Rovers Holding Annual Remembrance Service On Friday

8 November 2018

This Friday, Bristol Rovers will be holding their annual Remembrance Day service at the Memorial Gates.

A few words of remembrance will be spoken in memory of those who lost their lives during World War One, World War Two and other conflicts.

Manager Darrell Clarke and the rest of the Rovers squad will be in attendance, as a brief ceremony will be held to mark the 100th anniversary of the Armistice of WWI.

In support of the national ‘Football Remembers’ campaign, the Club has planted five trees at the Memorial Stadium as a legacy to the five Rovers players who served and died during WWI.

The trees have been donated by the Woodland Trust, who are working in partnership with the National Football Museum's 'For Club and Country' project, The Premier League, English Football League, Professional Footballers’ Association and Football Association to encourage clubs around the country to plant trees to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice.

We would politely ask residents to clear the road down the Memorial Gates ahead of the ceremony tomorrow morning.

Rovers' official Remembrance fixture will be the home game against Scunthorpe United at the Memorial Stadium on Saturday 17th November.
