Hillsborough Disaster Solicitors Want To Talk To Newcastle Fans Who Were At The Semi In 1974

NEWCASTLE v BURNLEY

FA CUP SEMI-FINAL 1974

HILLSBOROUGH STADIUM

EAD Solicitors currently act on behalf of family members who lost loved ones at the Hillsborough Stadium Disaster.

It is widely known that prior to the Hillsborough Stadium Disaster away fans of other clubs who had attended the stadium had suffered problems of overcrowding on the Leppings Lane terraces.

During the 1981 F.A. Cup semi-final in particular, Spurs fans narrowly avoided a disaster. On this occasion however the South Yorkshire Police responded to the danger of

crushing and opened the perimeter fences, allowing approximately 250 Spurs fans access to the pitch to use the pitch as a place of safety. Although many

fans suffered broken arms and wrists, thankfully fatalities were avoided.

Everton and Aston Villa also played a League Cup semi-final at Hillsborough the same year and we understand through staff members who attended the 1977 replay, that overcrowding was an issue for them also.

We are currently looking for Newcastle and Burnley fans who attended the game in 1974 and are willing to be interviewed about their experiences at Hillsborough stadium and whether they reported their experiences at all.

Information from people giving statements is to be shared amongst the various firms acting on behalf of the families and survivors in order that no information is left out. The sharing of information makes for a united and coordinated front and gives everyone the best chance of making their words count.

If you think you are able to provide any evidence at all please do not hesitate to come forward. Please visit our website or call 0151 735 1000 and ask for Sean McCann, Terry Wilcox , Thom Vaughan or Poppy Ball.

Thank you for your help.
