Here is the Wolverhampton Councillors that played in that 1988 Game, some are still around. But I doubt they could last 90 mins now!

Councillor Phil Bateman Archives – Following the Hillsborough disaster the Wolverhampton Councillors and Sheffield City Councillors arranged a Charity Game at Wolverhampton Wanderers. I found this programme in the archives of Sheffield City Council.

Dear Supporter,

Thank you for buying this programme. I do hope that you enjoy the football

on show. The importance of this event is clear for all to see, as it will benefit

both the Hillsborough Appeal, and a hard working local charity.

It is fitting at this time that the links between our two footballing towns,

Wolverhampton and Sheffield, are strengthened by raising money for such

worthy causes.

I mention the very generous donations that have been made by the

local Companies listed overleaf. Their sponsorship of this event, and that of

many, many local people, is much appreciated.

Norman Davies- Leader, Wolverhampton Borough Council.

—-

The tragedy of Hillsborough has deeply shocked the whole of Sheffield

but, particularly, those with a love for and an attachment to the game.

Those people who died also loved their football; and we should

therefore continue to enjoy our game while, at the same time,

remembering them. They lived for football, so let us ensure that

football continues to live in memory of them.

Clive Betts

Leader, Sheffield City Council

——

Wolverhampton Council would like to express

their sincere thanks to all our sponsors of

todays game and their contributions to the

Charity Appeal
