On Saturday 22nd of June, Dublin Devils FC were invited back to Tolka Park to face Shelbourne in a friendly 11-a-side match for the 3rd year running. Shelbourne XI had some of their former players, as well as supporters of the club who had taken part in an auction to play in the team! Funds were raised for Special Olympics Ireland.
A close match saw the Devils win 4-3, thanks to 2 goals from debutant Dennis, and a goal apiece from Chris and Jamie. 2 Shels goals came from Tony Sheridan and 1 from Conan Byrne.
After the match we had drinks and speeches in Tolka Bar, followed by trip to Fagan’s around the corner.
A perfect way to kick off Pride week. We’re looking forward to next year’s match!
