Poppy Shirts For Remembrance Fixture

Club To Honour & Remember The Fallen At Morecambe Game

8 November 2019

Poppies have been emblazoned on the Blackpool players' shirts for the club's Remembrance Weekend fixture against Morecambe.

The poppy shirts will be worn as part of the Seasiders' tributes to the fallen, which, in conjunction with Blackpool FC Community Trust, will see six Blackpool supporters, who have all served in the forces, lead the teams out onto the pitch at Bloomfield Road, while a seventh supporter, who served in the Royal Marines, will bugle The Last Post. 

On the back of the weekend, the players' shirts will be individually signed and auctioned off to raise money for the Royal British Legion's Poppy Appeal. Details of how to bid will be revealed next week.
