As our trip to Weston-super-Mare AFC falls on Remembrance Day, there will be additional activities going on prior to kick-off at The Optima Stadium. Supporters have therefore been asked to arrive 15-20 minutes earlier than usual.
Before the game, we are delighted to be joined by several members of the Royal British Legion along with cadets from both OC 290 (Weston-super-Mare) Squadron Air Training Corps and Weston Sea Cadets & Royal Marines Cadets.
The joint cadet forces will be providing both teams a guard of honour as they walk out on the pitch, the Royal British Legion flag bearing party will be leading the teams to the centre circle, and a member of recently passed 100-year-old veteran, Reg Charles’, family will lay a wreath on behalf of Weston-super-Mare AFC.
The Last Post will follow the formation of teams around the centre circle and a minute’s silence will then be held.
We hope that as many supporters will join us before the game as we pay our respects.
