Everton Planning On A Hillsborough Memorial At Goodison Park

Everton Football Club are planning to have permanent Hillsborough memorial at their stadium to remember the 96 Liverpool fans who died in the tragedy. The club claimed they had a “commitment” to reveal the Goodison Park memorial for the 25th anniversary next month.

A club spokesman said that, Talks are being held for a number of months with an Everton fan whose brother died during the 15 April 1989 disaster. Fresh analysis will be held in Warrington on Monday. Mark Rowan, head of media at the club, said: “Evertonians and the club have always stood shoulder to shoulder with the families of the Hillsborough victims during their long fight for justice and we feel it is fitting that our home should have a permanent tribute to the 96.”

The supporters were squeezed during an FA Cup semi-final between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest at Sheffield Wednesday’s stadium. Original accidental death analysis verdict were canceled in 2012 following an independent report.
Following the report’s publication, Liverpool’s rivals paid tribute to the Hillsborough families ahead of a match at Goodison Park.
