Chelsea Football Club has donated the commemorative shirts used in Sunday's win over Manchester United to help raise funds for the Poppy Appeal.

The shirts, which have a special poppy embroidered on the front, have been given to the Royal British Legion and were worn by the Blues during yesterday's 1-0 win.

To mark Remembrance Sunday, representatives from across the armed forces were joined by Chelsea Pensioners at Stamford Bridge to observe a minute's silence before kick off.

The club also donated 200 tickets to the Royal British Legion for the game and 50 members of the Armed Forces collected for the 2009 Poppy Appeal outside the stadium before and after the match.

After raising around £9,500 from donations, community fundraiser for the Poppy Appeal, Graham Akins said: 'We collected more than we expected and everyone was really supportive and helpful.

'It is really nice for the boys who are coming back from Iraq and Afghanistan to have the opportunity to go out and collect for the Poppy Appeal because it means a lot to them.

'But to also feel the support that came across from Chelsea through the fans was brilliant.

'The pre-match ceremony was really moving as well and everyone really appreciated what was said.'

Of the remaining 150 military personnel past and present were the son, Conor, and ex-partner, Natalie, of the most highly-decorated British soldier to die in Afghanistan, dedicated Chelsea fan Michael Lockett.

The specially embroidered shirts were worn by the Blues as we beat Manchester United 1-0 and increased our lead over the Red Devils to five points in the league.

There are 11 shirts for auction in total, two of which are available until Wednesday, while the auction for the remaining nine ends on Friday (13 November).

All money raised will go towards the Poppy Appeal, which helps raise funds for men and women from the armed forces and their families, offering financial, social and emotional support through the Royal British Legion charity.

The club began our backing for the annual fundraising by the Royal British Legion by hosting members of the armed forces who have been deployed in Afghanistan at Cobham.

Captain John Terry and Joe Cole were among the players who greeted the servicemen at our Surrey training ground.

Lance Corporal Tom Neathway, a lifelong Chelsea fan who lost both legs and an arm while on duty for the Parachute Regiment was one of them.
