Rotherham United will sport black armbands at Saturday’s fixture against Blackburn Rovers at Ewood Park, in a show of respect for those servicemen and women who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country, as Remembrance Day approaches.
Following direction from the EFL, the Millers selected their home game against Swansea City last weekend as their official Remembrance Day match and wore poppies on their traditional red and white home strip for the fixture, whilst various other tributes took place on the day.
Saturday’s game marks Blackburn’s closest home fixture to the 11th November and therefore, Rovers will be hosting a number of similar tributes at the weekend.
The Ewood Park-club have very kindly invited the Millers to select a representative to lead out the team at the weekend holding a wreath of poppies and we are delighted that supporter Peter Langstaff has accepted the offer to step out ahead of Paul Warne’s side on Saturday.
The hosts will also wear poppies on their shirts for this fixture.
The poppy shirts worn by Rotherham United for the game against Swansea City will be online shortly to be auctioned off to raise funds for the British Legion.
