Gallery: Robins Remember the Fallen

12 November 2017

Cheltenham Town joined Sky Bet League One and Two clubs across the country in paying our respects to those that lost their lives in conflict ahead of our match with Luton Town.

Across all of the 72 member clubs, there was a minute’s silence prior to kick-off to remember and honour those that lost their lives so we can enjoy the freedom we enjoy today.

At the LCI Rail Stadium, players from Cheltenham Town and Luton Town plus a crowd of 3,900 fans observed a minute’s silence before the match.

We also welcomed the Cheltenham branch of the Royal British Legion (RBL), with volunteers from the RBL selling poppies around the stadium before the match and taking donations.

Finally, thank you to fans who purchased the special edition of The Robin matchday programme that was on sale at the LCI Rail Stadium.

Club secretary and historian, Paul Godfrey, researched and produced a special article for the programme on the Cheltenham team from 1913/14, telling the thought-provoking and moving stories of those that went to war and never came home.

The article will appear later on this Remembrance Sunday.
