Fan Generosity Needed To Support The 1931 Fund

5 April 2016

A chance to do your bit for Exeter City

FOR THE final three home games of the season, you can help support the 1931 Fund, which in the last seven years has financed an additional member of the Exeter City squad.

1931 Fund organizer Alan Crockford is offering Exeter City supporters the option to purchase tickets for the Stagecoach Stand at £31, with the extra money going directly to the 1931 fund.

The Stagecoach Stand is one of the oldest in the league and is due to be demolished at the end of the season. This could be one of the final chances to experience a piece of footballing history, and support the future of Exeter City’s squad.

The 1931 Fund is run on behalf of the Supporters’ Trust by the Exeter Exiles and currently has around sixty-five members. The name and shirt number 31 was chosen because 1931 was the year of City’s greatest FA Cup run and record crowd of 20,984 at St James Park.

Since its inception in 2009, the 1931 Fund has raised over £70,000. It has paid for James Norwood, Callum McNish and Elliott Chamberlain to spend a total of five seasons with the club, as well as part-funding the signing of Graham Cummins. Most recently, the 1931 Fund supported the signing of forward Joel Grant for the 2015/16 season.

1931 Fund match tickets are available for the following home matches:

•    Northampton Town – Saturday 16th April, 3pm
•    Mansfield Town – Tuesday 19th April, 7.45pm
•    Morecambe – Saturday 30th April, 3pm

Tickets can be purchased online at tickets.ecfc.co.uk, by phone on 01392 411 243 or in-person by visiting reception at St James Park (Mon-Fri 8.30am-5.30pm).

The 1931 Fund is aiming to reach a target of £100,000 raised since it launched seven years ago. If you are interested in becoming a member, or finding out more, please contact the Exeter Exiles at www.exeterexiles.co.uk or by email on exiles@sky.com.
