💬 "The stewards and supporters are really helpful when I need help."

Shirley Holding on supporting the Grecians ahead of our women's and girls' dedicated match on Saturday

27 March 2019

Exeter City’s match against Mansfield Town on Saturday, March 30, is our club’s designated One Game, One Community match.

To mark the day, the club will be celebrating the positive impact women and girls have on football at our club by hosting a day dedicated to them.

Shirley Holding has been supporting City for more than 30 years. Read about her experiences following the Grecians below:

I have been supporting City for 32 years and my first game was home to Torquay United on Boxing Day 1986.

I am, 81, and the love of City has been passed on to me by my two sons who have been going for 30 plus years each and still go.

My favourite footballing memory was Dean Moxey scoring that long-range effort against Doncaster in the FA Cup then going up to watch City at Manchester United and seeing them draw.

The language of the supporters has got much better over the years and there has been an improvement in atmosphere and willingness to help the elderly. The stewards and supporters are really helpful when I need help and there is less trouble these days compared with 10 or 20 years ago.
