Jim Wallace


Jim Wallace

Club stalwart Jim moved into Exmouth in the late 1970s and began his association with Exmouth Town FC in the early 1980s when he became a social member at the club. His main sport at that time was Tug of War where he represented the Lympstone TOW team.

Jim has had a wide breadth of experience within his working life. In the early days, he worked as an apprentice Electrical/Mechanical Maintenance Engineer at Exeter Airport, and later worked for C&S Electrical in Exmouth, followed by Howmet Misco Ltd in Exeter. He started working in the building industry in 1990 and carries on today working in the local area.

When the football club was relaunched as Exmouth Town AFC 2006, Jim served for a period of 10 years in the role of chairman of the social committee and vice chairman of the club committee. After recently accepting the role of chairman of the new supporters club, Jim is very pleased to have another chance to serve Exmouth Town FC, albeit in a different way to his previous involvement. He believes that with this group of hard working and dedicated football supporters on our committee, and the support of the Mufftown Casuals, we can improve the facilities at Exmouth Town FC and make this club a great sporting and social experience for the whole community.


Catherine Bailey

Vice-Chairwoman and Social Events Coordinator

Catherine Bailey

Cath was brought up in Exeter and lived there until meeting and marrying a submariner. At that time she moved to Plymouth. However, Cath didn’t remain a janner for long before moving to Exmouth in 1998, bringing up 3 girls and being a single mum for a long time.

Cath has worked as a carer for the last 10 years, which is a job she loves. In 2013 she met Tubby for whom, as we all know, football is life. Having met Tubby, Cath decided to come along to the football club and hasn’t looked back since. As she says, “It is one of the best decisions I have made as I’ve been able to make so many new friends.”. Cath is very happy to have joined the committee of the supporters club and is looking forward to helping out as much as she can.

Martin Cook


Martin Cook

During his working and social life, Martin has had the fortune of working with many different sorts of characters. His working life has led to a wide variety of jobs, from the Armed Forces to factory work, postman, and working at a holiday camp!! Socially, he feels blessed with friends, largely coming about through his love of playing sport, cricket and football to name just two.

Martin loves most sports and managed to play cricket until the ripe old age of 52. He coached and ran a youth section at a local cricket club for 6 years with the support of his wife, Lynn, and 2 sons, Liam and Eddie.

Currently, Martin gives the impression that he is “semi-retired”. However, he manages to fill his time with a little work during the summer and, of course, helping promote Exmouth Town Football Club, while seeking new career opportunities. Martin looks forward to helping our supporters club grow by spreading the word about OUR football Club throughout OUR Community. UTT!

Martin was honoured in 2019 in winning the first ever FlyBE and Exeter City Community Champion award for his work with Exmouth Town FC. He believes the award represented not only success for himself, but also for the work done by the army of volunteer supporters of Exmouth Town FC.

Tony Snelgrove

Disability Access Officer

Tony Snelgrove

Tony has lived in Exeter throughout his life, and played football there from the age of 12 for local youth side, Rennes Utd. On moving up to senior football, he played for several Exeter-based teams including Willey’s Social Club, Pinhoe and Alphington, on Saturday’s, as well as several Sunday league teams. The most notable of which being The Valliant Soldier on Cowick Street where he enjoyed great success winning several cups and league titles. After finally hanging up his boots, Tony got involved with youth football and, along with a good friend, started Stoke Hill Juniors who have gone on to be one of the biggest junior teams in Exeter.

Tony has been an ardent Exeter City and Leeds Utd supporter for nearly 50 years, but was still drawn back to grassroots football and to Exmouth Town where he once played on a tour to Germany which provided very fond memories.

Having left the printing industry, Tony re-trained and now has an NVQ level 3 in Health and Social Care, looking after people with various disabilities. For the past 6 years, Tony has worked as a private Enabler with young guys with Down Syndrome and a learning disability. Tony had the great idea of introducing one of his disabled guys to Exmouth Town Football Club with great success. Everyone involved at the club have welcomed this young man with open arms and he now feels part of this amazing community-based local football club.

Tony was approached by members of the supporters group and asked if he would like to get involved to improve disabled access and facilities at the football club. He has now taken on the role of Disability Access Officer. He feels it’s an honour to be involved and will endeavour to improve the areas in and around the ground. This will, innevitably, take time but improvements will take shape in the near future. UTT!

Mark Lever

Commercial Officer

Mark Lever

Mark is known amongst supporters as “The Real Mark Lever” because his son, also Mark Lever, is an Exmouth Town player. He has a background in sales and has been co-opted onto the committee to assist with merchandising and other matters. Hence, the majority of the current MTC merchandise, including our polos, hoodies, sweatshirts, beanies (see Mark modelling said beanie) and mugs are sourced by Mark. As a supporters club, we feel very lucky to have him on board to help us raise funds for our much needed projects at Exmouth Town FC. You’ll often see Mark, and Duncan, serving behind our pop-up shop on matchdays.

Adrian Sansom

Supporters Liaison Officer

Adrian “Sam” Sansom

Sensible Sam is the latest recruit to the ETSC committee and brings a wealth of experience to the role. His varied career has included barman, gravedigger, Royal Mail employee, and landlord of the Exmouth Arms pub (with his long suffering wife, Irene). Now, Sam runs his own business as APS Fencing and Gardens and can often be seen working in the local area.

Sam loves most sports, particularly football and cricket, and has been a big follower of Exeter City, England and, of course, Exmouth Town. Now a committed non-league badger and ground hopper, Sam will take every opportunity to watch, not only Exmouth Town, but any local football when Town aren’t playing. He also has an unbelievable memory for sports trivia and can often be heard recounting his many stories in the bar with a laugh that can rock the very foundations. Sam has also become a great quizmaster and has run a number of quizzes at the club.

Over the recent season, Sam has built up a great knowledge of the ground grading requirements for local football clubs and has organised minibuses for away travel.
