A football club has paid its respects to the soldiers who gave their lives for their country 100 years on by spray painting a large poppy onto its pitch.
Chatham Town FC, who play at the Maidstone Road Sports Ground, in Bournville Avenue, Chatham, had the tribute done before they faced off against Sheppey United FC in the Southern Counties East Football League on Saturday.
A wreath was laid by Medway Labour Group leader, Vince Maple, before a minute's silence was shared between the two teams.
Cllr Maple said: "It was a real privilege to be part of the Remembrance events at Chatham Town FC today laying a wreath before the start of the game.
"The club has a proud history of being focused on community activities and today they took time to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice so future generations could enjoy freedoms like watching football on a Saturday afternoon."
As part of the Armistice Day commemoration at The Chats, all serving and retired military personnel, and emergency services were given free entry to the stadium.
Chatham FC lost the game 1-0 and now sit in sixth place in the Premier division of the Southern Counties East Football League.
