Liverpool will play in special shirts embroidered with poppies to commemorate Remembrance weekend when they host Huddersfield Town at Anfield on Saturday.

The Reds' players will also sign their jerseys and donate them to the Royal British Legion to auction to raise valuable funds.

Last year, the special edition poppy-embroidered shirts worn by Liverpool during their fixture with Watford at Anfield raised over £13,000 for the Royal British Legion.

These vital funds help the Legion's work supporting today's generation of armed forces families and veterans, whether they are living with an injury or illness, coping with bereavement or finding employment.

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson said: "It's an honour for the team to be able to thank the armed forces and their families for everything they do.

"Their sacrifice is great and it's important for us to pay our respects to them at Anfield this weekend and remember all those who lost their lives serving their country."

In addition to a minute's silence before kick-off, the teams will be led onto the pitch by Legion standard bearers Lyndsey Taggart and Eddie Flaherty, together with Colour Sergeant John Grimes and Lance Corporal John O'Neil from the Duke of Lancaster's Regiment Local Infantry Battalion, 4 Lancs.

Further support to the Poppy Appeal will be given through an article published in the matchday programme, perimeter LED board advertising and a pre-match bucket collection.

The LFC Premier League Poppy Pin, which features the club crest and Royal British Legion poppy, is on sale now in club stores, LFC's official online store and via the Royal Britsih Legion's online poppy shop. All proceeds raised from sales of the badge, which is priced at £3.50, will go directly to the Royal British Legion.

The Royal British Legion's director of fundraising, Claire Rowcliffe, said: "The Poppy Appeal 2017 is encouraging the public to recognise that your poppy supports the armed forces community past and present, and is a symbol of both remembrance and hope.

"The work of the Legion is as relevant and vital today as it was in the aftermath of the First World War when the charity was founded. The donation for your poppy will help the Legion support today's armed forces community through hardships, injury and bereavements.

"We are incredibly grateful to the Premier League for supporting this year's Poppy Appeal and to the football community who each year dig deep and donate.

"The Legion's work is entirely dependent on the public's generous support, so please wear your poppy with pride, knowing that you are helping the armed forces community to live on."
