On the day of the Hillsborough Disaster, West Ham United played Southampton in a division one match at Upton Park. The match ended with the visitors winning 1-2.
As a part of my documentary about the Hillsborough disaster which unfolded as this game was taking place, I am asking fans of all clubs to contribute with their thoughts & recollections of that awful day.
Maybe you were at this match or following it on the television or radio? Maybe you had been to Hillsborough previously, and have a story to tell about that?
Spurs & Leeds fans have told their stories about crushing in the ’81 and ’87 semi-finals at Hillsborough, and I have heard from a Man Utd fan who had a terrible experience at the ground in a league game. Some Coventry fans may have been at this game and the 1981 semi-final in which Spurs fans were crushed, thankfully, not fatally?
Whatever you have to say, I’d be grateful if you could leave a reply with your thoughts – please just scroll down for the reply box.
