Aldridge explained how exited all the ex-players were before the match, how they were pumped up for the game just to watch it. “Something I’ve never seen before” remarked Kennedy.

“That minute’s silence before the match was incredible, absolutely incredible.”

Commenting on the match, Evans said “For times in the second half I couldn’t see how we were going to win it, but always felt we would somehow.”

The lads were at Melwood on Monday for a 7-a-side against Liverpool press and recorded this week’s podcast from The Reds’ training ground.

Afterwards, Liverpool’s pitchside announcer Peter McDowall got the thoughts of Jan Molby, Ronnie Whelan, Rob Jones and Michael Thomas ahead of Easter Monday’s Hillsborough Memorial match.
