Services held in Northampton to remember fallen hero

25 March 2018

Two events took place in Northampton this weekend as the club and the town came together to mark the 100th anniversary of Walter’s death on a French battlefield in March 1918.

On Saturday (March 24th), Northampton Borough Council held a Centenary Memorial Service at the Guildhall, while on Sunday, a Walter Tull Commemorative Service was held at All Saints Church in Northampton.

The focus of the club’s own commemorations will be the Charlton Athletic game on Good Friday.

At 2pm at the Walter Tull Memorial, chaplain Haydon Spenceley will conduct a short service while the big screen will play a pre-match tribute to Walter at around 2.50pm. Please also look out for a special edition of the match programme on Good Friday. We will also mark the occasion with a period of silence in memory of Walter just before kick off.
