Statement on a minute’s silence for Margaret Thatcher

This is a story from the FSF archive – the FSF and SD merged to become the FSA in 2019.

“The FSF backs the decision made by the football authorities not to impose a minute’s silence across all fixtures this weekend to mark the death of Margaret Thatcher. Should individual clubs wish to hold a minute’s silence or commemorate the passing of Margaret Thatcher in their own manner that is a matter for them.

“We would expect that most fans’ thoughts this weekend will turn to the friends and families of those 96 fellow supporters who lost their lives at Hillsborough 24 years ago.”

Malcolm Clarke, FSF Chair
