NEXT UP Exeter City.

Manager: Paul Tisdale (pictured below). Position this time: 23rd in League I. Ground: St James' Park Nickname: The Grecians. Home kit: Red and white stripes.

Ground telephone: 01392 411 243 Fax number: 01392 413 959 What's it like for away fans: The St James' terrace at one end of the ground, houses 1,053 fans and is open to the elements. It may be advisable (especially if the weather is not great) to try and get one of the seats made available to away supporters in the old, but at least covered, Stagecoach Grandstand Where to drink: There is a Social Club at the ground, which admits away supporters. Otherwise, the ground is walkable from the city centre where there are plenty of pubs. Two recommended are the Duke Of York and the Amber Rooms in Sidwell Street. The Victoria'' on Victoria Road (follow Victoria Street from the back of the Grandstand) has also been mentioned as a good place to stop off. How to get there: Leave the M5 at Junction 30 and follow signs for Exeter city centre along Sidmouth Road (A379) and then onto Rydon Lane (A3015). Take the Sidmouth Road turn off (B3183) towards the city centre. Keep going towards the town centre as the road becomes Heavitree Road. On nearing the city centre take the fourth exit at the large roundabout onto Western Way. At the next roundabout take the second exit onto Old Tiverton Road, then turn left into St James Road for the ground. There is street parking, but quite away from the ground as there is a local residents scheme in operation. By train: The nearest train station to the ground is St James Park (local line). This is only a short walk away. Most fans will come into the mainline stations of Exeter St Davids or Exeter Central, from which you can either get a local train to St James Park or walk.
