May 11 1985 - LCFC Remembers

11 May 2014

Please take time out today to remember those who lost their lives in the Bradford City fire disaster 29 years ago today.

Saturday 11th May 1985 was a day that should have gone down in Bradford City history for all the right reasons as, prior to kick-off in their final game of the season against the Imps, their skipper Peter Jackson - later, of course, to become manager here at Sincil Bank - was presented with the Division Three championship trophy.

But a day of celebration turned to a day of tragedy when fire engulfed the main stand at Valley Parade. Fifty-six supporters, including two City fans - Bill Stacey and Jim West - died as a result of the fire.

Our thoughts go out to the family and friends of them all.
