SADS UK Charity Football Team Hughsie FC

December 9, 2021

Hughsie FC team is a group of friends and former team mates of Adam Hughes.  Adam was a former team captain who played with the majority of the players currently involved with the team. Phil Skayman said "Since 2009 myself and some good friends with me have shown their support to this incredibly important charity, SADS UK. We are supporting SADS UK in memory of our great friend Adam Hughes who was taken away from us so cruelly with this condition.  Adam was a real legend amongst all his fellow football players and supporters. He was such a great lad on and off the field that even those who only met him briefly still fondly remember him. He was kind, passionate, crazy and a real genuine guy. Adam was an inspiration to us all and through this charity support his memory will live on. Raising money for the excellent work SADS do will ultimately save lives and stop our friends and loved ones from being cruelly taken from us. Support from our group so far has included:

2009- To date : Setting up of 5/6 and 8 aside football teams in Adams memory Hughsie FC who have competed in over 500 matches and raised thousands for SADS and other charities
The annual Mustard Custard Cup weekend with over 200 people over the weekend getting involved every year in this charity football match
2019 Running the London Marathon in support of SADS
2021 Setting up 11aside SADS Charity Football Team
2022 4 of our players trekking for 3 weeks to Everest Base Camp

SADS UK thanks everyone involved for their kind support and fundraising efforts since Adam's tragic death. We are very proud of Hughsie FC.
