COUNTY & PLYMOUTH TO PAY THEIR RESPECTS TO ABERFAN VICTIMS

21 October 2016

County and Plymouth will pay their respects on the 50th anniversary of the Aberfan disaster.

Both teams will lay a wreath to pay their respects to the victims of the Aberfan disaster before Saturday's game against Plymouth Argyle. This will be followed by a minute's silence at Rodney Parade.
 
Andrew Lloyd, who is a member of the supporters group The Smile Council, will carry a specially made black and amber wreath onto the pitch to represent the Club, with counterparts from Plymouth Argyle also laying down a wreath.
 
Supporters are asked to make their way into the ground early, to be in place to join the minute's silence, on what marks the 50th anniversary of the disaster in the South Wales valleys.
 
After the game, both wreaths will be transferred to the Aberfan Memorial Garden.
