Liverpool's upcoming FA Cup opponents Exeter City have paid tribute to victims of the Hillsborough tragedy by producing a special 96-page programme for Friday's fixture.

The Grecians' programme usually consists of 82 pages, but the club have decided to up that number in memory of the 96 people who lost their lives in the 1989 tragedy.

Lovely gesture from @OfficialECFC - thank you. https://t.co/edxJHgp1uK

"This was always going to be a larger edition and we couldn’t think of a more fitting tribute than making it 96 pages," Exeter City media manager Oliver Roderick told the Liverpool Echo (via the Mirror). “We have already received huge orders for it."

Nice touch.
