First Edition

The Liverpool Quidditch Journal will be a quidditch specialised journal spreading news and keeping track with two quidditch teams of the Liverpool region, the Liverpool Hypogriffs and the Liverpool Pharaohs. The journal, financed by Mr.Pharaoh himself, will start of is first edition by telling the wizarding world about the story of the owner of these two teams.

After being born in Canada, the young Cedrick Eichel moved to Liverpool with is parents during is early childhood. Living in a muggle family, Cedrick was unaware about his wizarding skills until the letter he received from hogwarts. He will always remember the visit of one of the schools employee to explain to him and his family what the wizarding world was all about. "It was a big shock for sure, but after whats happen since this moment, i have no regrets being a wizard and I am even very happy and gratefull to be part of all this" told us Pharaoh.

Entering Hogwarts, and joining the Slytherin house at 11 years old, the young Cedrick was soon recognized for his learning capabilities and is ambitious character. being a big fan of Liverpool FC, Cedrick learned about Quidditch at Hogwarts and fell in love with sport. He managed to enter the Slytherin team as a chaser during is third year and known for his great mental skills, became the captain of the team only two years later. He managed to win 2 Hogwarts quidditch Cup titles, both as captain, during is 5 years in the team.

Leaving Hogwarts, the 18 years old Cedrick Eichel was becoming well known in the England wizarding world because of the same things that got him known for in his early Hogwarts days. He got himself a highly placed job in the ministry as soon as he left the school of magic and then decided to let is real name behind him and he chose himself a new name for the world to recognize him, Pharaoh. The reasons of this choice are still not clear as Pharaoh prefers to keep them for himself but the name change worked at he is now well known under it. "This isn't the same situation as Voldemort." He told us, " It was only a personal choice, but it wasn't to feel better or spread fear at all. It was only to move to another chapter of my life."

Still being a huge quidditch player and fan, Pharaoh decided a couple of seasons ago to join the party. With his ambitious character, he decided to buy himself a small stadium in Liverpool and a place in the England Quidditch Championship lower levels. The Liverpool Hypogriffs were now founded during the season 47, with one goal in head, winning the Honour League title and make their mark in the Quidditch history. "The idea of creating a quidditch team was flotting in my head for a while and when the opportunity came, i just went for it. I had everything needed to start a team and I think that I have enough quidditch knowledge and abilities to build an excellent team.", Pharaoh explained to us.

The Hypogriffs kept groing since then and have been promoted each season since their creation. Even if the promotion streak of the team will end this season, the Liverpool based club are still positive and looking foward to the future. We asked a couple of questions to Pharaoh about his objectives and expections for the following seasons:

Journalist: Your promotion streak is coming to an end, but do you still feel confident in your teams chance of getting to the best leagues?

Pharaoh: There is no doubt in my mind. We have a young talented team but the competition got a little tougher. Our young team will continue to grow and I have a feeling that we will be able to access tothe higher levels with our current core.

Journalist: Do you expect to get out of the Steel Division anytime soon?

Pharaoh: I dont want to set myself exact objectives concerning promotion but I dont expect us to stay stuck here for a while. The competition keeps getting tougher and tougher and if we dont progress enough, it will be a long journey.

Earlier this year, Pharaoh made another big move in the quidditch world by purchasing is second proffessional quidditch team, the Liverpool Pharaohs. He made himself clear that this team wont be the farm team of the other and that they would be two teams that would push for the same goal. While their might be some player movements in the early stages between the two teams, Pharaoh told us that they would be completely independant. "We put a couple of substitutes on the transfer list this week and since they matched the needs of the Pharaohs, we put a bid on them. However, if another team would've put these players up for trade, we would have done the same move.", were is explanation.

The season is coming to an end and the first edition of the Liverpool Quidditch Journal also. The quidditch in Liverpool as gotten more active with the arrivals of the two teams and hopefully that the fans will be able to see some high quidditch caliber in the following years. Hope you enjoyed this first edition and dont miss out on the next edition of the LQJ , when we will talk about the Hypogriffs season and the expeactions for the both clubs in the following years.

Second edition

After another season in the quidditch world, two Liverpool teams are now continuing their progress to the top. The Hypogriffs completed their 3rd full season with a satistfying 6th place in the 5th division as the Pharaohs start their first full season in the 6th divison. The owner of both clubs, Mr.Pharaoh, as agreed to speak to us about the Hypogriffs last season and the future and expectation for both of the clubs for the upcoming years.

Last season started in a pretty ugly way for the Hypogriffs. They were below .500 for the first part of the season and were not looking like progressing upwards. However, they managed to get a couple of unexpected wins that also matched with the devellopement and growth of their young and promising players. They slowly climbed the table to go up to the 5th place on the 29th day. However, a lost to the Boggarts made them fell in 6th on the last match day but still concluded a good season in general.

If the season wasn't extraordinary on the field, in the infrastructures the Hypogriffs made some enormous progres. With the money from in from the Ross-Udjvideki and the Brown loan deals, the liverpool based club made about 25K investements in the academy and about 7K in the Liverpool Quidditch Field who gained 5000 places during the year. Mr.Pharoh said he was happy with those longterm investements who will contribute in a permanent way to the club. The loans deal also gave the Hypogriffs three young players to use and devellop. Fleming Brown was probably the best player of the season for Liverpool and he contributed a lot to the season end success of the team. "Its a shame he can't come back this season but we are happy he is returning to his club at Plymouth and we hope he contributes to the Catchers success. We will miss his abilities on the pitch but we knew that he would be here only for one season so we were able to make arrangements to replace him." said a optimistic Mr.Pharaoh.

As he said, the Hypogriffs brought in another player, another loan, with the addition of Forrest Sinclair. The young english chaser will be a contributing part of the chaserline right away and he joins two other players from the Ayr Victory, Ujvideki and Ross. The Victory and the Hypogriffs have been able to have good negociations and deals made in the past year and they are looking to follow those good terms between teams. Pharaoh said he has a good relationship with the teams manager and that the loan deals were beneficial for both teams. He will be looking to devellop them properly for the future of the players, their contribution in Liverpool and their future contribution at Ayr. With that last deal made, The Hypogriffs are adding another 5500 seats in the stadium and another 5000 gallions investement in the Academy. With that done and our roster set for the upcoming years, they will be able to focus on bigger projects.

The starting lineup made of Ujvideki, Scott, Ross, Egan, Knox and Sinclair will stay intact for the next three season said Mr.Pharaoh as they are all young and progressing players. The two owned chasers of the club Egan and Knox are the core of the team,said Pharaoh, and with Sinclair here for 4 years there is no point in changing that. The situation is the same with the beaters with the loaned Ross and the recent 4000 gallions transfer acquired Dermott Scott. At seeker, Malna Ujvideki who made her national team debut in the Nations cup will also stay for another 3 season.

The expectations are not high this season for the Hypogriffs, finishing top 5 is the objective to prepare for fighting for the title the year after. The devellopement of the players will be a key part of the future success of the Hypogriffs and they are fuly concentrating on that for the upcoming season. Pharaoh said: "We dont want to rush things and when we go up, we want to be ready to compete in the higher division and not just go down and loose confidence. We want to grow as a winning organisation and that takes patience."

For the Pharaohs, the expecations will be quite different for their first complete season. Pharaoh wishes that his second club gets promotion and joins the Hypogriffs in the 5th division. With the addition of Webb on loan from Isles of man and the other transfers from the end of last season, the Pharaohs are a few players away from having an elite team in their current division and Pharaoh is looking for those last pieces to complete the puzzle. The focus for the infrastructure will come later but the Pharaohs made a 10.5K investement in the Academy earlier today with the money made from the Webb loan deal. The club will continue to grow ad hopefully have a successfull campaign

The Quiddicth in Liverpool keeps getting more and more exciting and the few next season will bring a better Quidditch quality for the fans with all the new investements from the two young and upcoming clubs.
