Apologies for the delay in sorting this year’s tournament, but we got there eventually.
Most of you know the drill, but for those wishing to attend for the first time, here’re the basics:-
This is the annual 5-a-Side football tournament held to raise money for the Hillsborough Justice Campaign. Now in its sixth year (we think, we’re not counting), this tournament has fast become a mainstay of the LFC football season and has been hotly contested in recent years.
Everyone is welcome, veterans and newbies alike. Don’t worry if you can’t get a team together but want to play. Just get in touch at the email addy below to register your interest and we can find/create a team for you.
Each team must nominate a team captain, who is then responsible for registering their team and collecting monies (see below).
The Prize: The much-coveted HJC Cup itself. Hankered after by all the footballing greats, including Pele, Michel, Diego, Kenny, Alan, Stevie, Jamie, Walshy, Digger and Torben, this magnificent trophy, would look great on any mantelpiece.
The player of the tournament, as judged by a specially selected scouting panel (Karl & Craig) will be presented with the Kieran Taylor Memorial Trophy.
How To Enter:-
ALL teams must first REGISTER via their team captain by emailing Sarah Deane on firstname.lastname@example.org
Please include your team name and contact details. Your registration will then be confirmed by return email.
Entry fees can then be paid in one of the following ways:
PAYPAL: Payments PER TEAM ONLY can be made to email@example.com with “HJC Cup [Team Name/Team Captain]” stated clearly in the reference box.
CHEQUE: Made payable to “Hillsborough Justice Campaign” and your team name/team captain written clearly on the back. Cheques can be handed in at the HJC Shop or posted to:
HJC Cup Entry
408 The Collegiate
In either case, please include a covering letter stating clearly who the money is from and a contact email so receipt can be confirmed.
So, What Happens Then?
For anyone who’s never been before, this is what happens.
Group Stages (teams drawn by independent UEFA official. Or Gerry).
Quarter-Finals (or Second Round, depending on number of teams entered)
3rd/4th place play off
Bibs are provided, but it would be helpful if all teams can ‘co-ordinate’ their kits.
PlayFootball has a spacious licensed bar for spectators. This year, we have the WHOLE venue to ourselves. Yee-hah. Or something. AND we think you'll find the ale to be at very reasonable prices....
Supporters are welcome – the bar’s open all day
The evening do will also be held at PlayFootball this year – one long, continuous ‘do’.
Afterwards, in the bar area, there will be a short trophy presentation followed by some very special spoken word performances by some well-known local names, plus music and a raffle.
Prizes on offer include:
Framed Torres screen print, signed by the artist, Stephen Duff
2 x framed Carra 'Gladiator' prints
Carra-signed LFC Athens shirt, special edition
A collection of framed caricatures of LFC players
2 x Ray Kennedy signed programmes from 1977
"Even The Moon Is Red" framed print
Meal for four, with wine at Gala Casino
Champagne x lots
Some NIKE stuff
The highlight of the evening will be an auction with some very special lots, to be advertised on here nearer the time. Start saving now, as all proceeds go directly to the HJC.
Despite the short notice, we hope this year’s tournament will be as successful as ever, and everyone involved would like to say thanks in advance to all of you making the effort.
Any questions, no matter how trivial, feel free to IM me or email
