READ | Millers to wear black armbands at Preston

26 October 2018

Preston North End’s game with the Millers at Deepdale tomorrow has been designated as the Lilywhites’ Remembrance Day Fixture.

Tomorrow’s match is Preston’s final home game before November 11th, and there will be a number of events taking place to remember those who have fallen and particularly to mark the centenary anniversary of the end of First World War in 1918.

Preston will be unveiling a memorial which features the names of the 21 former first team, reserve and amateur players registered with the club who lost their lives in the war between 1914 and 1918.

The events continue just before kick-off, when the two teams will be accompanied out onto the pitch by eight service personnel and 21 children, representing those who died on the list, each child wearing a kit bearing the name of one of those 21 on the back of the shirt.

Before kick-off, The Last Post will be played.

Preston will also be wear poppies on their home shirts, whilst the Millers will pay our respects by wearing black armbands.

Rotherham United will wear poppies on our home shirts for our own Remembrance Day fixture which will take place against Swansea City on Saturday 3rd November.
