  1. We have Seating for 100 at Town . We have two seated stands , one old one the Bill Ress Stand and a newer type stand (Which for some unknown reason was built to far back from the pitch! When we have bigger crowds its difficult to stop people standing in front of this stand . The picture below is the Bill Ress stand ,
  2. The Town itself is like lots of places before the Virus struck, shops emptying and Charity shops thriving . We are lucky to have the glorious sea front. The Football Club is on a resurgence over the last couple of years ,We have gone from only two mens teams and one youth team to Three mens teams and seven youth teams, Support through the gates has probably tripled . There is a lot of work to be done off the pitch to go higher ,but This is work in progress. All good . Utt
  3. So guys for a bit of fun we did a promo for our Supporters Website in the form of a video. You may recognize some of the grounds . I m not an expert in these things but I hope you enjoy . UTT
  4. Cheers, to be honest the ground being near the town can cause a few issues, but theirs plenty of room in the car park ,we dont have marked spaces or anyone in a high vis ,so it can get a bit chaotic for parking when we have bigger crowds . We always enjoy entertaining away supporters and having a beer with them ,its what its all about.
  5. I know . Muff town came from a name people from up north (Exeter) gave Exmouth on a day or night out ,ie going down the Muff ! It just stuck with the supporters ,just a nick name . To be fair we do have a number of supporters who now come to watch games from Exeter and we do get extra supporters when City are away. We have used or links with Exeter City as well, to advertise fixtures as well . All good really. UTT
  6. Heres a look at the new website from the Exmouth Town Supporters group , it is not the finished article ,but just shows how our supporters are trying to back the football club. The supporters group are a separate entity whose aims are to back the Football Club. it can be found on .https://mufftowncasuals.online/
  7. Yep Town will have a big say in it as well. We have Parkway at Home ,Bradford Home and Away and Tavvy Away . I think Parkway will win it ,but could be interesting for the rest . Bradford and Tavvy will battle it out for 2nd and Third . Town should be around the 4th place which we would have been well pleased with at the beginning of the season. UTT
  8. Exmouth Town 7 Chipping Sodbury 1 So I missed the 4-0 stuffing at Shepton Mallet in midweek where Town you would say had a full strength side out, minus the players out Injured. So Saturday with 3 of those players out Chipping Sodbury were probably a good game to have . Chippings side was a very young team and Town brushed them a side early . Goals from Denny , Steer , Harris and a bizarre OG had town 4 up at Half Time. It was similar in the second half with goals from Shipton , Denny, Harris and Sub Billingsly . Chipping did pull one back at 6 nil . So this was the most one-sided game ive seen this season. It could have been 10 . Town now move into very busy period like everyone else. Town play away at Willand on Wednesday in the Devon Bowl , then have Brislington Saturday and then Parkway on the Monday both at home. (To be honest If we keep having the rain If we play Saturday at home it will be amazing if the pitch would be fit for the Monday !) Only time will tell. Attendance Saturday 194 another decent crowd .UTT
  9. Exmouth Town 2 Wellington 0 Another comprehensive win at Southern Road see Town stumble back into the Top 3. Town really should have won this game by 5 or 6. The Wellington keeper made 3 one on One saves. Town opened the scoring mid way through the first half when a Jamie Durraine header beat the keeper. HT 1-0 The second half was one way traffic with chance after chance being missed. The Town faithful were beginning to wonder If Wellington would actually trouble the Town keeper Robbie Powell and maybe snatch something. With six minutes to go Town were down to 10 men when Jordan Harris was sin binned for god knows what? Fortunately in the 5 minutes of injury time Ben Steer popped up with a classy finish to make sure of the points. FT 2-0 A decent 251 crowd ,which was boosted by a bring a kid day ,there must have been over 40 under 16`s with families and a few Tavvy Fans who came as there game was off. All good Stuff. Next Up Willand away in the Devon Bowl .UTT
  10. Hallen 4 Exmouth Town 1 Another disappointing game and a bad week for Town. After the 3-1 defeat at Bridgwater in Mid week Town traveled to Hallen for what we knew would be a tough game. Town have had a real problem with players out over the few weeks through Injury. Town started the game brightly with the wind behind them and Hallen keeper made a couple of saves, one from Ben Steer when he was a couple of feet out in front of goal ,but couldn`t sort his feet out to bury it. HT 0-0 The second half Town started well but a fifteen minute spell conceded four times ALL to defensive errors . The young lad in Goal dropped a cross for the first then had a nightmare time of it,which included the 3 rd goal when he was lobbed from 40 yards. So at Four nil down Jordan Harris finished well to make it 4-1 and Town had a decent last 10 minutes causing the Hallen keeper to make a few more decent saves. As I said, not a great day for the club ,but we are in a division higher than last year and doing ok. The Attendance was 117 including 45 from Town, Next up Cribbs at home on Wednesday. UTT
  11. Roman Glass St George 3 Exmouth Town 2 A very disappointing result in Bristol our second defeat on a 3 g pitch this season. It started so brightly with Aarron Denny opening the scoring in the first Minute with a well worked goal . Then Jordan Harris had a fine finish from 18 yards in the 10 th Minute. Town could have a third five minutes later when the keeper made a smart save from Denny. It then started to go all wrong. Glass were strong going forward and played the pitch well. An unusual slip from Towns best player this season Tom Gardener let the striker to coolly finish from the edge of the box 1-2, then 10 minutes later a cross from the left found an unmarked striker to nod (well neck home from 6 yards) . Then 10 minutes before half time a Glass midfielder stormed through and let fly from 25 yards giving the keeper no chance. 3 -2 HT The second half was a bitty affair ,Town really struggling to put anything together and Roman Glass looking to lose as many minutes and crowd the referee at every opportunity. Not a great spectacle to watch,but then its not unsurprising . Town were awarded a pen 15 minutes from Time ,but Jordan Harris smashed it straight a grateful Keeper . That just about summed the game up. For Town ,we are entering a difficult period ,They have lost two decent keepers to injury , and last week a Bridgwater horror tackle ended Karl Rickards Season . They have lost Adam Bilcock to travelling , plus other players are struggling with Injuries. So no excuses here, but it will be interesting to see how we bounce back this week. We have a tough Les Phillips Cup game at Bridgwater on Tuesday, then another tough away day at Hallen Saturday where we have sold out a supporters coach UTT.
  12. Correct ,shes had to put up with it for 30 odd years mate.
  13. So got back from South Africa at 1pm in time to watch a great game of Football !!! Exmouth Town 0 Bridgewater 0 yes nil nil ! Plenty of chances for Town and Bridgeys keeper working over time . Town had 4 chances in the first half which the keeper just wasnt going to let in. The second half was a battle ,which the match officials basically ruined . They were just poor ,which has not been the case this season so far in the Western League. Town again had a few chances ,but the keeper had a great game and wouldnt be beaten. Bridgwater had grown in confidence towards the end and peppered Town with set plays and long throws . So yep nil nil ,but two decent teams and a proper game.Not sure if this was two points lost or a decent point in the end. Back to the ref ,There were a number of bookings for silly things,but when the Bridgwater midfielder basically cut Karl Rickard in two with a mugging of a challenge, which will probably see him out for months, the ref lost control of numerous decisions for both teams!!! This wasn`t apart from one challenge ,a dirty game, but there must have been 6 or 7 bookings. Im normally supportive of match officials but it was difficult to be so today. As for the Attendance 232 a decent crowd(with City at home) ,with the best away following so far this season, around 50 who really backed Bridgwater. Next up Roman Glass Away next Saturday UTT From the Indy lol
  14. Exmouth Town 2 Roman Glass St George 1 Town should have been out of sight after 30 minutes here ,but it wasn`t too be . Town took the lead after 25 minutes when Jamie Richards hit a free kick around the one man wall from about 30 yards and the keeper dived full length to see the ball bounce over him! Town had a few chances before that but just didn`t put them away . After 33 minutes Keeper Robbie Powell was carried off with an ankle injury and taken to hospital which is a worry and Dave Rowe the Town Full back took over in goal , a bigger worry!!!! After 44 minutes another shot from Jamie Richards was parried by the hapless keeper into the path of Jordan Harris who thumped the ball into the net . Just on the stoke of half a Jimmy Hinds surging run was ended by a terrible challenge from a Roman Glass player . In the scrummage of afters, the player was booked and another sent off for trying to head but Towns skipper Jamie Duraine . In the mean time the Roman Glass bench decided they wanted to join in , seeing a sub red carded and one of the Roman Glass Officials sent off . Unbelievable really . HT Town 2 Glass 0 In the second half Roman Glass were completely fired up and the Manager had decided route one was the way to go ! In all fairness he was right. They had a breeze behind them and Dave Rowe is not a goalkeeper . It wasn`t pretty but it was effective and you couldn't tell who had the extra man. Dave Rowe made a great save after 55 mins when he was left one on one but saved with his feet. Roman did get the ball in the net after about 60 minutes from a great ball in ,that was headed past Rowe. The next 30 minutes was a nervy affair with Roman Glass pumping the ball long trying to breach the Town defense. All credit to Towns back 5 they shut them out to secure a tough win. It looks as though Powell will be out for over a month and Chris Wright the other Town keeper is out injured as well . Kevin Hill will need to get a keeper in quickly, as Town now face Bridgwater on Tuesday in the Les Phillips Cup . FYI No reports from me for a couple of weeks as a few of us are off to Port Elizabeth to watch the Cricket . UTT
