A group of fans, who recently took part in the Reds' Rose Walk will be at Boundary Park on Sunday when Latics play Liverpool in the fourth round of the FA Cup with Budweiser.

Mike Wilson, Cherie Brewster and Beth O’Shaughnessy, who walked from Hillsborough to Anfield in December in memory of the victims of the Hillsborough tragedy in which 96 Liverpool fans lost their lives, will be handed a signed Latics' shirt.

It will be auctioned in March to help the Justice For The 96 awareness campaign fund.

The shirt presentation will be made before kick off by Barry Owen and Jenny Warburton on behalf of Trust Oldham and Latics.  

The walk visited Huddersfield, Latics, Manchester City, Bury, Bolton, Wigan and Everton. 

The 96-mile route took the walkers from Leppings Lane at Sheffield Wednesday, the scene of the tragedy, to the Hillsborough Memorial at Anfield via Boundary Park. 

The walkers are pictured at Boundary Park where they stopped for refreshments.
