Our family would like to thank the Players, Coaches and Parents of Leicester Celtic AFC for their kind words of sympathy & condolences expressed to us following the death of Scott, one of their own. The guard of honour and heartfelt applause outside the Club that Scott loved so much was so moving. Thank you to all.
We very much appreciate the role played by Leicester Celtic FC for the wonderful hospitality and refreshments offered to our friends and family at the Ballinteer St John’s GAA Club house following Scott’s funeral.
A special thank you to Scott’s team mates and coaches who kept in regular contact throughout his long illness keeping his spirits up with team updates both on and off the pitch. We thank you all and ask that you keep Scott in your thoughts and prayers.
Go raibh maith agat.

It is a very sad day and it is with a very heavy heart that we have to let you know that our amazing young player Scott Skinner sadly passed away last night. Scott was a brilliant footballer and a wonderful young man. A Leicester Celtic player through and through. He started in our Academy at a very young age and was always a pleasure to coach. Soon he started playing for Leicester Celtic. He was an important member of Ciaran Shanahan and Gerry Kiernans squad from U8s up and continued to be a valued member of the current u18s Premier squad. Scott and his family have had a very difficult two years. Scott was a fighter and he fought hard against his illness with the amazing support of his dedicated family. On behalf of everyone in the Leicester Celtic community, we wish to extend our deepest and heart felt sympathy to Scott's parents Larry and Claire, to his brothers Alex and Kevin and to all his coaches and team mates. Scott will be missed so much by us all. May He Rest In Peace.
