SIGNED POPPY SHIRT AUCTION BEGINS

Posted on: Tue 19 Nov 2013

The exclusive poppy-embroidered match shirts the team wore during the game against West Bromwich Albion on 9 November are now up for grabs to raise funds for the Royal British Legion.

The shirts with the poppy on the chest are being auctioned via eBay in aid of the Royal British Legion's Poppy Appeal. The poppy is the official symbol of the Legion and originates from the poppy fields of Flanders, the scene of some of the most tragic battles in World War One.

Each shirt will be signed by the respective player, including John Terry, Frank Lampard and Eden Hazard, whose injury-time penalty earned us a 2-2 draw on the day before Remembrance Sunday.

All money raised will go towards the Poppy Appeal, which helps men and women from the armed forces and their families, offering financial, social and emotional support.
