Shelbourne FC issue apology for the unavailability of tea at Tolka Park on Friday night

A warm coat is a given, a scarf would be required on a particularly cold night and a cup of tea to warm the cockles would also be an essential part of many a fan’s routine.

Unfortunately, supporters of Shelbourne and Wexford Youths were unable to avail of said cup of tea on Friday night at Tolka Park as there was none available due to circumstances completely out of the control of the home side.

“Due to circumstances completely outside of our control, we were unable to provide this service at the Wexford Youths game.

“We fully expect to be up-and-running again for the game v Bray Wanderers on Monday night - and look forward to supplying you all, once more, with that reviving 'cuppa'.”
