Village FC hold an annual inter-team tournament where each of our teams compete against each other to formally close our season. The inter-team tournament takes place on the same day as the awards evening where we hand out multiple awards to our most rewarding players for the season.
In 2009 Village FC lost a well loved former player Louis Belcuore. Louis went in for what was meant to be a routine knee operation, but ended in tragedy when he lost his life.
In 2011, Village FC took the decision to honour his memory by renaming the inter-team tournament and presenting a new Louis Belcuore Shield to the winners each year.
When Louis pass away, he left behind wife Penny and three children (Louis, Lidia and Sienna). We were honoured when Penny came to the Village FC Inter-Team Tournament to award the new Louis Belcuore shield to the inaugural winners, the C team.
Village FC is proud to honour Louis’ memory in this way. Below are a list of the Village FC Winners of the Louis Belcuore Shield.
