This is just one more of our teams that are now wearing the new club kit, which, eventually, all of our twenty teams will be wearing.

A special mention, and our many thanks, must also go to Exeter’s Crafty Cakes, who have sponsored the team’s track suits.

You can buy the club kit, track suits, hoodies, beanies and much more from our online shop.

The FA’s grassroots football survey

The FA has launched the most comprehensive survey of grassroots football it has ever undertaken.

Contributions are being sought from parents of youth players, players, coaches, referees as well as the staff and volunteers that form the 400,000-strong grassroots football workforce, and will give the fullest picture yet of the experiences and views of those involved in the national game.

If you’d like to have your say, and the chance to win tickets to see England play France at Wembley, you can read more about the survey on the FA website, or jump right in and take the survey.

The survey is open until Friday 30th October 2015, 11.59pm.

Children and young people’s worries in sport

The Football Association (FA) nominated the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC) through its Child Protection in Sport Unit (CPSU) to be the recipient of the UEFA Children’s Foundation charity award of 1 million Euros over three years.

Throughout the project the NSPCC will be hosting consultations with young people. This first report focussed on the worries young people in sport might have. 100 young people were involved, aged between 9 and 20 from England and Scotland. 80 respondents were male and 20 were female.

Up the rangers

A post shared by Harry Wellaway (@harry_wellawayy) on

The Under 15 Rangers are just one of our 20 teams to be sporting our new club kit this season.

The decision was taken at the end of the 2014/15 season to gradually move all of our teams to the same home and away kit. We will not move all of our teams immediately, as some teams have only recently purchased new kit, but as each team outgrows their current kit we will eventually achieve our goal: to have the same kit for every West Exe team.

This striking sky blue and navy kit is made by Joshila and you can purchase it, and many other West Exe branded goods, including beanies, hoodies and our new away kit, from our online shop.
