TOWN REMEMBERS

12 November 2021

The Club politely requests for supporters of both clubs to take their seats as early as possible in order to pay their respects

Saturday's game at home to Oxford United is this year's designated Remembrance fixture as the Club pays its respects to those that have made the ultimate sacrifice in armed conflict.

Town's players will proudly wear shirts emblazoned with the Poppy for tomorrow afternoon, with all match-worn and match-prepared shirts then being signed and auctioned off with proceeds going to the Royal British Legion. These shirts will be available to bid on from kick-off.

A number of other tributes will take place on the day with both captain's laying a wreath in the centre circle.

Troops from the 7th Parachute Regiment Royal Horse Artillery will be special guests of the Club and will be pitchside ahead of kick-off before watching the game from the Directors' Box at Portman Road.

The troops will also be in the FanZone with regiment equipment and to engage with supporters of all ages.

The Royal British Legion will be holding a bucket collection in the FanZone while supporters can also donate online here.

Bugler Jon Holden from the East of England Co-op brass band will perform the Last Post before a period of silence ahead of kick-off.

The Club politely requests for supporters of both clubs to take their seats as early as possible in order to pay their respects.

We will remember them.
