'Silgo' Rovers none too happy with their FAI final medals

Well, this is rather embarassing for the FAI: they can't even spell their team names correctly.

Sligo Rovers clawed back a victory from Drogheda United's early lead in dramatic fashion yesterday, securing their fifth title in the FAI cup.

Only to discover their names were bottled on the player's medals.

And this is not like a trophy, where the winner's name must be engraved quickly between the final whistle and the presentation - these medals don't say who the winner is and would have been done well in advance.

And no-one noticed?
