Remembering the 1970 Cup Final team

Remembering the 1970 Cup Final team 50 years on

To mark the 50th anniversary of Rovers appearance in the FAI Cup Final in 1970, Sligo Rovers Heritage Group have produced a special supplement which will be published in ‘Sligo Champion’ edition of 8th December.

It will include details of the three match epic that saw a brave Rovers team lose out in their quest for a first Cup success, interviews with goal scorer Johnny Cooke and Tony Fagan, who would lift the Cup 13 years later

The supplement will also include features on other Rovers legends and characters of the past, a piece on Rovers outdoor Museum, as well as  a recollection of our first European adventure in Belgrade in 1977
