Everton-focused Twitter account @ForeverEverton0 tweeted pictures of a banner that was displayed in the away end at Hillsborough with the message ‘Two clubs, one city’.

The banner also included a reference to the number 96, which was the number of Liverpool supporters who lost their lives in a crush at the stadium in 1989 when attending an FA Cup semi-final against Nottingham Forest, as noted by BBC.

As a club, Everton have demonstrated solidarity with the families and friends of those who died in the Hillsborough disaster on multiple occasions.

Tributes were paid at a match at Goodison Park in September 2012 following the publication of findings by an independent commission’s review of the disaster, as reported by BBC, and in February 2015 a memorial plaque in honour of the Hillsborough victims was unveiled at Everton’s home ground, as reported by the Liverpool Echo.

These Liverpool fans on Twitter expressed their appreciation for Everton’s banner at Hillsborough last night:
