Exeter City chairman Edward Chorlton has given his most open and candid interview yet to the Western Morning News' Grecians' correspondent, Stuart James.

Chorlton has been accused of failing to communicate with Exeter supporters, so we asked you for your questions and we put them to the chairman in a full and frank interview yesterday.

Matters for debate ranged from the latest news on the redevelopment plans and changes to manager Paul Tisdale's playing budget for the next campaign.

Chorlton openly talked about his achievements during his three-year tenure at the football club and what he hopes to achieve in the coming season.

We also asked him about club issues, such as the redevelopment plans, what supporters have to look forward to for next season, and the club's 'vision' to be playing – or have played – Championship football by the year 2020.

The interview will be published in the Western Morning News throughout next week, starting on Monday, and will also be available online.

    I am very much looking forward to reading Stuart James' reports next week. It is refreshing to see a local journalist tell it like it is and ask some probing questions. I feel the people who run our football club have, for many years, had a 'cushy number'. They haven't been transparent enough. Someone needs to ask the questions that the fans want answering or else the 'cushy number' is allowed to continue, without being questioned. To have two highly paid individuals running the club is unacceptable when Paul Tisdale's playing budget is squeezed dry. A decent player (Kevin Amankwa) was allowed to leave us this week. That shouldn't be allowed to happen whilst there are no cuts off the pitch. Keep up the good work Stuart.
