ON THE ROAD: From padlocks and pasties to promotions and pride... how a volunteer army brought...
Two padlocks dangle from the latch of the door to Exeter Citys inner sanctum.
They are innocuous amid corridors plastered with vintage photographs and the charming museum packed with memorabilia of all kinds from a golden boot won by club legend Tony Kellow to the pink boots worn by England international Ollie Watkins but they are heavy with significance.
They were the locks used by fans to keep rogue owners John Russell and Mike Lewis out of St James Park. They represent an uprising, lasting symbols of the storming of the palace, and everything that has happened since.
Julian Tagg gives them an affectionate rattle and recalls the day he locked the doors and retreated to the office used by Russell and Lewis, who ran up debts of 4.8million and left Exeter in an existential crisis, sat down and wondered: Now what do we do?
What they did do was take ownership of the club once it had been through the administration process and set about writing one of footballs great success stories of the 21st century.
