Potter, Ben





Biographical Text

Ben Potter played twice for Exeter City in the Southern League in 1919/20 before moving to Yeovil and Petters United. 

There appears to be some confusion as where Ben was signed from by Exeter City in 1919. Some record books show Barrow, which is the more likely, although the Express and Echo indicates Exeter Argyle.

Having arrived at the club, he played twice for Exeter City in consecutive matches in November 1919 against Portsmouth and Northampton Town. 

Ben was to leave Exeter to join Yeovil and Petters United soon after the Somerset club's admission to the Western League.





Peter Hawkridge
