Liverpool legends to play Ireland legends in fundraiser for Sean Cox

By Michael Keaveny
A Liverpool legends XI will play an Ireland legends XI  in the Aviva Stadium on Friday April 12 with all funds going to the Sean Cox Rehabilitation Fund. 
Stephen Felle, chairman of the Sean Cox Rehabilitation Trust, said: “As well as being a fantastic event in honour of Sean Cox, it will be a special opportunity for Irish Liverpool fans, and Irish sports fans generally, to see a myriad of legends play in the Aviva Stadium. To coincide with the visit of LFC to Dublin, we are also planning a gala dinner in aid of the SupportSean campaign in Dublin on the evening prior to the match.”
This is the latest in a long series of fundraisers organised to help the Dunboyne man recover from injuries he sustained after he was attacked while attending a Champions League game in Liverpool last April.
Last month Meath played Dublin in a fundraiser for the fund in Pairc Tailteann and earlier this season, during Liverpool’s Premier League fixture against Cardiff City, the club staged a bucket collection at Anfield which was match-funded by LFC Foundation, the club’s official charity, taking the overall total to £59k. 
Full details of the game, including the squads and ticket sales, along with the gala dinner, will be announced in due course.
