The magnitude of the events of the Hillsborough Stadium disaster are not confined to our club and are indeed a football-wide issue.
Ahead of the game between England and Germany’s Under-21 sides, the visitors to Sheffield laid flowers and paid their respects at the memorial outside the stadium.
It was a real sign of class by Antonio Di Salvo’s team and it’s important that the next generation are also made aware of what happened in 1989.
