Success for our sports teams
OK, sport isn't my thing exactly. But it would be wrong not to congratulate Exeter City on getting back into the Football League as a result of their 1-0 victory over Cambridge at Wembley yesterday. By all accounts 'The Grecians' were good value for their win. This is after just five seasons in the 'Conference' and following their near miss in getting promotion last year. Commiserations to Torquay United who have had a good season but failed to beat Exeter in the two leg play-off. Plymouth Argyle performed creditably in the Championship finishing 10th after the turbulence of losing their then manager and a number of key players earlier in the season. I have even less interest in rugby than soccer but do know that both the Cornish and Devon sides had wins in their respective competitions this weekend and hence are both destined to go to the finals at Twickenham. So well done to both of them.
