A number of events are planned in Northampton this weekend as the club and the town come together to mark the 100th anniversary of Walter’s death on a French battlefield in March 1918.
On Saturday (March 24th), while we are away at Fleetwood Town, Northampton Borough Council are holding a Centenary Memorial Service at the Guildhall with a 1pm start. On Sunday March 25th, a Walter Tull Commemorative Service will be held at All Saints Church in Northampton at 5pm, lasting for just under an hour. All Northampton Town supporters are invited to attend wearing club colours.
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.
In addition, please check ntfc.co.uk and the club’s official social media channels for plenty of content in tribute to Walter Tull this week.
