Also, why don't the U23s etc. find a non-gambling shirt sponsor?

The value would be trivial due to low crowds and a lack of television coverage.

Have we fielded an under 18 since we’ve had the sponsor?

Yes, Michael Olise last season and Dejan Tetek, Nahum Melvin-Lambert, and Lynford Sackey this season


Valid question then, how do the club get round that?


I would imagine because for the purposes of first team games the age of the player is irrelevant. Other sides are age specific and by design will include players to whom the no gambling rules apply. A young player in the first team is relatively rare so has to be an e caption to the rule else no club could ever have a gambling company as shirt sponsor - and loads do.

There's no commentary but there is a fox running up and down the far touchline (behind a fence).

Still one up.

Because Exeter have no fit goalkeepers.

Jokull conceded in the 4th minute (not at fault, just crap defending from those in front of him) but then kept a “clean sheet” as Exter drew 1-1 at Orient. Exeter are at home to Carlisle on Saturday at 1pm.

He didn't keep a clean sheet because he let one in.

Maybe it was just me?

Maybe I was misjudging the circumstances and situation?

but :|

Four (obviously) RFC academy/youth/u23s....or whatever they are referred to these days...in Morrisons this afternoon...aping around a bit, very loud, and not wearing facemasks (we assume that they are immune and/or excused because of their profession?).

Not that you'd want to be a snitch, but it might be worth dropping an email to the club, saying to remind the academy lads they are representing the club when out and about in their kit - at the very least they shouldn't be breaking the law. And no, there is zilch in the regulations that implies that footballers don't have to wear masks when they are out in public. If they had the kind of health conditions that excused them, they wouldn't be able to play football.
