Exeter City remember Hillsborough with a classy gesture ahead of Liverpool FA Cup tie

People may scoff at the so-called 'magic' of the FA Cup, but it's hard to deny it at moments like this.

Exeter City face Liverpool at the weekend looking to cause a sensational upset, but with a simple gesture they will have won the respect of Reds fans the world over.

The club's match programme for home games, The Grecian, is normally 82 pages long but in tribute to the Liverpool fans who lost their lives in the 1989 Hillsborough disaster, the programme for Friday's game will include 96 pages.

Oliver Roderick, Exeter City Media Manager, told the Exeter Express and Echo: "This was always going to be a larger edition and we couldn't think of a more fitting tribute then making it 96 pages. We have already received huge orders for it."

Fans have reacted warmly to the news of the kind gesture.
