Cpl Nina Lines who paraded on the pitch said; ‘The Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal is a great cause that supports the needs of servicemen and women and that need is as great now as it has ever been. As part of the local community, this is also a great opportunity to say thank you to the public for their considerable contribution in supporting us from the home front.’
