After four seasons in local Devonshire football, Exeter turned professional and were admitted to the Southern League in 1908, replacing Tottenham, who had been elected to the Football League. The Grecians struggled against Swindon's golden generation in their early meetings - the Town winning all five games played in their opening two seasons, scoring fourteen goals in the process - but City did the double over the Town in 1910/11, despite the Town winning the Southern League championship, and they also ended Swindon's defence of the Southern Charity Cup the following season.

Both teams were elected to the League in the new Third Division in 1920, and both sides remained as members of this division until the Fourth Division was created in 1958, Exeter dropping down to the lower level while Swindon remained in the Third. During this period, both sides registered their biggest victories over the other - Exeter beating the Town 5-0 in 1932, the Town winning 7-1 in 1949. Also, Swindon legend Harry Morris played his second match for the Town in 1926 against Exeter, and he netted his second hat-trick in a 4-2 win.

Of the side that won promotion to the Premiership in 1993, two players originally came to the County Ground from Exeter - Lou Macari signed Martin Ling from the Grecians in 1986 for a fee of 25,000, though he played just twice before being sold to Southend, then bought back by Glenn Hoddle in 1991, and Town hero Shaun Taylor was Exeter's player of the year before Hoddle paid 200,000 for his services in the same year.
