📝 Match Preview: Tiverton Town (A)

All you need to know ahead of our pre-season fixture

9 July 2021

Exeter City's second pre-season match kicks off this evening as we make the short trip to Tiverton Town, marking Tiverton's Scott Rogers' testimonial.

Matt Taylor has already confirmed that the game will be played in similar fashion to Tuesday night at Weston-super-Mare, where two separate XI's took to the field in each half. 

Last August's match at Tiverton saw a 2-1 win for City in a match watched by 300 supporters, the first time fans had watched the Grecians play since the outbreak of the pandemic the previous March.

How to Follow

Due to fans being able to attend the match there will not be a live stream, so that Tiverton get the best opportunity to get some well needed revenue after not being open for so long.

You can however follow the match on the clubs social media channels, and an interview with Matt Taylor and a player will follow the match and a SJP 360 video in the coming days.
