Lincoln City Remember - 11th May 1985

11 May 2020

Please take time today to remember those who sadly lost their lives in the Bradford City fire disaster 35 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 (who later managed the Imps) was presented with the Division Three championship trophy.

But a day of celebration turned to a day of tragedy when a fire engulfed the main stand at Valley Parade. Fifty-six supporters, including two City fans - Bill Stacey and Jim West - tragically died as a result of the fire.
 
Our thoughts go out to the family and friends of all who lost their lives. 
 
Today, club staff and members of the first-team squad will fall silent across social media, as we pay our respects to remember them.
