Players and staff to attend Remembrance Service

Players and staff from Bristol Bears and Bristol Bears Women will attend the annual Remembrance Service at the Memorial Gates on Friday, November 9th (11am). 

The club’s history is closely entwined with that of the military, with many of the club’s former players fighting in conflicts from World War One up to the present day.

The club’s former home at the Memorial Stadium is dedicated to the memory of local rugby union players from the city killed during the First World War, and the gates are inscribed with a message to those men that made the ultimate sacrifice for their country.

“As somebody who had the privilege of representing the club at the Memorial Ground on many occasions, I know how important this time of year is for everybody associated with Bristol Bears."

Mark Tainton, chief operating officer

“As somebody who had the privilege of representing the club at the Memorial Ground on many occasions, I know how important this time of year is for everybody associated with Bristol Bears,” said Mark Tainton, chief operating officer.

“The annual remembrance service at the Memorial Gates on Friday, where all staff, players and management will attend to mark those that have fallen.

“We will also be hosting a minute’s silence – and the playing of The Last Post - at next Sunday’s game with Exeter Chiefs.”
