📝 Match Preview: Morecambe (H)

5 May 2023

Exeter City's first season back in League One for ten years comes to an end on Sunday as Morecambe make the long trip to SJP.

It'll be a mid-table finish for the Grecians regardless of the outcome against the Shrimps, who need a win to have a chance of third tier survival, well within the City's target for the campaign. 

After six straight defeats in the league, Gary Caldwell's side will want to give the home supporters one final thing to cheer about before we all jet off on our summer holidays, with bad memories of that 6-0 loss at Ipswich last week quickly needing put to rest.

It won't be easy though, with Morecambe heading to Devon with an opportunity to retain their League One status. A month ago, Derek Adams' side looked doomed for the drop, but three consecutive wins have clawed them back to within a point of safety - though they will need to win and hope that MK Dons fail to win at Burton. A draw could also be enough, proving that MK Dons lose and Cambridge United fail to win at home to Forest Green. 

Gary Caldwell's Thoughts

"We want to finish the season on a high and give our supporters something to cheer about over the summer," Gary said.

"It's about finishing our first season in League One on a high so that next season we come back with the momentum of this game.

"We know Morecambe are in good form and they are playing the same way over the last few games - I'll be very surprised if they change that. But as ever when we're at home, it's about what we do, regardless of who we play. 

"If we play to our best, like we did against Barnsley, we can beat any team in this league at this stadium. It could be easy to take the last six games in isolation and be disappointed wioth the season, but when you look at it as a whole it's been brilliant."

Match Day Family Fun

Post-match signing, retro shirt day and Kids in Charge. What a busy Sunday for you ahead of your lunchtime kick-off!

It’s time for you to dig out your old City favourite kit for Retro Shirt day! On top of that it is a reduced Kids in Charge Day. Originally planned for the February half-term it was deferred to the Morecambe game in the expectation of a normalised attendance that would give staff the time to look after their shadows with the extra space needed.


We are grateful to staff and volunteers who give their time to host your youngster, especially when things remain at full tilt for them.

Finally, Super Sunday will end with the usual signing player picture sheet available. All the players will go around the stadium post match to sign your sheets. Please make sure you have a sharpie available! The signing sheets are available with a copy of the Grecian!

Match Reports

📝 Match Report: City 3 Morecambe 2

7 May 2023

A Jay Stansfield hat-trick ensured that Exeter City ended the Sky Bet League One season with a win, as they beat Morecambe 3-2 at St James Park.

The Grecians came alive in the second half, with the City striker ending his loan spell on the perfect note, as he fired City to a 14th placed finish in League One.

Gary Caldwell responded to last weekend’s defeat by making five changes to the starting line-up, with Jake Caprice, Harry Kite, Pierce Sweeney, Gary Woods and Josh Coley dropping out for Jonathan Grounds, Sam Nombe, Archie Collins, Jamal Blackman and Stansfield.

The visitors had the first chance of the game, as Dan Crowley picked the ball up outside the Grecian 18-yard box and took aim, but his shot was wide of Blackman’s goal.

Exeter struggled to get going in the early exchanges, with small mistakes costing them attacks against a pumped-up Morecambe side, who knew a result could see them secure League One safety.

Pedro Borges had the Grecians first shot on goal, as a Key corner was floated into the back post and into the young midfielder’s path, but his header was wide.

Corners seemed to be City’s best weapon in the first half, as Demetri Mitchell found Grounds who chested the ball into Will Aimson, and the captain volleyed over the bar.

The hosts put their best chance of the first half together with five minutes to go, as they put six passes together outside the Morecambe box, leading Borges to drive an effort just wide of Connor Ripley.

City got out of the blocks much faster in the second half, with Mitchell drilling the ball across goal, which caught the foot of Jacob Bedeau and forced Ripley into an uncomfortable save.

Exeter continued to cause the away side problems as Stansfield drove in from the right flank, but his shot was blocked by a Morecambe defender.


However, Stansfield was not to be denied a final Grecian goal, as Nombe found the striker in plenty of space, and he got free of his man before slotting home to put Exeter ahead.

It wouldn’t take long for Morecambe to level, as a long ball found its way into the Exeter box, and was met by Cole Stockton, who beat Blackman to the ball.

The game had come alive in the second half, as Nombe did excellently to keep the ball in, and squared it to an onrushing Key, but he could not keep his effort down.

Stansfield remained determined to end his City spell on the winning side, and he put City back in front as a Key shot was blocked into the path of the Fulham loanee, and he fired past Ripley.


The Grecians were not done there, as Stansfield met a Key cross, and placed the ball into the back of the net to secure his hat-trick and put Exeter further ahead, in what was a beautiful moment at St James Park.

Morecambe, who were clearly knocked by City’s third, forced a save from Blackman, as they shot from the edge of the box.

Cole Stockton could have pulled one back for the Shrimps, but his header from close range failed to find the target.

There was an extraordinary 14 minutes added onto the end of the game, as the away side made the most of it to pull a goal back, as Stockton scored his second to give his side a slight hope.


However, it was not enough for the visitors and City emerged victorious to end a successful return campaign on a high.

CITY: Blackman, Hartridge (Sweeney, 34), Mitchell (Sparkes, 63), Collins, Stansfield (Cox, 73), Nombe (Scott, 86), Key, Aimson, Chuake (Kite, 63), Grounds, Borges (Caprice, 73).
