📝 Club saddened by the news of Stanley Carter's passing

1 July 2019

Exeter City and Exeter City Supporters' Trust were saddened to learn of the news that former player Stanley Carter has died at the age of 90.

Defender Stanley was on the books at St James Park as an amateur since August 1948 and played for the Exeter City reserve side in the Southern League, signing part-time professional forms in November 1949.

He was described as having made a series of useful performances for the second team and that had stamped him as being a player of undoubted promise.

Carter had to wait until April 1951 for his Football League debut as he took his place in the Exeter City side that lost 2-0 at Port Vale.

Our thoughts are with the friends and family of Stanley at this sad time. 

Forever a Grecian.
