Always Remember 35 Years On
By Bradford City Supporters Trust, May 11 2020 09:04AM
On the 11th May 1985 we were supposed to be celebrating our league championship, eagerly looking forward to our return to Division 2 after a 58-year absence, but instead, 56 fans never returned home as a result of the devastating events of that day.
Today, 35 years on, despite the uncertain situation we find ourselves in due to the Coronavirus lock-down, our traditional mark of respect of that fateful day will see tributes and solidarity from football supporters all over the world. They will be at one with us in commemoration and respect for all those who died, or were injured, and for families who lost loved ones.
We extend arms out to all those paying their respects today as we strive to ensure that football never has to witness such tragic event again. Our condolences go out today on behalf of Bantams Supporters Trust.
With best wishes,
From the Bantams Trust Board
SOMETIMES IT SEEMS TO BE A FORGOTTEN TRAGEDY ..... SADLY.
BUT AMONGST THE REAL FOOTBALL FRATERNITY IT NEVER WILL BE.
REST IN PEACE THE 56.
FROM A MANSFIELD TOWN AND REAL FOOTBALL FAN.
Sending thoughts and prayers to all whose lives were forever changed by the Bradford City Disaster, from a Hillsborough survivor
