Over 500 servicemen and their families were in attendance on an emotional afternoon.

Wreaths were laid before the game by representatives of the Yorkshire Regiment, British Legion, Hardwick House Veterans, Military Police, Teesside Parachute Regiment, and Sedgefield War Veterans.

Wreaths were also laid on behalf of our Academy by Gabriel Broomes and Jaeden Faulkner, who represent our U12s.

There was a minute's silence ahead of the game which was followed by the Last Post.
