Hillsborough Remembrance

11 April 2014

AS a mark of remembrance for those who lost their lives in tragic circumstances in April 1989, Saturday's Football Conference fixture against Chester will kick-off 7 minutes later than originally scheduled.

The match at which the disaster took place - the FA Cup semi-final between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest on 15th April 1989 - was ended 6 minutes after kick-off, at 3:06pm.

All Football Conference matches due to kick-off at 3pm on Saturday, 12th April will now kick off at 3:07pm, with the minute before kick-off (3:06pm to 3:07pm) seeing a period of silence observed at all grounds.
