Help us make children affected by Homelessness smile christmas day

When LHFC was formed in 2007, the committee always wanted the club to be more than football.

In 2010, LHFC ran the first Christmas present appeal for children in family hostels, domestic violence units and mother and baby units across merseyside.The response was amazing   Sharon from Our house in Birkenhead who were one of the recipients last year stated “.the gifts made a big difference to Christmas Day for our service users”. The generosity of the people across Merseyside and beyond has been amazing, and we hope this continues.

Jenko a current member of the 11 a side team, states ” Im bringing a present next week when I come to footy #give something back”

This is our third year and the response so far has been amazing , mode trainning college in Liverpool is asking for presents, so is Rainhill Rockets a junior football team in Rainhill are asking there children to bring a present  to the Christmas party.

Steve Barton secretary states ” Christmas is a sad time for a lot of people, a lot of parents will be struggling to get by,will not have families to go to, so the difference one present may make to each child in a family hostel may be priceless, the reality is there is a chance that these children may wake up to nothing, also it causes stress amongst parents, so by having something to give, it will release a bit of pressure of them .”

All we ask is you buy a present , wrap it up write boy or girl and age and drop it at one of our drop off points

Early start too much for light blues

Claremont 4 LHFC 2 

Due to the Merseyside Derby today’s game at Breckside Park was an early kick off.

The game started well for LHFC  went they went ahead in the 15th Minute through a strike from Mark O Neil, LHFC should have had a few more, and missed a few chances, This allowed claremont to get a grip on the game. Andy Atherton in goal for LHFC pulled off a few saves, as LHFC struggled to get a grip in the game, Claremont were denied what looked like a penalty in the 30th Minute, it wasnt long before The home side equalized.

HT 1-1

The second half started the same with Claremont piling on the pressure and it wasnt long before they made it 2-1 , then 3-1 before going 4 -1 up with 20 minutes to go.

LHFC woke up and started to put pressure on the hosts, and Craig jenkins scored an exqisuite chip from the edge of the area.  despite last ten minutes Pressure the game finished 4-2, no complaints from LHFC the best team won

Team  Andy Atherton, Terry Corrigan, Lee Green, John cronin, Martin Mclure, Mark Oneill, Ray Dermott, Craig Jenkins, Dave Brotheridge,Michael Edwards, Danny Leonard .

Subs Anthony Bleasdale, Steve Barton

Goals: Mark O Neil, Craig Jenkins

MOM: Michael Edwards was solid as full back in his first start, he rarley lost a tackle, Craig Jenkins scored a brilliant goal and was always a threat when he had the ball, however Andy Atherton on his debut in goal, kept LHFC in the hunt with a string of great saves so he just pips it.

Football for All!

As part of LHFC’s commitment to provide football activities to all people who are affected by homelessness we will be holding an open ‘Walking Football’ Session at 2 Aigburth Drive L17 3AA on Weds 20th Nov at 9am. The rules are similar to the standard 5-a-side game with the main difference being that running is PROHIBITED (if a player runs with or without the ball a free kick is awarded against them!) Which means it is ideal for those who are getting back into the game, new to the game or returning from injury. If you have any inquiries, please contact us

Liverpool Homeless Ladies take on Merseyside Police

LHFCL 1 Merseyside PoliceL 5

This evening a special match took place at Hope university, Merseyside police ladies had been keen to have a match against the ladies from LHFC, for some time and following a break in the futsal calender allowed us to play tonight, organized by co coordinators, Lisa Thomas (LHFC) and Tracey O Hara from Merseyside Police,  the girls braved the rain, with a squad of nine including our four england internationals, and three new girls playing for the first time.

The police ran out 5-1 winners, but the match was not about winning or loosing the match was about breaking down the barriers what can occur between members of Homeless services and the Police. 

Big congratulations for the two teams for braving the weather and the sportsmanship shown tonight Image
