Finished Exeter 0 Northampton 4. We keep our local derbies for next season. Let's just hope that crowds will be allowed.

It must have been strange to play that game at an empty Wembley.

I can't see how Exeter is classed as a local derby when Walsall is quicker and easier to get to.

Good point, but I think of Exeter as West Country rivals.

Unless Yeovil come up, we'll be Exeter's nearest opposition though. They'll bring more then most (inc Walsall) too.

Surprisingly one sided final, Exeter once again failed to turn up whereas Northampton were right at it. Pleased for Steve Arnold, struggled a bit playing for us but seemed a nice bloke. Thought he commanded his box well.
