New Cup to Remember the 96

A football competition for schools in Liverpool to mark the 25th anniversary of Hillsborough was launched at Cardinal Heenan on Friday 18 October.

The Hillsborough Cup and Hillsborough Plate - the brainchild of Mayor Joe Anderson - is an under 13s competition involving 19 secondary schools in the city.

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 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. 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.

Word of the Week

Machiavellian (adjective)

Subject which uses this term: English Literature; Drama; History; Politics

Meaning: cunning, scheming, and unscrupulous.

For example: ‘Mrs Lyons is Machiavellian. She manipulates Mrs Johnstone into giving up her baby. She uses Mrs Johnstone’s superstitious nature to ensure she gets what she wants.’

MRS. LYONS: You do know what they say about twins, secretly parted, don’t you?


MRS. LYONS: They say…they say that if either twin learns that he once was a pair, that they shall both immediately die. It means, Mrs. Johnstone, that these brothers shall grow up, unaware of the other’s existence. They shall be raised apart and never, ever told what was once the truth. You won’t tell anyone about this, Mrs. Johnstone, because if you do, you will kill them."
