Join the great Exeter City missing player photo drive

Help us find missing player and squad photos

6 March 2018

The Exeter City History Group needs your help!

The group is really proud of the comprehensive A-Z record of Grecian players which can be seen on the Grecian Archive website, but there are still gaps to be filled.

The Archive currently has photos and some film for 1136 of the 1265 players that are known to have turned out for City. That means there are still 129 missing photos. This is where fans, families and others with an interest can help.

Many of these missing players are from our early seasons and could well be as yet unidentified in old team photos. There are also 11 seasons for which we don't have a squad photo.

Paul Farley, chair of the History group said: "We would love to have a photo of every player and team photo from every season.

"We have been humbled by the amount of information people have shared with us already. Now we would like one big push to see if we can fill the gaps and so leave a legacy for future generations to have access to".

The list of players for whom we have yet to identify a photo are set out below. The missing team photo seasons are also listed.

If you can help at all please contact the Exeter City History Group at historygroup@exetercityfc.co.uk or via club reception.
