August 10th 2014, 3pm Steve Ellis (Exeter City fan)
Why were you looking forward to going
to this ground?
This is a new ground for me and it was
the season opener.
2. How easy was your journey?
The journey was straight forward,
travelling up on the supporters coach

3. What did you do before the game?
On arrival at the ground some
supporters opted for the clubhouse, we
took a 10minute walk to the Railway
Inn, in station road. This pub was
away supporter friendly with a good
mix of home and away fans. Pints were
priced from £2.50, food on the menu
was all listed at set prices starting
from £2.50. On returning to the ground
I picked up the match day programme
4. First impressions on seeing the
Away fans are housed in the North
stand at one end of the ground,
opposite is the quarry lane stand
which almost mirrors the north stand,
then there is the Ian Greaves (west)
two tiered stand, all three offer good
views. The east, Bishop Street stand
is currently closed for redevelopment.
5. Comment on the game, atmosphere,
refreshments, stewards and toilets?
The game was played in good spirit
with both teams wanting to start the
season well, the match ending in a 0-0
draw. Atmosphere between the two sets
of supporters was good, the Exeter
fans paying tribute to the former
number 9 Adam Stansfield in the ninth
minute and home fans recognising this
and joining in. Refreshments all
seemed to be reasonably priced with
drinks starting at £1.50, hot food
from £2.50. Toilets are under the
stand and were clean and the stewards
were helpful and low key.

dropped us off and a straight forward
7. Summary of the day out?
A very good day out and the way we
played we still went home in good
