HJC cup returns 18th May

THE HJC Cup, the annual five-a-side tournament held in support of the Hillsborough Justice Campaign, is back again and is due to be held on Saturday 18th May, before Liverpool’s last home game of the 2012-13 season.

HJC - Hillsborough Justice CampaignThe venue for this year’s tournament is PlayFootball on Drummond Road, Crosby (L23 9YP). Registration is at 12 noon with kick-off at 1pm.

If you want to enter a team you’ll need a squad no bigger than 8, to include rolling subs, and the entry fee for each squad is £100. Team captains must collect the entry money and register their teams.

Once again the format sees there being two knockout tournaments meaning there will be plenty of football being played – and a specially commissioned HJC Cup will be presented to the winners of the main tournament, with medals for the winners of the 2nd tournament.

The HJC Cup presentation will be made immediately after the final has been played and the sports facility have also given the organisers the function room until 6pm this year meaning friends, family and players can relax and watch the games from the balcony whilst seeing the results and draws of how their teams are doing. Please feel free to go along and support your team.
