Remembrance Matchday.

9 November 2018

Saturday's Emirates FA Cup fixture against Notts County is the final home game to be played prior to Remembrance Day, so we'll be honouring those who have lost their lives in the line of duty with a minutes silence ahead of kick-off.

The entire Barnsley squad will be wearing match shirts with a poppy proudly displayed on the chest. All match worn shirts will be signed and auctioned later in the month, with proceeds going to the Royal British Legion. In addition to the shirts, a commemorative coin will be used by the referees for the toss and will also auctioned at a later date.

Collectors representing the Royal British Legion are scheduled to be present outside Oakwell. We would ask all attending the match to support their worthwhile cause where possible.

For supporters attending Saturday's fixture, we ask that you are in your seats in good time to welcome Lance Corporal Tom Kivlin, Petty Officer Mark Oxley, Corporal Robert Lee, Corporal Glenn Sutton, Warrant Officer Alan Rowe and Sergeant Richard Appleton to Oakwell.

They will all be present prior to kick off to lead both sides to the field, before laying wreaths ahead of John Hopkinson's rendition of 'The Last Post' and the minutes silence.

BE RED has been dedicated to our remembrance fixture this weekend, with stories to read at length from inside and outside of Oakwell.

We will remember them.
