The Mail has reported that ‘while there was by no means unanimity among the membership, the ‘overwhelming’ view, according to sources, was that they should alter their logo.’

However, the club will be continue to be known as ‘the chiefs’ as that has been the name given to the top side in Devon since the 1900s
