As a mark of respect and remembrance for those who lost their lives as a result of the Hillsborough stadium disaster in April 1989, Saturday’s (12th of April) match against Whitby Town at The Autoworld Arena will kick off at 15:07.

Following an initiative by the FA, the Evo Stik NPL has asked all matches taking place this weekend to kick off seven minutes later than normal.

The match at which the disaster took place, the FA Cup Semi-Final between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest on 15 April 1989, was ended six minutes after kick-off, at 3:06pm.
