Amble, Northumberland born centre half John “Jack” Angus began his football career with local junior club Amble Welfare before joining Wolverhampton Wanderers in September 1928 and spending some months of the 1928-29 season at Molineux without making a first team appearance. He returned to north east football with Wath Athletic later in 1928 before joining Midland League Scunthorpe & Lindsey United in 1929, from where he joined Third Division (South) Exeter City in May 1930, making his Football League debut for The Grecians at Norwich City in December 1930, and in his debut season he played 4 cup ties as Exeter made the FA Cup Quarter Final, losing 4-2 in a replay to Sunderland.

Although initially not assured of his place, for example he only played 11 times as Exeter narrowly missed out on promotion to the Second Division finishing as runners up in 1932-33, he featured consistently from 1933, and his career with Exeter continued until it was interrupted by the onset of the Second World War. It was said of him at the time “he knows how to support his forwards with helpful passes”.

During the Second World War he played for Bristol Rovers as a wartime guest, resuming his career with Exeter City after the War, having been stationed in Redcar in 1945. Angus remained with the club until 1949, although he made only 4 further first team appearances. He had a joint benefit match with Richard ‘Digger’ Ebdon in March 1948 when Exeter City played Plymouth Argyle. At the age of 40, Angus was appointed player-coach at Sidmouth Town in July 1949. In total he scored twice in 283 appearances for The Grecians over some 17 years between first and final appearances.
