Lightning players to wear jerseys honouring Armistice centenary
Sunday 11 November will see the centenary of the end of the First World War, when hostilities between the Allies and German forces ended at 11am on 11th November, 1918.
To mark this occasion, the Smith Recycling Milton Keynes Lightning players will wear one-off jerseys at our home match against Cardiff Devils on Saturday 10 November, which supporters can own and loan. These commemorative jerseys will have their owner’s name on the reverse and will be presented to them after the game.
In a first for MKL, instead of emailing the Supporters’ Club to apply to own and loan a jersey, each one will be made available in the online store section of our website - https://www.mk-lightning.co.uk - from midday Sunday 14 October. Only one jersey will be available per player and no replicas will be available.
All profits will go direct to the Lightning, to help meet ongoing running costs of keeping the team at the top level of our sport in the UK.
To raise funds for the Royal British Legion, our match on 10 November will see a one-off Remembrance Sunday commemorative jersey as the prize in our “Natty’s Grid” prize draw. Instead of a player’s name the shirt will feature simply the word “Remember” and instead of a player’s number it will carry “11-11”. Entries will be just £1 each available from one of the Supporters’ Club fund raisers in the Arena on the night. Entries will also be available online via the club’s new website - watch out for details coming soon!
