Fallen soldiers remembered by Penistone Church

27th October, 2019

Toolstation NCEL Premier Division side Penistone Church have set up a page on their website that commemorates former players who lost their lives in the First World War.

Ahead of Armistice Day on Monday 11th November, 2019, their remembrance page currently lists four who made the greatest sacrifice in the conflict that lasted between 1914 and 1918.

Private Wilfred Barlow, Sergeant Charles Albert Burman DCM, Corporal John Clarkson and Private Frank Herbert Peace fell aged just 29, 26, 28 and 31, respectively.

The club will remember the quartet at a ceremony prior to their home league game with Maltby Main on Saturday (2nd) whilst a plaque and a framed article will be put up at the ground as a constant reminder.

Their website feature has already gained a lot of interest with the BBC looking to include it as part of their remembrance programming and Penistone are looking for more information from family members about the four men's lives.

They are also urging other NCEL clubs to join them in their research and uncover more players who should be remembered.
