10 April 2014

Supporters are reminded that as a mark of respect and remembrance for those who lost their lives as a result of the Hillsborough stadium disaster in April 1989, our game v Mansfield Town this Saturday will kick-off at 3.07pm.

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

In the Premier League, Football League, and Football Conference, matches due to kick-off at 3pm on Saturday 12 April will now kick off seven minutes later than scheduled, with the minute before kick-off (3:06pm to 3:07pm) seeing a period of silence observed at all stadia.
