Never forget walking off the pitch at the Imperial Ground and asking what the s ore was, and being told what was going on.  Awful day for football, much, much worse day for those families and friends who didn’t return, and also those scarred by the events that day.

RIP all.

What struck me was that news filtered out slowly. On the radio  "Kick off is delayed due to a disturbance in the crowd" Whereas TV was showing what was happening.

I also remember that on the Monday morning at work, no one mentioned it, I think due more to shock than apathy.
