Representatives of the Royal British Legion will lay a wreath on the pitch before the Redcar Athletic v West Allotment Celtic game on Saturday.

The event will be part of the Remembrance Sunday ceremonies across the country.

Club secretary Kevin Fryett said:  “Royal British Legion standard bearers will also be taking part in the ceremony which will be followed by a minute’s silence to honour and remember those who sacrificed themselves to secure and protect our freedom.

“We are also giving free entry to all past and current members of the Armed Forces and members of the Royal British Legion.”
