Town to pay tribute to those lost in armed conflict
- Town’s plans for Remembrance Game against Barnsley
- Club pays its respects to the Armed Forces
- Poppy shirts to be auctioned off for the Royal British Legion
Huddersfield Town is proud to use the Sky Bet Championship fixture against Barnsley as the Club’s annual Remembrance Game.
Town will make several tributes to honour the work done by the Armed Forces and remember those who have given their lives protecting our country.
Please look out for collectors from the Royal British Legion around the John Smith’s Stadium on Saturday (26 October 2019), who are taking donations towards their great cause.
An hour before kick-off, supporters will be able to see the fantastic poppy banner that will stretch across the centre circle.
As the teams enter from the tunnel, the Club Captains from both sides will take poppy wreaths to the centre circle in tribute to those lost in armed conflict.
The Huddersfield District Army Veterans Association will also provide a guard of honour at pitchside.
‘The Last Post’ will then be played during the minute’s silence at the John Smith’s Stadium by a member of the Band of the Yorkshire Regiment.
Not only this, the players’ shirts will don the poppy emblem and after the game the match-worn shirts will be auctioned off to raise vital funds for the Royal British Legion.
Additionally, special poppy bin badges featuring the Town crest can be purchased at Town’s retail outlets, so you can support both Huddersfield Town and our fallen heroes on Saturday, with all proceeds donated to the Royal British Legion.
Robyn Kennerdale, Huddersfield Town’s Supporter Services Manager, commented:
“We are proud to pay our respect to the armed forces at the Barnsley game.
“I’m delighted through the sale of poppy pin badges and the match-worn shirts that we are able to raise some vital funds for the Royal British Legion.
“We are also happy to welcome guests from the Yorkshire Regiment Band and local Veterans Association to mark this occasion.”
