Saturday’s clash with the Tigers will be the club’s annual dedicated remembrance fixture.

A verse from the poem “In Flanders Field” will also be read out by one of the cadets shortly before the match starts.

The Poppy | A symbol of hope and remembrance
The poppy is the enduring symbol of remembrance for those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country, and for those who continue to defend and improve our way of life today.
This resilient flower flourished in the midst of destruction, becoming a symbol of hope and a peaceful future.
