownership 'experiment' has not yet been fully tested and, personally, I believe there is yet more to come. Some will disagree, I know, but our model is "slow burn" and not a fire that burns out quickly.

Everything about our club today makes me proud and, after 57 years of visiting SJP, there were bygone times when I didn't always feel like that.

Fair play and good luck to Dorking - hope they don't need Captain Scarlet's help further down the line. :cool:

Might be a good idea if you researched the original Dorking FC club (the oldest football club in Surrey) which was manoeuvred into oblivion by Mr White...

Hopefully they will not name a stand after those involved in those early Trust days because further down the line those same people might want to quietly forget you and put your name where nobody can see it and never really explain why……..
