Alumni organise memorial 5-a-side football tournament

memorial football tournament

Loughborough Football Alumni arranged a sporting charity event which took place on 22 May 2021 on the University campus.

The football tournament, which has been taking place annually since 2000, was originally set up to remember Eddie Gregg, a former University footballer and alumnus who sadly died in his 20s from Leukaemia.

The tournament now takes place to remember not only Eddie but other alumni footballers who have also died at a young age including Mike Hughes, Matt Pinnock, and Daniel Wilkinson.

This year the event raised money for four charities: Mind, Willow Foundation, The Daniel Wilkinson Foundation, and Blood Cancer UK.
