Poppy Appeal match shirts to be auctioned

Posted on 3 November 2009  - 12:00

As part of the Club's support for The Royal British Legion and the Poppy Appeal campaign, our first team match shirts, worn this weekend in the Barclays Premier League fixture against Sunderland, will each feature a Poppy.

As part of the Club's support for The Royal British Legion and the Poppy Appeal campaign, our first team match shirts, worn this weekend in the Barclays Premier League fixture against Sunderland, will each feature a Poppy.

By placing a Poppy on Club shirts we hope to raise awareness through football of the charity, as well as funds via a match shirt auction.

Fans will be given the chance to bid for each match shirt next week on the Club's website, and all funds raised will be donated to The Royal British Legion's Poppy Appeal campaign.

Supporters are also invited to wear a Poppy at the game on Saturday as both a sign of remembrance and to also show their support for those men and women who are serving today, as well as ex-Services and dependants.
