Liverpool Feds WFC are dedicating their Under-10 and Under-12 tournament to the memory of former player Zoe Tynan, whose passing saddened the women's football world back in August.
Club Chairperson, Sue Carmichael, recalls the time when she first linked up with her club:
"Zoe joined Liverpool Feds at six years old and it was soon obvious how committed Zoe was to her football. Zoe asked technical and tactical questions beyond her years and was dedicated to improve herself and her team.
"We loved many sideline stories shared by Alison and Carl about Zoe's ambition and dedication. She signed her name Zoe Zidane, much to her teacher's confusion...was that her middle name? She would sleepwalk in her shin pads, Saturday morning games couldn't come too soon. When a wet and windy Heron Eccles was called off, coaches and parents...and Beth... may have been happy for a morning indoors, but for Zoe it would be a huge disappointment.
"She also juggled her athletics with football....often going off to a race a bit muddy after a match.
"Zoe was keen and committed to her football and was often puzzled by some team mates' preparation for matches. At one tournament she was quite taken aback that some of her team were strolling up for the final with half eaten Mr Whippys..! In her mind, maybe ice cream vans and burger vans should be banned from footie tournaments.
"Zoe went to Everton's Centre of Excellence with our blessing as we recognised what a talent she was and knew that she need to be at the next level of girls' football to be recognised. It was such a thrill for our club that Zoe had recognition at an international England level and then went on to play in the FA Women's Super league with Everton and Man City.
"Zoe and her family never forgot her football roots with the Feds and she came back (with Natalie of course) to help coach with our junior teams. Their help and insight and coaching of our younger players is a matter of pride for our club.
"We dedicate this tournament to Zoe as the day [20th May] is her 19th birthday. We thank Alison, Carl and Beth for their support on another tough day for them.
"We thank Anna Farrell at the County FA, Mo Marley, the U19 squad, Everton Ladies and of course Liverpool Feds players and staff for making this very special tournament happen."
Money raised from the tournament will be given to the Alzheimer's Society. This charity has been nominated by Zoe's family as a charity that Zoe would be keen to help with as her loving Nan has the condition
The tournament takes place on Saturday 20th May at Walton Hall Avenue. Entry to the tournament costs £35 and each team will have three games in a league of four, and then will compete for either the Cup or Plate in a further three league games before a semi final and final for the top teams. You may register ten players in a squad and registration takes place at 9.30am, with kick off at 10am.
