Liverpool FC players and staff pay respects at Anfield’s Hillsborough memorial

Liverpool’s first-team, Women and Academy players & staff visited Anfield today to pay their respect to the victims of the Hillsborough tragedy.

It is 30 years on since the awful disaster that took place in the Liverpool supporting section section during the FA Cup semi-final against Nottingham Forest on April 15, 1989.

96 Liverpool supporters tragically lost their lives on a day that should have solely been about about celebration.

The club issued a statement before all the various squads and staff visited the Hillsborough memorial at Anfield.

The statement read: “Liverpool Football Club remembers the 96 supporters who died at Hillsborough, on the 30th anniversary of the disaster. As a result of the events on April 15, 1989, at the FA Cup semi-final between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest, 96 children, women and men lost their lives.

“For the past three decades, the bereaved families and survivors of the tragedy have demonstrated remarkable courage, dignity and resilience. In April 2016, an inquest jury concluded that the 96 were unlawfully killed and that no role was played by the supporters in causing the disaster.

“Our thoughts are with all those affected by the tragedy at Hillsborough and the 96 fans who will never be forgotten.”

On the 30th anniversary of the tragedy, there will be a private service inside a room at Anfield Stadium for families and survivors to bereave their lost ones.

In memory of the Liverpool supporters who went to watch their beloved Reds but never returned. May their soul rest in peace and never be forgotten.
