He told n The Mirror that the memorial service marking the 25th anniversary, which took place this week, had been hugely touching and "we used words from Margaret Aspinall, where she said, ‘Stress is difficult but also good because it gives you a determination to fight. Before the game we stuck those words on the wall. This is a club that is at one with those who fought to achieve their ultimate goal".
