Exeter City to Play Bath City in Pre-Season Friendly


We are pleased to announce that Exeter City will play a pre-season friendly against Bath City on Friday 14th July at 7.30pm. Bath City recently became supporter owned so this will see one of the oldest Trust owned clubs playing the newest.

The match will be played for the Brian Lomax SD Cup, which will be presented in honour of Brian Lomax, considered the ‘father’ of the Supporter ownership model.

Elaine Davies of Exeter City Supporters Trust said “We hope that as many Exeter City Supporters as possible will be able to make the journey to Twerton Park on July 14th  to support our team as they prepare for the 2017- 18 season , but also to support Bath City, the latest club to adopt the Supporter ownership model. Supporters Direct say we’re one of the oldest Supporter owned clubs, let’s prove we’re also one of the loudest! UTC!”

At half-time, it is hoped to have a penalty shoot-out competition between supporters of the two clubs so we hope you can get yourself along and be part of the fun. The East Devon Grecians intend to run a coach at £10 a head if you would like organised travel.

The Brian Lomax SD Cup is an annual invitational competition organised by Supporters Direct (SD) and held between community-owned football clubs to celebrate the role fans play in owning and supporting their own football clubs.

Tickets for the match can be purchased on the turnstiles at Twerton Park.
