I was thirty six at the time. Still playing, and during our game, was getting messages there was trouble at Hillsborough. At the time it was thought to be hooligans, then we heard that lives had been lost and as an exiled scouse was thinking. ’ WTF we don’t need this’
After the game the truth unfolded and everyone was mortified. Just total silence in the club house following the updates and feeling totally helpless.
Horrible, horrible day, etched in my memory.
Had family in the stand, who’s wife decided not to go. If she had they would have been together in leppings lane in stead !
Swapped their tickets 2 for 1.
Never known if the ‘two’ perished that day or not.
Not sure I want to know to be fair.
96 wasted lives due to incompetence and arrogance of the highest order.
