As 2019 draws to a close, here’s a look back on Exmouth Town’s year to date.

Exmouth began the year on a remarkable run of form that saw them undefeated until a Devon Bowl defeat at home to Exeter City on April 10. It took even longer for them to suffer a league defeat when they finally were defeated at Parkway on August 21.

In the second half of the 2018-19 season, there was only three occasions when Town did not win and they chalked up 15 wins in all competitions. During that time, the team went on a run of 12 consecutive wins stretching from January 26 to April 6.

It has been a similar story this season as Exmouth have won 19 of 25 games in all competitions this season.

Exmouth Town in 2019 have played their way through 43 matches and complete the year with three more (Saturday, December 21 at home to Parkway), which will mean they will have played 46 games in the calendar year.

Ahead of the Parkway meeting, of the 43 matches Town have played, 34 have been won, four drawn and just five lost.

The only defeats in the year for Town have been the defeat to Exeter City (1-2), an FA Vase tie at Tavistock (1-6), an FA Cup tie at Highworth Town (2-4) and league games at Parkway (0-1) and Keynsham (0-1).

In the 43 games so far Town have scored 114 goals and conceded 44. They have kept a total of 15 clean sheets in the 43 outings.

Indeed, it was a high scoring year for Town as they netted at least four goals on 14 occasions.

Jordan Harris leads the way on top of the goalscoring charts having scored 35 this year. Ace High and Aarron Denny make up the top three.
