By Emma Febrey - DEBP

On 2nd August, Yvonne, Kathy and I visited Exeter City FC for the club's official 2010/11 photo call.  Before descending on the pitch to take part in the sponsor's photograph, we enjoyed a lunch in the Flybe suite, followed by viewing the club's official photograph from the stand. We then met Aaron Dawson, our newly signed player we are sponsoring for a quick chat and photograph.  Aaron has been playing football seriously since he was twelve and was a student at Exmouth Community College.
