Millwall to mark Remembrance Day against Burton Albion

Pre-match ceremony before Brewers visit...

3 November 2017

Millwall's annual Remembrance Day fixture is this Saturday as The Lions take on Burton Albion in the Sky Bet Championship at The Den (kick-off 3pm).

The club is welcoming army personnel as special guests this weekend, with soldiers pitchside ahead of kick-off against The Brewers.

The pre-match ceremony will begin as the referee carries the matchball out on to the pitch, followed by two personnel, each carrying a wreath, and bugler.

Twenty soldiers will welcome the teams and officials on to the pitch, before the bugler plays the Last Post, which will be followed by a minute's silence to remember the fallen. The period of silence will be ended by the Reveille. 

Two personnel will then lay a wreath behind each goal in the final act of remembrance before the action gets underway.

Bucket collections for the British Legion Poppy Appeal will be held around the ground before kick-off, so dig deep!
