HISTORY EXMOUTH TOWN FOOTBALL CLUB
Exmouth Town Football Club was formed in 1933, playing their home games on the Maer Cricket Field. They moved to their current home at Southern Road in 1964.
After many successful seasons in the Devon and Exeter League they joined the Western League in 1973. They were promoted to the Premier Division after finishing Runners-Up of Division One in1981-82 and won the Premier Division in 1983-84 and again in 1985-86. Other Western League honours include League Cup winners 1989-90, Premier Division Runners-Up (twice) and the Sportsman Trophy (twice).
Cup success include winning the St Lukes Challenge Cup (three times),Devon Senior Cup, Devon Premier Cup (twice)and in 1984-85 they reached the Semi- Final of the F.A.Vase, narrowly losing to Fleetwood Town by the odd goal over the two games. During this period the Club installed floodlights and hosted many matches against Football League sides.On the 28 July 1987 they recorded their highest home attendance of 2,395for a match against Liverpool.
The success of the Eighties was, unfortunately, not repeated during the nineties and the Club was relegated after the 1993-94 season. They gained promotion back to the Premier Division for the 2003-04 season but regrettably had to withdraw from the Western League during 2005.
On the 1st August 2006 the Club reformed as Exmouth Town (2006) AFC, playing in the Devon and Exeter League. At the end of the season they were promoted into Division One (East) of the newly formed South West Peninsula League. Season 2012/13 was our most successful one for many a year.
