Everton FC Hillsborough 96 Tribute VIDEO BELOW- September 17, 2012

Everton FC today paid an emotional tribute to the 96 victims of the 1989 Hillsborough disaster prior to kickoff of their league fixture against Newcastle United at Goodison Park on 17 September, 2012. The Toffees’ Hillsborough tribute saw two mascots- a young girl dressed in Everton blue ( with the number 9 on her back) and a small boy in the red of neighbours Liverpool ( with the number 6 on his back), come together before the commencement of the game as they led the players out of the tunnel.

He Ain’t Heavy… He’s My Brother ( the Hollies song) played from the speakers accompanied by a photo collage of the victims and the words “Merseyside United” on the big screen as the Goodison crowd, David Moyes and Sir Alex Ferguson among them, paid tribute to the 96 victims of the disaster.

    Touching gesture by Everton…There are things more important than football in life.. i love Liverpool through and through, and despite the intense rivalry on the pitch, i cant express how emotional the song and the tribute paid by Everton walk hand in hand… Good job Everton.

    I have supported everton for well over sixty years, forty of them from overseas in NZ. and Oz., there have been a lot of ups and downs but I would defy anyone to say that any football club worldwide can capture these kind of moments better than the Toffees. I think the reason is that Everton seem to sum up football supporters aspirations in these sometimes solemn occasions. I just want to say that I am proud to be an Evertonian especially at times like these.
    god bless the Hillsborough 96, their families and friends.
