ΞΕΡΑΤΕ ΟΤΙ ΤΟ NICKNAME ΤΗΣ ΑΓΓΛΙΚΗΣ EXETER CITY, ΠΟΥ ΑΓΩΝΙΖΕΤΑΙ ΣΤΗΝ LEAGUE TWO, EINAI "GRECIANS" !!!
In 1904 Exeter United disbanded and St. Sidwell's United FC (previously St. Sidwell's Wesleyans and St. Sidwell's Old Boys) took over the former club's ground at Bradford's Field. The new club was named Exeter City. Inhabitants of St Sidwell's parish had been known locally as "Greeks" for at least 300 years according to "Southey's Commonplace Book" published 1669. A century later Andrew Brice suggested in "The Mobiad" (published 1770) that this was a reference to the classical Trojan wars with the Greeks (who lived outside the walls of Troy as the citizens St Sidwell lived outside the boundaries of Exeter). Exeter City became known as "The Grecians."
