City Staff And Supporters Play Skittles In Memory Of Angie Ellicott

10 March 2016

Angie was a St James Park regular

EXETER CITY staff and supporters have been enjoying skittles fun in memory of a much-loved member of the City family.

Angie Ellicott was a regular at St James Park for a number of years and was a vital part of the Exeter City Football Club community.

Angie and her family have been avid supporters of the Grecians for a number of years. Den (her husband) is one of the Monday volunteer team who work around St James Park, keeping everything ship-shape. Son Martin has regularly helped the club with its IT and works on the bottle bar on match days, whilst daughter Teresa has worked on the turnstiles here at St James Park.

Angie was able to help the club out by working in the accounts department, but she sadly passed away a few years ago.

A part from supporting the Grecians, Angie was also a keen skittles player and in her remembrance the club decided to start its own competition. The Angie Ellicott trophy was started three years ago and is seen as a way to bring all members of the football club together.

The competition had been won by the senior ExEC-100 Club for the last two years, but this season there have been some surprising results, with the Senior Reds having overcome them.

Elsewhere, the under-18s were too nimble for the walking football team, whilst operations/commerce were too strong for the Board of Directors.

In the final game of the first round, Football in the Community snatched defeat from the jaws of victory as they capitulated in the final leg. They were leading by eleven pins and needed only thirty-one for victory against the Maintenance Volunteers. It was the latter who managed to claim the enthralling encounter, and they are now to take on the Senior Reds in the semi-final.

The other game sees the academy/under-18s take on the might of operations/commerce.

The next round is due to be completed by 22nd April, with the final of the competition being played on May 3rd at 7pm.
