Every year on the 15th of April, the football world comes together. The world game stops worldwide and remembers those who were lost on that day at Hillsborough in 1989. A day where 96 football fans followed their team to a match and never returned. Every year, on this day, rivalries are lost and all focus turns to remorse, in remembrance of the fans that never returned. In a day where football is so important, some things are more important than football.
So if you’re a player, family, a fan or anyone at all involved in this wonderful football club, remember the 96 who lost their lives at Hillsborough and most importantly remember, You’ll Never Walk Alone.
A banner reading Truth and Justice is hung from Liverpool’s Saint George’s Hall and illuminated in red after today’s Hillsborough inquest verdict on April 26, 2016 in Liverpool, England. The fresh inquests into the 1989 Hillsborough disaster, in which 96 football supporters were crushed to death, concluded today on April 26, 2016 with a verdict of unlawful killing, after the initial verdicts were quashed. Relatives of Liverpool supporters who died in Britain’s worst sporting disaster gathered in the purpose-built court to hear the jury’s verdict in Warrington after a 25 year fight to overturn the accidental death verdicts handed down at the initial 1991 inquiry.
