The Hillsborough Justice Campaign five a side football competitions
Karl Baxter has been responsible for the organisation of two HJC Cup five a side football competitions. The inaugural cup competition took place at the Pitz in Liverpool in November 2002 and consisted of six teams, the eventual winners being the Redstorm team captained by Denno.
22nd March 2003 saw the competition expanded to ten teams and another very successful days competition at the Pitz, with the Redstorm team retaining the trophy. The second cup was a combined with a presentation, auction, fundraising and social event at the Sandon pub in the evening.
The weeks leading up to the event had been marred by the death of a Chelsea fan, Kieran Taylor, who liked to visit the official Liverpool FC.TV messageboards.
His visits there had seen him make many friends, amongst them call Karl, Sair and Filo were particularly moved by events. They were so moved that together with other members of the forum helped top raise the money to buy a bed for the cystic fibrosis unit of the Seacroft hospital in Yorkshire where Kieran had spent his final days.
Unaware of his relationship with Liverpool fans Kieran's parents John and Linda were both surprised and touched by the actions of those who had helped to raise the money. John along with some of Kieran's friends attended the competition and have promised to enter a team at the next event, Kieran's parents also donated a trophy the "Kieran Taylor-HJC Cup Player pf the Tournament" and in a moving speech from Kieran's father, he awarded it to Mark Gornell.
Sandwiched in-between these two tournaments based in Liverpool, Kevin Maguire and Jason Caldwell organised a similar tournament in Dublin, again the tournament was a great success.
Other fundraising activities that have taken place have been a pool tournament in London and two sponsored half-marathons organised by Tony Phoenix, a Liverpool supporter living in Belgium, for the summer of 2003.
All of this hardwork, especially fundraising has helped put the organisation on an even firmer footing for the fight ahead.
