Lincoln City remembers - 11 May 1985

11 May 2024

City will fall silent across social media on Saturday as we mark the 39th anniversary of the Valley Parade Disaster.

On a day which should have been remembered for the success of Bradford City winning the Division Three trophy, which was lifted pre-match by the Bantams captain and eventual City manager Peter Jackson, the day of celebration turned to a day of tragedy.

A fire at Valley Parade engulfed the main stand resulting in the tragic death of lifelong Imps Bill Stacey and Jim West along with 54 Bradford City supporters, who will always remain in our hearts.

Please take time to remember those who lost their lives on 11 May 1985 - our thoughts go out to the family and friends of all who have been affected.
