Wed 26 Dec 2007 - St. Stephens Day Charity Match < back
St. Stephen's Day Charity Match

Park held their annual St. Stephen's Day charity match with the Park team taking on The Legends. Despite the bad weather there was a good turnout to the match and the spectators were treated to a very entertaining game. As with each year The Legends had their sights set on an upset and were keen to show that there was some skill and pace left in their legs. The game itself was played in great spirits and there was some great craic on and off the field. The spectators were
treated to ten goals with the Park team coming out on top 6-4 at full time. In a gesture of sportsmanship it was decided that the match be
decided on a winner take all penalty shootout with The Legends winning it 4-3 and with it, the bragging rights for another year.

The game itself was a great success, but the main focus each year is to raise money for a local charity. This year over €900 was raised for
the Shannon Senior Citizens, with the spectators at the match donating very generously and the patrons of the Shannon Knights doing like wise
at the after match revelry. Park AFC would like to thank all those who participated in the game and to all those who contributed on the day.
