Saturday 11th November saw our Remembrance fixture where we honoured those who gave their lives to protect the freedoms that we enjoy today.

As per usual the Last Post was sounded at Grosvenor Vale in a short pre-match ceremony. For the first time we had a Tri-service presence who were proud to lead out the teams. One of whom was carrying the Wealdstone Football Club Supporters Club poppy wreath.

Led by Chief Petty Officer Andy Gibbs from HMS Collingwood accompanied by Sergeant Brett Aherne from RAF Northolt, Lance Corporal Terry Hissey from The Rifles, Air Cadet Jacob Stocking and James McNulty, the Manager of our opponents, Rochdale Football Club.

Bugler Jane Anderson from Northwood Royal Naval Volunteer Band sounded The Last Post.

A poignant and fitting tribute reminding all that we must never forget the past and those who defended our freedoms.
