Imps support Hillsborough campaign

Lincoln City Football Club has added its support to the ‘Hillsborough Law Now’ campaign, which calls for changes to the legal system to prevent others facing the barriers and miscarriages of justice suffered by families of the 97.

The new law would compel public officials to be truthful at inquiries into public tragedies, plus offers support for bereaved families to receive legal representation at inquests.

Imps chairman Clive Nates said: “The events of the Hillsborough Disaster and the ongoing injustices suffered by the families of the 97 has resonated with so many who follow the game and the courage and dignity of those fighting for justice has been inspirational.

“I’m proud to lead a club that recognises the struggle of the Hillsborough campaigners and hope our support helps in the struggle to ensure that no one again has to suffer like the families of the 97 in their long battle for the truth about one of the darkest days in British football.”
