Baptiste plays part in poppy tribute

12 November 2014

Rovers star Alex Baptiste was shown a red card - but all for a good cause!

The versatile defender was the guest of honour at Witton Park Academy, who were staging Blackburn's biggest poppy event.

The 28-year-old joined over 1,100 pupils at the school to form a giant human poppy as part of a Remembrance Day tribute.

Baptiste said: "It was quite emotional and a real privilege to be part of such a special event. The kids had obviously been learning about the World Wars and it's important that we pay our respects to those that lost their lives serving this country."
