      Final Hillsborough Service at Anfield - 15th April 2020
      Feb 26, 2020 11:18:13 am
      Announced by the club and families that last year that this year would be the last at Anfield

      Kind of a bittersweet bookend that the reds were the reigning Champions when Hillsborough happened, and are likely to be Champions for this final service.

      This year, the final memorial service to be held at Anfield will commemorate the lives of the 96 supporters who died in the tragedy.

      The service will commence at 2.45pm, with access to the stadium possible from 1pm. A minute’s silence will be observed at 3.06pm and the service will conclude at around 3.45pm with the singing of You’ll Never Walk Alone.

      Tickets to the Hillsborough memorial service will be available from Wednesday February 26 at 9am GMT and can be obtained free of charge by visiting www.liverpoolfc.com/tickets or the ticket office at Anfield. Alternatively, you can call us on 0151 264 2500.

      In the interests of safety, and to plan accordingly, all those wishing to attend the memorial service must obtain a ticket no later than Tuesday March 31.

      Margaret Aspinall, chair of the Hillsborough Family Support Group, said: “The 31st anniversary Hillsborough memorial service will be the last service ever to be held at Anfield stadium, which was a decision made by the families after much consideration.

      “Going forward, the families of the 96 will continue to remember their loved ones each and every day as well as in their own way on the anniversary.

      “To enable us to plan accordingly for the service we would urge you to obtain your ticket as early as possible and we have put a closing date of Tuesday March 31. Please only request a ticket if you plan on attending the service to avoid disappointing other people who wish to attend.

      “For many, April 15 will be a working day and there will be those who are unable to attend. We invite you to join us in thought and prayers at this difficult time.”

       Thoughts also with their families and friends, a tough day in normal circumstances but especially so at this time, when families cannot be together. YNWA.

       Thankfully my son did come back but the piece below tells of the appalling tragedy so many families had to bear.
      I have tears in my eyes like when he did come home that day and he has never spoken of the horror he witnessed all them years ago.

      The anniversaries are always difficult for the families and friends but it must be really tough today for those people who can't have someone put their arm around them.

      RIP.

      Had my minutes silence at 3.06pm as I felt the tears pr**k my eyes, then I played You'll Never Walk Alone.

      Thinking of all the families who lost a loved one that fateful day.

      We will never ever forget.

      RIP the 96 YNWA
