The memorial service to remember the 96 Liverpool supporters who died in the Hillsborough tragedy 25 years ago has been given prominence in Wednesday's newspapers.
Tony Barrett of The Times (subscription required) offered the poignant story of Victoria Hicks, who wrote Liverpool match reports after games.
The 15-year-old lost her life on the Leppings Lane terraces, and her parents only discovered the articles after her passing.
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers spoke movingly of his respect for the victims and their families during the memorial service at Anfield, as Dominic King of the Daily Mail reported.
I’m surrounded every day of my life by inspiration. I walk in (to Melwood) every day past the statue of Bill Shankly and the European Cup. We train on the pitch graced by all the great names. Within my team I have some fantastic players of true greatness.
You don’t struggle for inspiration when you’re Liverpool manager, working for this great football club. But without doubt the single biggest source of inspiration for me is every match day at Anfield, when I arrive at this ground and see the memorial and the 96 names, 96 individuals who were loved, cherished and went all too soon.
Those we lost. You are the true inspiration for us. Mothers and fathers, brothers and sisters, sons and daughters, friends and supporters.
You’ve all stayed together to fight for the name of those you’ve lost. That’s what inspires me every day of my life.
Everton manager Roberto Martinez also spoke at the service, as Jeremy Wilson of the Daily Telegraph reported.
I was only 15 in April 1989, a football-mad kid in a football-mad family, like any of you today.
We could not believe or comprehend the horror of receiving the news their loved ones would not come home from a football match.
What happened afterwards was not right or fair but, as my chairman said last year, they took on the wrong city. I do not have to tell you that Everton are with you. Everton remembers. We will always.
