FC Voices to lay remembrance wreath on Saturday morning

Jack Harrison scored 106 tries in 116 games for Hull FC.


Over the History of our great Club there have been many members of the Hull FC family, fans, players and officials who have given their life for their country in two World Wars and the many other conflicts that have taken place. It is important that their sacrifice is remembered and to that end FC Voices conduct an annual wreath laying ceremony in their name.

Lisa Jewitt, Chairman of FC Voices comments said, “As fans this is our annual opportunity to ensure that we remember all those who have been associated with the Club and who have fallen in the name of their country.”

This year in remembrance of all those who gave their life for our country, and in honour of our most famous and decorated player, the Club Chaplain the Reverend Tony Cotson will officiate at a short wreath laying ceremony at the Jack Harrison memorial at the KC Stadium. This will take place at 11am on Saturday 7th November, which is the eve of Remembrance Sunday.

“There is certainly nowhere better to do it than at the Jack Harrison Memorial, which of course celebrates our Clubs greatest hero”, added Lisa.

“It’s only a short ceremony, but everyone is welcome and FC Voices hope that as many fans as possible will come along to help us remember those of ‘our own’ who gave so much for their country.”
