Northampton Saints to honour Remembrance Day

saints-remembrance

Northampton Saints will be marking Remembrance Day with a special match day at Franklin’s Gardens this weekend when players, coaches and supporters take a moment to remember those who have given their lives for their country.

Saints take on Gloucester Rugby in the Anglo-Welsh Cup at 3pm on Saturday and there will be a minute’s silence and wreaths will be laid on the Franklin’s Gardens war memorial before kick-off.

As has become the Saints’ custom over the past few years, supporters can bid for the right for a youngster aged between seven and 14 to join the team as a mascot at the game, walking out with the team and lining up as wreaths are laid on the Franklin’s Gardens war memorial.

There are 15 places available, with match tickets for the child and an accompanying adult included in the prize. Proceeds from the silent auction will be donated to The Royal British Legion. To place your bid, email community@northamptonsaints.co.uk no later than close of business tomorrow Wednesday, 9 November.

“The Remembrance Ceremony is always a special occasion at Franklin’s Gardens,” said Chris Wearmouth, Head of Communications, Northampton Saints.

“We’ve had close links with our Armed Forces, especially the British Army, for over 100 years, which is why we have been auctioning off the mascot places for the Remembrance game for the past few years, raising thousands of pounds to help The Royal British Legion support our veterans.”

Tickets for Northampton Saints versus Gloucester Rugby remain available at www.tinyurl.com/SAI-GLO-AW1617, and by using Print@Home supporters can save themselves the administration fees and beat the match day queues.
