REMEMBERING THE 97
This Saturday represents the 34th anniversary of the Hillsborough disaster and the 97 Liverpool supporters who lost their lives in 1989 will be remembered. Wreaths on behalf of the Brewers and Wednesday will be laid on the pitch before kick-off by the managers, Dino Maamria and Darren Moore, followed by a minute’s applause. The players from both clubs and match officials will wear black armbands.
