Minute's silence to be observed on Saturday

Clubs to pay tribute ahead of Remembrance Weekend, and to honour the five victims of the Leicester helicopter tragedy.

2 November 2018

A minute's silence will be observed ahead of kick-off at Saturday's Sky Bet League 1 fixture between Wycombe and Peterborough at Adams Park.

Fans will be asked to pay their respects ahead of Remembrance Weekend, being the Chairboys' closest home game to the centenary of Armistice Day, as well as remembering the victims of the helicopter crash at Leicester last Saturday, which included Foxes owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha.

Meanwhile, representatives from the High Wycombe branch of the Royal British Legion, including a local unit of sea cadets, will be selling poppies around the stadium before the match.

In previous years the Legion have launched the poppy appeal with a formal ceremony at Adams Park on the final weekend of October - or attended a fixture on Remembrance Weekend - but neither option was available this season due to the club having away matches on both dates.
