Teams from the North Valley and Burnley Unity Youth Football League took part in #footballremembers week.

Rivalries were put to one side as the world of football united to commemorate the centenary of the 1914 Christmas Truce.

The stories of widespread, unofficial ceasefires across the Western Front in 1914 have been retold through generations, and remain one of the most poignant examples of humanity overcoming the most harrowing of circumstances.

To mark the anniversary, every professional team – and teams at all other levels of the game – began the week-long Football Remembers initiative to recognise the spirit shown on the battlefields 100 years ago.
