Did you know that by the spring of 1915, around 200 professional players with connections to more than 60 present-day Premier League and Football League clubs had stepped up to fight in the First World War?  The Woodland Trust and National Football Museum have collaborated with the British Army Football Association to create a tribute video to their bravery and sacrifice.

Watch the tribute video below or for more information visit the For Club and Country website.
