Hillsborough Cup for schools

Mayor of Liverpool announces new football trophy

Published on October 18th 2013.


Hillsborough Cup for schools
 

MAYOR Joe Anderson has announced the creation of a football competition for Liverpool schools to mark the 25th anniversary of Hillsborough. 

The Hillsborough Cup and Hillsborough Plate – the brainchild of the Mayor is an under 13s competition involving 19 secondary schools.

The first matches in the knock-out competitions will be played later this month, with the finals being held in Spring 2014 at Liverpool Soccer Centre in Walton, a few weeks prior to the 25th anniversary service to be held at Anfield. 

Mayor Anderson, pictured with Cardinal Heenan Under 13s team,  said: “Every person who died at Hillsborough in 1989 was a football fan and the Hillsborough Cup and Plate is a fitting and appropriate way to remember them as we approach the 25th anniversary of the tragedy. 

Backing

“It is really important that we do all we can to educate current and future generations about the tragedy so that we never, ever forget it.” 

The initiative is also being backed by the Hillsborough families and Liverpool and Everton Football Clubs. 

The following schools are involved: St Francis Xavier’s (SFX), University Academy Liverpool (UAL), Alsop, Archbishop Beck, Childwall, De La Salle, West Derby, Gateacre, Calderstones, North Liverpool Academy, St Margaret’s, Fazakerley, Bluecoat, Cardinal Heenan, King David, Broadgreen, Parklands, St Francis Assisi and Enterprise South Liverpool Academy (ESLA).
