iFollow Rovers freeview | The Last Post / moment of silence at Charlton Athletic

4 November 2018

Supporters, players and staff from Charlton Athletic and Rovers paid their respects to those who gave their life in conflicts prior to Saturday's League One game at the Valley.

Around 20 troops from Woolwich Barracks, alongside a dozen submariners, led both sets of players out before the match then joined the players and officials in the centre of the pitch.

A bugler played the Last Post before a period of silence to remember those who have given their lives in conflict, as well as those killed in the helicopter crash outside the King Power Stadium following Leicester City's game against West Ham United a week earlier.

Rovers players wore black armbands with poppies on as a further mark of respect, as football unites to mark the centenary of the end of World War One.
