A very special event has happened in English football. More than 10 seasons ago, more precisely in the 2010-2011 season, the Exeter club removed the jersey number 9, in honor of their legend, striker Adam Stansfield, who died on August 10, 2010, at the age of 31 from cancer.
Stansfield is one of the biggest names that Exeter has had, while in 160 games he has scored 39 goals.
Meanwhile, recently in a post on social networks, Exeter announced that it has returned the number 9 and entrusted it to Adam’s son, Jay Stansfield.
The 19-year-old moved to the club where his father played in the past on loan until the end of this season, as the striker’s card is owned by Fulham City.
