Seasiders To Mark Remembrance Day

Poppies have been added to the Blackpool shirts for the game against Ipswich Town tomorrow, as The Seasiders prepare to mark Remembrance Day.  

Soldiers from The Duke of Lancaster's Regiment and the Territorial Army have been invited to Bloomfield Road, while a number of veterans will be guests in the Sponsors' Lounge. 

Both sides will be drummed out by drummers from The Duke of Lancaster's Regiment, with the respective captains carrying a poppy wreath out onto the pitch. The Last Post will be played by a bugler, prior to a minute's silence being held before kick-off.  

Details regarding the auctioning off of the poppy shirts will be announced on Monday, with all proceeds going to the The Royal British Legion.
