Updating matters on behalf of the club, is Martin Cook, who says: “We have had some great support from local businesses with this project.

“The latest business to get involved with this particular project – one of many on-going at the ground, are The Devon Fencing Centre, who are based at the Old Sawmills at Colyton Raleigh.

“With the Exmouth Town Supporters group Muff Town Casuals taking on all the labour for the project, this really is a seriously United effort on behalf of Town!”

Martin continued: “The fencing Centre are already a partner of ETFC as they assisted the club by generously supplying gates to the players car park last season.
