The Fresha Devon and Exeter League press officer Collin Goodwin is hoping clubs or local soccer followers out there can help complete their archive by donating old copies of their league handbooks.

The league are missing the Exeter and District Football League handbooks for the years 1961/62, 1958/59, 1950/51 and 1935/36.

If anyone holds these copies, the league officers are keen to know if they would they consider selling or letting the league add them to their collection or maybe allow them to be photocopied.

The Devon and Exeter League are also hoping to obtain copies of any East Devon Victory League handbooks from the 1920/1930 era and also East Devon Football League handbooks from pre World War One, (ie up to the year 1914).

Goodwin, is urging soccer anoraks like himself to delve into their attics, garages and libraries. If successful, please contact him on 07748 183370 or email
