Exeter City play a big part in the creation of the Cliffe Minstermen. It was on the long train journey down to Exeter that the concept of our group was born. Before this day we were chaps from Cliffe who had been watching York City anonamously for many years, and from this day hence forth we shall be known as the Cliffe Minstermen and anonamous no more.
The other connection with Exeter that we have is that one of our founding members who for this article has to remain anonamous, hates Exeter City with a passion. We are all grown ups on here and as fans we all have teams that we dislike or even hate. This one though is not one that you would expect a York fan to have. It goes back to a bad day at the office back in Febuary 2001 when we got lugged 3-0 at home by them. What got our man riled was their mascot giving it the big one to the fans in the Longhurst stand.
Its shows how bad we were that season that someone dressed like Brad Pitt in Troy gets one over on us!
