All you need to know about The 1931 Fund - a group of Exeter City supporters who help pay the wages of a member of the first team squad

10 August 2020

Exeter City’s 1931 Fund is appealing for new members.

The 1931 Fund is a group of around 60 Exeter City supporters who all donate £19 a month to help pay towards an extra member of the first team squad.

The fund is named after Exeter City’s famous FA Cup run from that year and has helped fund the wages of players like James Norwood, Graham Cummins, Pierce Sweeney and Jack Sparkes, and to date has donated £140,000 to the club since The Fund’s launch in 2010.

Every player who has had their wages paid because of the donations of the 1931 Fund has worn the number 31 shirt.

The player has not yet be chosen for this season but fund organiser Alan Crockford is keen to hear from any City fan who would like to support their cause.

"We want to hear from any City fans who can spare £19 a month to help us add an extra player to Matt Taylor's squad,” he said.

"We're only £10,000 away from raising £150,000 for ECFC Number 31s since the scheme started, and with just a few new members on board, we'd again be able to promise £15,000 for the season ahead.

"So many supporters do so much for Exeter City, and this is just another way for 60 or 70 of us to play a part in helping the club."
