Exeter Under-18s win league title

15 April 2014

Academy side crowned South West champions

We are delighted to announce that Exeter City’s under-18s have been crowned league champions of the Youth Alliance South West division.

The news follows the ruling of Hereford United’s expulsion from the competition following a persistent breach of Rule 6.2; all of the Bulls’ records have been expunged.  The final league table sees Exeter sitting on top of the pile, ahead of Bristol Rovers on goal difference.

Exeter also finished as top goal-scorers in the division with 40 goals across their 16 games, and netted five times on four occasions – the last game of the season on Saturday 12th April saw Ollie Watkins grab a hat-trick in a 5-1 win away at Newport.  On Monday the forward was offered a professional contract with City, along with defender Connor Riley-Lowe and midfielder Jason Pope who also finish their apprenticeships this summer.

The under-18s will be presented to the crowd at half-time at Exeter City’s final home game of the 2013/14 season against Scunthorpe United.  We invite all fans to come and show their appreciation of this fantastic achievement.
