Got to hand it to them, they've now moved on 3 players in less than 2 years to bigger and better things and earned well over £3 million profit from them all, today's latest being undisclosed but rumoured to be over the 1m mark.

Anything obvious that they are doing different to us or is it just coincidental that they have had three in quick succession?

The youth system set up and Tisdale always tries to give local youths a chance.

Stockley and Wheeler didnt come through Exeters youth system did they?

I think the best way is to look at the Dembele's, and DJ's of this world and build your side around them with a spine of more experienced guys

Exeter are a very well run club. Active supporters, a solid manager who's been given bags of time and a decent youth set-up.

I don't think they're swimming in cash but they understand that the best way to make money is to develop young players and move them on.

Easy to say 'replicate that model' because it needs a sound long-term plan and plenty of patience, but I'd be looking at Clifton and Wright as a way to create a bit of cash for the future, instead of relying on Fenty loans and Harvey handouts.

What really put them on their feet was the F.A. Cup draw against Manyoo the other year. I seem to think that the managed to draw the game at Old Trafford and then lost the replay, but a couple of TV fees in addition to the prize money from a decent cup run really cleared their debts at the time.

Yonks since we had a really good cup run to bring in some good money here, unfortunately!

Nearly 13 years ago now that game and it as good as saved them from going bust. They did draw 0-0 at OT but then lost the replay at home 2-0.

Exeter beat us in the 1st Round of the cup that year and then they went on to win the 2nd round at home to Donny before drawing Man Utd.

They've just signed two young lads on loan from wba who are highly recommended for the future. Clever business all round for them
