Remembered! 5 incredible World War 1 football stories you need to know about
It's more than 100 years since the outbreak of the Great War that affected so many lives. And November 18, specifically, marks the end of one of the bloodiest conflicts ever fought: the Battle of the Somme. The Woodland Trust and the National Football Museum have teamed up and are remembering some of the footballers and teams who took part in the Great War via this interactive list…
Click on the images below to reveal five must-know stories from the time, involving well-known teams and how football was an integral piece of life even 100 years ago, and especially for the courageous men and women on the front lines.
The Woodland Trust is working alongside the National Football museum in Manchester as part of their First World War Centenary Woods project. They hope that football fans will make a donation to create a living tribute to all the footballers involved in the war through planting football groves in their First World War Centenary Wood.
