Poppy Shirts Raise Over £2,000

5 December 2012

Our auction of the special shirts worn at Yeovil Town in November has raised a substantial amount for the British Legion's Poppy Appeal.

The players all donned a commemorative shirt with a poppy emblem during the League One game at Huish Park and these were then made available via ebay. 

Winners of the auctions have been notified and they will be guests of the Club for Saturday's game with Stevenage where they will be presented with their shirts personally by the players who wore them. 

The auction raised more than £2,000 - all of which will be donated directly to the British Legion's Poppy Appeal.

"We're delighted that we've been able to raise a significant sum once again," said Pools Chief Executive Russ Green.

"It's a cause we always try to support as much as we can and I'd like to thank all the supporters who took part in the auction.

"To bring in such a large amount is brilliant when times are as they are so we're extremely proud of our fans."
