How comedian Shane Todd was left “black and blue” after playing against Linfield Legends

    Shane Todd has revealed how he was left “back and blue” after playing in a charity football match.

    It was no laughing matter for the Holywood comedian after he lined out against a Linfield Legends team at the Hammer Complex last month.

    Shane was playing for a Celebrity Select side who included former Northern Ireland winger Keith Gillespie and ex-Ulster and Ireland rugby star Paddy Wallace.

    The Celebs comfortably won the game 5-2, but Shane admits he had more than just celebratory reminders of the victory.

    “I got kicked something shocking. Garth Scates and Ian Young were probably the worst.

    Ian is a kickboxer? He did some kickboxing during the game.”It was all good-natured fun for Shane, though, who indulged in plenty of vitriol after his side’s runaway victory.
