With the Exeter City Supporters' Trust's recruitment drive in full swing, a number of the club's first-team players have committed themselves to the organisation.

Club captain Danny Coles, forwards Alan Gow and Jimmy Keohane, experienced midfielder Matt Oakley and Exeter-born Liam Sercombe have all signed up to the Trust, following in the footsteps of manager Paul Tisdale, who renewed his membership in November.

"The idea that 'we own our football club' is unique," Tisdale said. "It brings a collective group of people together that care for Exeter City, myself included.

"I would encourage all supporters to either join the Trust or renew their membership like myself, because this is a chance to become part of the clubs future and help the team achieve success on and off the field."

Trust officials are keen to remind people that, if they join the Trust before February 1, 2013, they will be entered into an exclusive draw with some fabulous prizes on offer.

The top prize is an invitation for two to attend a first-team training session at the Cat and Fiddle training ground, followed by lunch with the playing and coaching staff.

Other prizes include Trust T-shirts signed by one of Paul Tisdale, Alan Gow and Jimmy Keohane.

Existing members can also gain entry into the Trust's exclusive prize draw. Members wishing to enter must increase their current subscription by £24 per year (or £2 per month) and inform Trust membership secretary, Frank Sealey, that they wish to be entered into the draw. Supporters can email Frank at the address below.


Two young Exeter City players have extended their loan spells with clubs in the Blue Square Bet South.

Jake Gosling will stay at Dorchester Town until January 5, while Elliott Frear has had his deal with Salisbury City extended for another month.

Gosling, 19, has had a fantastic time with the Magpies and hit the headlines for notching the goal in their 1-0 FA Cup first-round win over Plymouth Argyle. He played the full 90 minutes in their second-round tie at Luton Town last Saturday, when the Dorset club were beaten 2-1 by Paul Buckle's men.

Dorchester, who are 11th in Blue Square Bet South and have games in hand on all of the teams above them in the table, are due to play nine games during December.
