City searching for relatives of former chairman and player

Exeter City Football Club are searching for any relatives of the chairman and a player who died on active service in the Exeter Blitz in May 1942.

Frederick Joseph Collymore Hunter was chairman of the club at the time of the blitz. He is buried in St John's in the Wilderness churchyard, Exmouth. Albert Edward Potter was a former player and is buried in All Saint's churchyard, Whipton Chapel.
