Measures introduced by the club to help fans attend the match in ‘virtual form’ means 12 much-loved players will join their fellow Grecians in the capital.

Thousands of Exeter City fans have paid to have their faces put on environmentally friendly cut-outs, which will be taken to Wembley and placed in the stands to create an audience with a difference.
