City's under-23s manager looks ahead to Monday night's Devon St Luke's Challenge Cup final with Plymouth Parkway

24 April 2019

Exeter City will face Plymouth Parkway in the final of the Edenvale Turf Devon St Luke's Challenge Cup final on Monday.

The game, which will be played at Coach Road, Newton Abbott, will kick-off at 7.30pm. 

Plymouth Parkway will provide a stern test for City's youngsters as they are the current holders and are battling for the league title in the Western League Premier Division. However, it is a test that manager Dan Green says the players are relishing.

"Games like this are a great occasion for our young players and a chance for them to learn and develop playing in front of what I hope will be a good-sized crowd," he said.  

"The Devon St Luke’s Challenge Cup provides an experience for our young players that helps equip them ready to compete for a place in the Exeter City first team squad.

"They have overcome some tough tests already in this competition, beating both Tiverton Town and Buckland Athletic on penalties before battling back from a goal down away at Exmouth in the semi-final.

"We will approach the game with the same attitude and application shown in those matches to ensure we give ourselves every opportunity of a positive performance and result."

Admission prices for the game are as follows:

  • Adults: £7
  • Concessions: £4
  • Family ticket: £18 (two adults and two children)
