Nottingham Forest Community Trust were honoured to invite local 162 armed forces regiment down to The City Ground for the game against Norwich Football Club on Tuesday 21st November. 18 servicemen and women marched onto the hallow turf to form a guard on honour before the game, assisted by young boys and girls of local football team Gedling Southbank FC who were incredibly excited to be stood with the troops!

Pte Hallack was selected to lay a RBL wreath as an act of remembrance in front of the Nottingham Forest club crest after leading the teams out ahead of kick off. “Acting as the wreath layer for tonight’s match is something which I would never have been able to do without joining the Army Reserves, the confidence and belief in myself that I’ve got from my training will allow me properly appreciate the whole evening. I feel really honoured to have been chosen to lay the Wreath before the match, it really brings home the sacrifice and challenges of those who have served in the past.”

We are determined to support our Armed Forces community and have invited regular or reserve servicemen and women, those who have served in the past, and their families to a coffee morning with us down at The City Ground to discuss how we can help them.
