Sligo Rovers left it late before beating Drogheda United 3-2 on Sunday to secure their fifth title in the FAI cup.

But when players from both sides checked their medals afterwards, they spotted that the champions' name was mistakenly misspelled as "Silgo Rovers".

"This was an error made by our supplier," an FAI spokesperson told TheScore.ie

"The matter will be subject to a full review and the medals will be replaced."

Although the typo is an embarrassing one, Sligo players tried to see the funny side of it.

Sligo defender Alan Keane added: "We only noticed it on the bus on the way back to Sligo.

"Our skipper Danny Ventre was having a look and spotted it: 'Silgo'. We got a few laughs out of that."
