Bury Football Club are proud to be part of the ‘Football Remembers’ campaign, and have placed a tree outside the ground at Main Reception, to remember those who gave their lives during the First World War.
On 11th November 1918, the Armistice signalled the end of World War One. One century on, England's four football bodies are part of the nationwide commemorations, with support from Premier League clubs, EFL clubs and the English national teams paying tribute through a variety of activities.
Bury have placed the tree at the club to mark the efforts of servicemen and women, past and present. This includes our very own Teddy Bullen, who was a playing member of this Club and died playing the greater game.
The tree and the plaque will be a living legacy to the hundreds of footballers who served and fell in the First World War.
Bespoke commemorative coins from the Royal British Legion will be used for the coin toss when the Shakers take on Dover Athletic in the FA Cup on Saturday and we will wear special poppy armbands for the game.
For Club and Country is run in partnership with the Woodland Trust and the National Football Museum.
The FA and England also planted trees at St George's Park in memory of the 14 internationals who served in World War One.
