VIDEO: Remembrance weekend marked as South Yorkshire football clubs pay tribute to the fallen

South Yorkshire clubs joined the rest of the UK on Saturday, in paying their respects to those who made the ultimate sacrifice.

Football grounds fell silent in a moment of remembrance for servicemen and women who lost their lives in conflict, ahead of Sheffield United's match against Worcester City; Wednesday's match at The Valley against Charlton; Barnsley's game at Altrincham; Rotherham's home encounter with Ipswich and Doncaster Rovers' FA Cup tie with Stalybridge Celtic.

At Bramall Lane, the special guests were Yorkshire and Humberside Army Cadet Force who held a bucket collection outside the ground, performed a guard of honour for the players and laid a poppy wreath on the pitch before the game.
