Promoted Exeter Chiefs get victory parade in Exeter
Exeter City Council has today revealed plans for a victory parade on Saturday, May 29 to mark the city’s all conquering rugby team’s promotion to the Country’s elite rugby league, the Guinness Premiership.
Plans have been made for an open topped bus carrying the playing squad from The Exeter Chiefs to parade through the city centre on Saturday, May 29, on way to a civic reception at The Guildhall, hosted by the city’s Lord Mayor, Cllr Marcel Choules. The Stagecoach bus will leave Exeter City Football Club’s St James’s Park at 11.30am on Saturday before travelling along Sidwell Street and the High Street arriving at The Guildhall at noon. The playing staff, coaches and directors from the cub will be welcomed by the Lord Mayor who will present each of them with a specially engraved glass to commemorate their promotion following the win against West Country rivals Bristol in last night’s game.
The Lord Mayor said: “This is a truly remarkable achievement for the Exeter Chiefs and can only be of good to the city and the surrounding areas. I was on the edge of my seat last night listening to the game and urging the team on to what was a famous victory. Congratulations to all of the team and everyone involved with the club.”
