Everton Pay Incredible Hillsborough Tribute To Liverpool With Match Programme Cover

Everton Pay Incredible Hillsborough Tribute To Liverpool With Match Programme Cover

Everton have continued to show their support for Liverpool fans this week in their pursuit of justice for the Hillsborough Disaster victims.

Rival fans – in their red and blue – united on Merseyside in a touching tribute vigil to the 96 fans who lost their lives in the 1989 tragedy.

They chanted and sang together after a jury ruled that the Liverpool fans were in fact killed unlawfully and that there were police failings at the FA Cup semi-final between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest.

And the Toffees have today revealed that they intend to pay their respects further by featuring the iconic picture of two young Everton and Liverpool fans hand-in-hand on their match programme ahead of their Premier League match against Bournemouth at Goodison on Saturday.

The caption on the programme reads: “Everton Football Club salutes the Hillsborough families and their total vindication as Fighters for Justice. Theirs is the greatest victory in the history of football. RIP, the 96.”
