PUMA football are showing their support for the Royal British Legion this weekend by applying poppies to Carrick, Lallana and Caulker’s boots.

Michael Carrick: “As players, we have the greatest admiration and respect for the men and women of the armed forces, both serving and veterans. Wearing the poppy on our boots is our way of showing our gratitude and respect, I’m proud to do so and support the Royal British Legion this weekend.”

Adam Lallana: “As club captain, I’m aware of Southampton’s military history. I feel very proud to wear the poppy on my boots and support the Royal British Legion. A lot of our fans are serving themselves or have family who are. With the support they give us all season on the pitch, it’s important we take the opportunity to remember the serving members of the armed forces.”

Steven Caulker: “I’m proud to wear the poppy on my boots, and support the Royal British Legion who play an invaluable role in supporting serving members of the armed forces, veterans of all ages and their families.”
