Senior Reds to hold an afternoon with Alan Banks tomorrow

All supporters welcome to attend.

23 January 2018

The Senior Reds are hosting an afternoon with City legend Alan Banks on Wednesday, January 24, with all fans welcome.

The event takes place in the Centre Spot bar at 1.30pm for a 2pm start and marks six years since the group was formed.

Alan Banks is one of the top Exeter City goal scorers,  He played for Liverpool, Cambridge City, Exeter City, Plymouth Argyle and Poole Town. Exeter City paid out what was then a club record fee to obtain his transfer in November 1963. He ended his first season at St James's Park scoring 18 goals and helping the Grecians to win promotion.

Alan was the leading goalscorer for Exeter on four occasions. He was City's player of the Year in 1968-69 and his 1970-71 season proved to be the best one in terms of goals for City as he scored 21 times in the league. He broke the individual scoring record for City in February 1971 when he scored his 90th Grecians' goal for which he was presented, on behalf of the club, with a silver salver by the Mayor of Exeter.

The bar will not be open, but there will be refreshments on offer. This meeting is open to all, and we hope as many will attend as possible.

Friends and fellow supporters welcome. Come along and enjoy an afternoon of memories and nostalgia.
