Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard made a special presentation to the Poppy Appeal at Melwood this week, which will help raise funds for The Royal British Legion.

The Reds midfielder presented the signed poppy shirts that the team wore during their Barclays Premier League fixture against Chelsea at Anfield on November 8, 2014.

Andrew Moore, John Grimes and David Fearon, who are all serving soldiers with the 4th Battalion Duke of Lancaster's Regiment, received the special jerseys alongside Bill Martin, the membership support officer Merseyside/West Lancashire for The Royal British Legion.

All 23 shirts will now be auctioned here on eBay until December 7, with all monies raised to go towards providing essential care and support to serving members of the armed forces, veterans of all ages and their families.

Gerrard commented: "It's always an honour for the team to wear the poppy on our shirts and this year is particularly special in marking 100 years since World War I.

"We are thankful to all who serve in the armed forces for the amazing work that they do in serving our country."

Martin added: "On behalf of The Royal British Legion, I would like to thank the club for the support they have given to the Poppy Appeal over the past six years.

"The backing we receive is so important and enables us to raise vital funds which help support our work that we deliver to serving members of the armed forces and ex-personnel across the Merseyside region and beyond.

"Last year, the shirts donated from the Fulham fixture raised more than £26,000 for the Poppy Appeal. It would be fantastic if we can achieve that figure again this year or, even better, beat it."
