This is the annual 5-a-Side football tournament held to raise money for the Hillsborough Justice Campaign. Now in its seventh year, 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. Plus mini-trophies for each winning squad member and runners-up member, and would look great on any IKEA mantelpiece.

The reigning champions, and the team to beat, is….ROBY FC.

How To Enter:-
ALL teams must first REGISTER via their team captain by emailing Sarah Deane on

Please include your team name and contact details. Your registration will then be confirmed by return email.

PAYPAL: Payments PER TEAM ONLY can be made to with “HJC Cup [Team Name/Team Captain]” stated clearly in the reference box.
