Sponsor a Linfield poppy shirt and support the Royal British Legion Appeal

Posted : 27th October 2017 at 16:30:28

For Linfield's away game with Ballinamallard United on Saturday November 4 the poppy will again be proudly displayed on the Linfield away jerseys worn by the players in action on that particular afternoon.

This welcome and appropriate gesture is a very public tribute to, and act of remembrance towards all those who lost their lives in the World Wars and other conflicts.

A total of 32 shirts have been specially commissioned by kit manufacturer and club sponsor, Umbro and are available for sponsorship for this year's Remembrance tribute.

Once David Healy has named his 16 man squad for this game at Ballinamallard, the relevant players' names and squad numbers will be printed on the back of the special jerseys.

Linfield is very keen to support the extremely worthwhile Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal through the production of these special Linfield poppy jerseys.

At a cost of only £100 (minimum), you could buy one of these unique Linfield jerseys worn by the players against Ballinamallard United next weekend. All proceeds after costs will be donated by Linfield to the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal.

At present, Linfield cannot guarantee which players will be playing in this particular game and therefore, while supporters may express a preference for which player's jersey they would like to sponsor, there can be no guarantee that that player will be involved in the game and will therefore have a special poppy shirt produced for him.

Supporters wishing to sponsor a Linfield poppy jersey are asked to text or ring Gary on 07753608069 but only after 5pm today.

Gary will take reservations but Linfield reserves the right to substitute your preference for another player, if either your preference has already been selected, or if your choice is not involved in the squad on the day in question.

When in contact with Gary, arrangements must be made for payment of the sponsored shirts and no Linfield poppy shirt will be handed over, unless payment has been made in full.

Linfield will not be making any money from this initiative which is in full support of the Poppy Appeal and Linfield expects this to be a hugely popular and well supported move with supporters.

It is therefore very likely that all the jerseys will be sponsored quickly, so if you are interested, you are encouraged to act quickly to avoid potential disappointment.

All reservations will be taken on a first come, first served basis (after 5pm today).

"At the going down of the sun and in the morning, we will remember them"
