      ROYAL BRITISH LEGION THANK REDS FOR REMEMBRANCE PLANS

      The Royal British Legion have today expressed their gratitude to Liverpool FC and its supporters for the efforts being put in place to help raise both funds and awareness for the Poppy Appeal.
      A minute's silence will be held before Monday's live televised game against Birmingham City at Anfield and this will be preceded by two service personnel and a Royal British Legion standard bearer placing a ceremonial poppy on the centre circle.
       
      In addition, a ground collection will be held and advertising made available within both the matchday programme and on electronic LED pitchside boards to further raise awareness of the appeal. The match shirts from the game against Birmingham City will also be handed over to the Royal British Legion to auction off to raise additional income for the Poppy Appeal.
       
      David Murray, County Manager of the Royal British Legion, commented: "The Royal British Legion are delighted with the support given to Remembrance by Liverpool Football Club.
       
      "Their generosity in allowing us to collect in their Stadium, their kindness in including a statement in their matchday programme together with the donation of the matchday shirts demonstrates their support of the Poppy Appeal is well in excess of anything we could ever have hoped for. Thank you to Liverpool Football Club and all your Supporters."

      The Poppy Appeal raises money for those who have lost loved ones in wars and provides ongoing support.

      It usually coincides with Rememberance Day each year.

      Good on the club for raising funds.

      My guess he was talking about those brain-washed, bigots who use the poppy appeal and Remembrance Sunday as a political football.

      Think it's because where the poppy is Red and our home shirt is Red it wouldn't be too clear, would just see the middle of it.

      Would explain why I am yet to see a team with an all Red shirt like ourselves and the Mancs for example have it on the shirt.

      Great gesture by the club.  Well in LFC!

      Would certainly explain it.  Got Wales v All Blacks on at the moment and both teams have poppies on their sleeves, but Wales have theirs on the white stripe so it can be seen.
