The 17th anniversary of the Hillsborough Disaster will again be remembered with a special memorial service to be held at Anfield on Saturday, 15th April.
The service, organised by the Hillsborough Family Support Group, always draws in many fans wishing to remember the 96 fans who died in the tragic FA Cup semi-final of 1989.
Fans will gather on the Kop at 2.45pm with a minute’s silence and a rendition of ‘˜You’ll Never Walk Alone’. At the service there will be readings of remembrance from victims family members, club officials and Liverpool players Steven Gerrard and Robbie Fowler.
Fans are urged to turn up as it is not ticketed but have been advised on the limited parking in the area as Everton play Tottenham Hotspur at home at 3pm on the same day.
Phil Hammond, the chairman of the HFSG said, “We light a candle to remember each individual life that was extinguished prematurely and we rely upon the eternal flame of the Hillsborough Memorial to burn some light into the darkest night.”
Liverpool’s Premiership match against Blackburn Rovers at Ewood Park on April 16th will feature a minute’s silence before the match.
