COBBLERS SET FOR REMEMBRANCE FIXTURE AS FOOTBALL REMEMBERS

Plans for Saturday's game as Northampton Town prepare to pay tribute

1 November 2018

Northampton Town's home fixture with Crewe Alexandra on Saturday is the club's annual remembrance fixture.

The annual service of remembrance will take place at the Walter Tull Memorial at 2pm and all supporters are welcome to attend.

The Cobblers players will warm up in special t-shirts ahead of the match. In partnership with Northampton Town’s community programme, and match sponsors Northampton Town Supporters Trust, schoolchildren took part in a competition to design a t-shirt logo for the Cobblers players to wear during the warm-up on Saturday. The winning design was submitted by Karolina Kowalctzyk of Spring Lane School.

A period of silence will take place before kick off to mark remembrance, as well as allowing all concerned to pay their respects to the victims of the helicopter accident at Leicester City last weekend.

The players will wear the poppy on their playing shirts this weekend, and after the period of remembrance is over these shirts will be auctioned to raise money for the Royal British Legion.
