This weekend's Sky Bet Championship clash against Swansea City marks the club's annual Remembrance Day match.
And with it being 100 years since the end of the First World War, Bolton Wanderers will be marking the occasion with the following acts:
- A commemorative coin has been commissioned as part of the anniversary and will be used at the coin toss, while it will be passed to the referee by a member of the Armed Forces. It will be auctioned off after the game, with proceeds going to the Royal British Legion.
- The players will all be wearing customised poppy themed shirts to mark the occasion and they will also be auctioned off with the monies going to the Royal British Legion.
- Volunteers from the Royal British Legion will also be outside the University of Bolton Stadium and dotted around the inside of the ground to raise money.
- At approximately 2.50pm, a guard of honour will be made to honour the members of the military in attendance and their families.
- Club Chaplain Phil Mason will read the Ode to Remembrance, before a minute's silence will take place prior to kick off.
- On Wednesday meanwhile, the club planted two trees adjacent to the Nat Lofthouse statue, in memory of two Wanderers players William Wallace and Harold Greenhalgh who lost their lives in World War One serving our country. This is in association with the Woodland Trust, National Football Museum and various governing bodies as a part of the “Football Remembers” project.
We highly advise all fans attending tomorrow’s game against Swansea City to be in their seats by 2:50pm for this Act of Remembrance.
