Dalglish launches Hillsborough charity match

Kop legend Kenny Dalglish announced that a Hillsborough memorial match will be staged at Anfield on May 14 reports today’s Guardian. All proceeds will go to the Marina Dalglish Appeal and its attempt to raise £5m towards a new £17.2m radiotherapy unit at University Hospital in Aintree. Players involved in the 1989 FA Cup semi-final between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest, plus finalists Everton, will be among those taking part in a game that will see Jamie Carragher coach an All-Stars team and the former Liverpool reserve goalkeeper Paul Harrison, who lost his father and uncle in the disaster, appearing for Liverpool Legends. Talking about the disaster Dalglish said “It was something everyone wishes never happened but it is something that should never be forgotten, and I don't think it ever will. The 20th anniversary has been poignant and it has showed people that it is not going to go away."

Tickets for the Hillsborough Memorial Game in aid of the Marina Dalglish Appeal are on sale now from the ticket office at Anfield, Liverpool's official website and the credit card booking line: 0844 844 0844.
