The FA Cup

Hillsborough remembered: Photos from around the grounds in respect to Liverpool fans

With this weekend's fixtures coming 25 years after the Hillsborough disaster, football clubs around the country honoured the victims.

Ahead of Tuesday's 25 years anniversary, grounds all over the country paid their respects to the 96 Liverpool fans who tragically lost their lives at Hillsborough.

Every football fan can relate to the tragedy of what happened in Sheffield on 15th April 1989. It was a FA Cup semi-final between Liverpool and Nottingham hosted at Sheffield Wednesday's Hillsborough stadium. It should have been a time of great excitement and great joy, just like yesterday's and today's semi-finals at Wembley surely were.

Instead it was one of the darkest days of English football. A crush before kickoff and during the first few minutes of the game led to the deaths of 96 Liverpool fans and injuries to 766 others. That so many people, men, women and children, could go to a football match to watch their team and not return home will forever be a sadness for the city of Liverpool, and all attached to the game.

The incident changed football in this country, all seater stadiums were made compulsory at league clubs, while the events themselves are still being investigated.

But on Saturday and Sunday, grounds around the country remembered the 96, and the message was a unanimous one.

You'll never walk alone.
