Local rivals go head-to-head

I'm looking forward to the Blue Square Premier semi-final play off at St James' Park (pictured) tonight, where Exeter City take on local rivals Torquay - headed up by former player and assistant manager Paul Buckle, and with three ex-Grecians on board. That'll add some spice. There should be over 8,000 there, with another packed house due at Plainmoor on Bank Holiday Monday. I have a ticket for that one, too. Everyone is hoping that Exeter can make it back to Wembley again, and this time finish off the job in order to reclaim a Football League place. But first there's the Gulls. It should be an absorbing contest. Exeter can play flowing football when they're on song, and Torquay tend to push the long ball down the middle. There's not much local election fever here, but a good deal of football anticipation.
