Millwall remembers Boston victims tonight
Over the past 48 hours, major sporting events in the UK, including participants and spectators, have paid their respects to the three individuals killed and some 200 injured at the Boston Marathon last week.
Sport provides a unique opportunity for people to join together in competition and celebration, and continues to be a force for good in our troubled world.
Our chairman, John Berylson, and his family, as Boston residents, were even more deeply shocked and saddened by the events that unfolded during one of the oldest and greatest marathons in the world. The healing process has already begun as the whole city rallies round those who have suffered, and even though we are separated geographically, tonight we at Millwall will stand together with our friends from Massachusetts in remembering the victims of that atrocity.
The players will wear black armbands during tonight's npower Championship clash with Blackburn Rovers, and before the game there will be a minute's applause.
