Exeter City Return To Football League

Devon now has two clubs in the Football League again. Exeter City joined Plymouth Argyle as the county's representatives in the top four divisions after the team's 1-0 win at Wembley against Cambridge United in the Conference Premier Play-off Final.

Exeter lost at the same stage last year to Morecambe, but this time around a goal from Rob Edwards was enough to see the Grecians regain Football League status. Torquay United, Devon's other big club remain in the Conference after losing 5-3 to Exeter in the Conference play-off semi-finals.

Exeter were relegated to the Conference in 2003 after playing in the Football League from 1920, exclusively in the lower divisions. The team's best results were an amazing FA Cup run in the 1980-81 season when they reached the quarter finals inspired by the goals of Grecians' legend Tony Kellow.

Exeter City play their home games at the 9,000 capacity St. James Park and are owned by a supporters' trust.
