Shrewsbury: Group of Shrews fans condemned after 'vile' chants about Hillsborough disaster

Shrewsbury Town has condemned a small section of their fans after they sang vile and offensive chants about the Hillsborough disaster. The disaster took place in 1989 and led to the death of 97 Liverpool fans. The club said that they are investigating with the help of the police to identify the individuals responsible for the chants during their 4-1 defeat at Anfield.

“Shrewsbury Town Football Club is disgusted and appalled to see and hear the reports on social media about the vile and offensive chanting and behavior of a very small minority of our ‘supporters’ yesterday,” the club said in a statement about the fans chanting about the Hillsborough disaster. “These people do not represent our club in any way shape or form and we are liaising with West Mercia Police to try and identify those responsible who will, in turn, liaise with Merseyside Police. If any supporters have any information that might assist us in identifying those responsible, they can contact the club confidentially and we will use the information as part of our investigations with the police authorities.”

“As for these Shrewsbury fans!” goalkeeper, Harry Burgoyne said. “Should be ashamed of yourselves. Liverpool showed nothing but respect today. Shocking absolutely shocking! Out them and ban them for life!”
