United Warriors SO Team

On Sunday June 22nd Tolka Park played host to a very special cup final. A Shelbourne XI took on the United Warriors Special Olympics club in the Leo Keogh Cup Final.

The annual game pits a Shelbourne team of fans, club staff, and volunteers against the Special Olympics club in a charity match with all proceeds raised going to the Warriors.

Shelbourne kit man Johnny Watson and Shels fanatic Stephen Fagan came up with the idea over 6 years ago. The prize on offer in the final is the Leo Keogh Cup, the trophy is in memory of Stephen’s cousin who lost his life in a car accident.

FM104’s Darren Cleary played in the Shelbourne side who were narrowly beaten by the Warriors on penalties, he put togethera report for FM104. To hear the report click HERE.
