Wanderers To Pay Respects At Annual Remembrance Fixture

Bolton Wanderers will pay respects to all those who have lost their lives in conflict at the club’s annual Remembrance fixture, taking place at the University of Bolton Stadium on Saturday.

For the upcoming fixture versus Oxford United, supporters are advised to be in their seats by 2.45pm to join in the commemorations before kick off (3pm).

A guard of honour including military veterans and family representatives of those who have lost their lives in conflict, and were Wanderers fans, will welcome the players on to the pitch.

Club Chaplain Phil Mason will then read the Ode to Remembrance, a wreath will be laid on the pitch and a bugler will play the Last Post, prior to a minute’s silence.

The players will then commence their game, wearing shirts bearing the poppy as part of the afternoon’s Remembrance activities. The same shirts will be worn at Wanderers’ next away League game at Cambridge United before being auctioned off to raise vital funds for the Poppy Legion.
