12 January 2022

Fleetwood Town’s annual memorial fixture is fast approaching as it is set to take place at the Sky Bet League One clash against Rotherham United on Saturday 15 January at Highbury.

This year is like years gone by as the first home fixture of the year is normally dedicated to remembering fans, staff, former players, and those connected to the football club that have sadly passed away in the last 12 months.

We, as a club, are set to pay our respects alongside our official Memorial Partners, J T Byrne Funeral Directors, who are sponsoring the game. At the game, a minute’s silence will be observed ahead of kick-off, with the names of those who have passed displayed on the big screen as a tribute.

John Byrne, Director at J T Byrne Funeral Directors, told us: “The annual memorial fixture is incredibly important to the whole footballing community of Fleetwood.

“It gives us an opportunity to pay our respects to loved ones who have passed away with such a personal tribute. We always find it incredibly touching the way the community of Fleetwood and the club come together to pay their respects and as Memorial Partners of Fleetwood Town, we are proud to support this fixture”.

Sam Heaney, Commercial Executive at Fleetwood Town, added: “The first home fixture of every year is very special to us at the football club and is something we take very seriously. I really want to encourage families that have lost loved ones to send in their tributes ahead of the game.”

We would like to encourage tributes to loved ones and can do this by emailing Jake.Parker@fleetwoodtownfc.com with the following: Full name, a photo, year of birth & year of passing.

The club thank J T Byrne for their support on such a special day. If you require any further information from J T Byrne Funeral Directors, please call them on 01253 776281.
