Remembrance Day 2018…

Ahead of Armistice Day, veterans also showed their support for those who fought and lost their lives in World War 1 by planting two commemorative trees outside Cardiff City Stadium.

Provided by the Premier League and the Woodlands Trust, the two trees were to remember Tom Witts and Wally Stewart who sacrificed their lives fighting for their country.
