Young Hatfield footballers have done their bit for the environment whilst supporting the Poppy Appeal.
Players from the Welham Albion Football Club’s Titans and Warriors, who were raising money for the appeal, chose to go litter picking to show respect to soldiers past and present.
Welham Albion Football Club chairman and senior team manager John Shearer said the group walked more than one mile collecting litter on their way to placing a wreath at the St Mary’s Church war memorial in Hatfield in honour of the nation’s soldiers.
The wreath was made by Louis Ives at DJS Hardware Store, where the litter collecting walk began.
It took the form of the club’s badge made from poppies.
After laying the wreath, the group continued to clean the area.
