Poppy Shirts Listed For Auction

Fans can now bid for the special poppy shirts worn by the players last weekend and raise money for the Royal British Legion

By Dan King - Newcastle United Club Reporter

The poppy-emblazoned shirts worn by the Newcastle United players in last weekend's game against West Ham United have now been listed for auction to raise money for the Royal British Legion.

All 18 shirts issued to the starting XI and the substitutes have gone on eBay with the aim of gathering thousands of pounds for the charity, which provides help and welfare to the serving and ex-Service community and their families.

The players have each signed their shirt, which proudly displayed a red poppy as the Club saluted fallen heroes on Remembrance Day against the Hammers.

Last year, almost £8,000 was raised as the players' poppy shirts from the win against Everton were auctioned off with Demba Ba's shirt raising £1,600.
