On Sunday 7th December our club Norton Lees Juniors u12s did there bit for this great memorial to the brave young men who fought for our country in the first world war.
‘Football Remembers’ is the series of programmes and events being delivered jointly by the Premier League, The FA and the Football League, in partnership with the British Council, to commemorate the First World War. In 2014 most activity centres on one of the most iconic moments of the First World War, the 1914 Christmas Truce football match. Football Remembers kicked off in May 2014 when the partners launched a Football Remembers education pack that was sent to more than 30,000 schools across the UK. It includes resources to help children learn about the Truce and football’s role in recruitment and morale during the First World War.
