Not only will service men and women be in attendance, but there will also be an array of genuine military vehicles and equipment to observe.

Salford Red Devils director Paul King had this to say on the club’s official website:

“We’re really thankful for this opportunity to celebrate our Armed Forces.

“There’s set to be plenty of activity for supporters to engage with, as part of a fun day out.

“Most importantly, we’re excited to welcome plenty of real-life heroes and want to give them the respect and gratitude they deserve.”

Colour Sergeant Alan Boyle, is from The Mercian Regiment, and believes that the day put on by the Red Devils is a great opportunity for the service men and women to mix with the fans.

“The opportunity to engage with the public is always important for the army.

“We’re really glad that Salford Red Devils are giving us the opportunity to do that, as well as the chance to come together with the other Armed Forces.

“Supporters will have plenty of chance to meet us all on the day and get first hand experience of the vehicles and equipment we use.”
