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 Potter 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.
He played twice for Exeter City in consecutive matches in November 1919 against Portsmouth and Northampton Town.
He was to left Exeter to join Yeovil and Petters United soon after the club's admission to the Western League.
