THE victims of the Summerland Fire which killed 50 people including two men from Warrington will be remembered during a one minute silence at the annual Peace Cup.

Alan Barker, from Fearnehead, and Sean Kelly, from Woolston, were both killed when a fire destroyed the £2m Summerland indoor entertainment and leisure complex on the Isle of Man on August 2, 1973.

The one minute silence, which will also remember the victims of the Warrington Bombings, Tim Parry and Johnathan Ball, will be held at Warrington Town FC on Saturday, August 2, before kick off at 3pm.
