It was a hundred years ago that Exeter City went to Argentina to teach the locals something about football. On the 22 May 1914, the team, along with team officials and WAGS (yep, that's right or maybe they were wives of officials, and they sure wore bonny hats!) left Exeter Queen Street station for Southampton, for a boat to Argentina.See photo on this page May 1914. In July 1914 they had the honour of playing a 3-3 draw with the Brazil national side, when they toured South America.
