Bolton, Lancashire born centre half Stanley Popplewell began his football career with Barrow during the First World War, and after the War he signed for Southern League club Exeter City, making his debut in a 1-1 draw at Southampton that August. He was virtually ever present during his single season at St James’ Park, scoring 4 goals in 41 appearances for The Grecians, and was signed by Second Division club Blackpool in the 1920 close season, for whom he made his Football League debut, and only appearance, against Bury the same September.
