The story began on the fateful afternoon on May 11, 1985 as Arnold took his seat in the main stand paid for by daughter Ann alongside Ralph Lauren Glasses Opsm
He recalled: "We kept our eyes on it but weren't too bothered until a policeman came and stood nearby. Then we got the impression it was a bit more important.
"I do remember my five year old son Adam was in the stand. He was very fortunate.
For Hawley, much of that day remains a blur. He believes his memory has deliberately blocked out some of the horror.
Arnold, a long time supporter who Tommy Hilfiger Golf had watched his first game in 1929, was soaking up the atmosphere as City celebrated winning the Third Division. When the first wisps of smoke appeared in the next section, he initially thought little of it.
"The seats were getting warmer. I put my hand between my legs and the wood suddenly felt very hot so I said to Paul 'I think it was time we were moving'."
"When I couldn't get near enough to help any more, I turned round and the field was just a mass of people. But luckily one of the girls who worked at the club knew Adam and she had spotted him sat in the goalmouth."

But he was delighted to meet someone who will be forever grateful for his courage.

Paul and Robert headed for the concrete walkway at the back of the stand but Arnold did not follow. They became separated as the smoke billowed.
