WEST HAM will sport a special one-off shirt on Sunday against Everton to commemorate Remembrance Day.

All the shirts worn on the day will be auctioned off for the Poppy Appeal, while there will be a special plaque unveiled on the morning of the match.

Sir Trevor Brooking will join members of the Royal British Legion, club officials, supporters and members of the Royal Anglian Regiment for the unveiling of the plaque in memory of the members of the 13th Battalion (West Ham) The Essex Regiment who died during World War One.

The plaque will be erected at the main entrance of the West Stand at 10.30am, while wreaths will also be laid.

Following the ceremony, a reception will be held in the West Ham Supporters' Club in Castle Street, while there will also be a minute's silence before kick-off at 3pm.
