Signed poppy shirts donated to charity

Support for Royal British Legion.

The match shirts worn by Leeds United first-team players during our win over Bournemouth on Saturday have been signed and are now up for auction in support of the Royal British Legion.

All shirts for the match were embroidered with a poppy as part of the club’s Remembrance activity, with poppy shirts to also be worn for our cup game against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Wednesday evening and the Premier League game against Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday afternoon.

Each player has now signed either their match-worn or match-issued shirt from the Bournemouth fixture, and supporters can bid on the various items here.

The Royal British Legion was founded in 1921 and it is England’s largest armed forces charity, with 180,000 members benefiting from their work.

They provide lifelong support to serving and ex-serving personnel and their families, which could be anything from recovery and rehabilitation to transitioning to civilian life.

Supporters from around the world are welcome to bid on the shirts, with waiving all delivery costs.
