Loyal fan Joe’s crazy day out!

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO -

EX­ETER City fan Joe McCrea has been named the Sky Bet League Two Fan of the Month for March – but it could all have gone hor­ri­bly wrong.

A missed alarm at 6am meant he failed to catch the sup­port­ers’ coach to Carlisle and put his ever-present sea­son in jeop­ardy.

How­ever, the stu­dent got a taxi to Ex­eter train sta­tion for 7.30am and paid £130 for a one-way ticket to Carlisle to en­sure he was there to see the 3-1 victory.

He said: “I had to find a way of get­ting there and it turned into a day I will re­mem­ber for the rest of my life.” Gre­cians boss Paul Tis­dale,

pic­tured with Joe, said: “I’m glad we were able to re­ward his ded­i­ca­tion with a ter­rific win!”

Ful­ham fan Pete Wilkes took the Cham­pi­onship ac­co­lade and Bris­tol City sup­porter Jerry Tock­nell the League One prize.
