Our first home game is against Walsall on August 15th.

3 Walsall supporters were tragically killed in last weeks terrorist attack in Tunisia, 38 people were killed in total.

We ask all supporters in attendance on the 15th August to join us in a minutes applause on the 38th minute as we pay our respects to those lives lost. Thank you.

Nice touch which I'm sure will be honoured.....

That's a great gesture.
Would be good if the club announced this and also put in the programme for those not on the zone.

A chance to put a side all football rivalries and remember the 3 Walsall fans and the other 35 killed in this evil act

What great people football supporters are when the chips are down. This is an excellent gesture. R.I.P all those poor souls.

Personally, this is one of those occasions where I think it would be better before the match. Sometimes these ones during the match get a bit lost.

I have commented elsewhere, at times like this the football family stands together, especially amongst the lower leagues.

I was at the Essex v Australians match today where a minute's silence at midday was immaculately observed for those murdered in Tunisia. A silent tribute seems to me far more appropriate in this situation than applause.
Just a personal opinion.

I'm sorry if this seems a bit callous but the first game is weeks away. Tragic as the events are the moment will have been well and truly lost by then.

We are all entitled to opinions I suppose, but I think you are so wrong Orm.
