Shakers remembrance service to take place before kick-off...
As is now usual at the JD Stadium ahead of Remembrance weekend, our enhanced minutes silence will once again take place before this weekend’s game with Cambridge United.
Standard bearers from the Royal British Legion, representatives from all three armed forces, will march onto the pitch before kick-off. The Standards will be escorted by Buglers from the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers (Lancashire).
We will also have two serving members of thE Royal Regiment of Fusiliers in attendance at the game, who will deliver the ball to the match officials on the pitch.
Both teams will come out as normal, though they may be one or two minutes earlier than normal. Once the coin toss has been completed, the Standard Bearers and buglers will march into the centre circle. The Buglers will then play the last post. The final note of the last post will signal the start of the minute’s silence. The buglers will then play the reveille signalling the carry on before the Standard bearers march off allowing the game to commence.
Please show our veterans and serving soldiers the respect they deserve during the game on Saturday
Video from the same ceremony from previous seasons can be found below. We will have the video from Saturday’s ceremony live on our website and Social Media at some point on Saturday evening.
