“The Exeter City players engaged in the East Devon v Plymouth Argyle match today will wear black crape on their arms as a mark of respect to Frederick Youlden, of the Exeter City Football Club, who died on Thursday last of consumption (TB). The City players will also wear crapes at their final League match of the season, next Saturday at Tavistock.
