📝 Opportunity to take part in our RBL 'Remember Together' ceremony

Would you like to lay a wreath on behalf of City supporters?

16 October 2019

Exeter City will be celebrating 'Remember Together' at the post Armistice Day match with Cheltenham Town on Saturday, November 16.

Our highly regarded ceremony will take place at St James Park prior to the 3pm kick-off.

Because the match is after Armistice Day the last post will not be performed by a bugler. The rest of the short service will remain the same. It is anticipated the exhortation will be read by Kevin Jeffrey, Royal British Legion County Chairman with Major Colin Pape DL, Lord Lieutenant’s office laying the first wreath before presenting the referee with the match ball.

Other wreaths will be laid on the pitch by both football clubs, the Royal British Legion, the Royal Marines, the Trust, a Cheltenham Town supporter and an Exeter City supporter.

This creates an opportunity for an Exeter City supporter to participate by laying a wreath on behalf of City supporters. To volunteer, please fill out the form below, giving your reason for wishing to take part before the closing date of 5pm on Thursday, October 31, 2019. We hope to notify the chosen person on Thursday, November 7.
