RADIO presenter Shaun Keaveny will perform a DJ set ahead of the Betfred Super League Grand Final at Old Trafford on Saturday, September 24.

This will be Shaun’s second appearance at Old Trafford having performed at the 2014 Grand Final ahead of the memorable James set, which included their iconic Sit Down performance.

Saints defeated Wigan that night and Kristian Woolf's team will be hoping Shaun's return will be a lucky omen on Saturday.

Having been a regular on BBC Radio for 14 years, Shaun, from Leigh, recently left his 6 Music afternoon show to concentrate on other opportunities.

This has included a new Radio 4 travel show called Your Place Or Mine with recent guests including Guy Garvey, Aatif Nawaz and Michaela Strachan. 

Shaun’s TV career includes Richard Osman's House Of Games, Pointless and The Great Exhibition of The North as well as co-hosting live coverage of the Isle of Wight Festival in 2021 for Sky Arts.

Shaun said: “Getting to provide the soundtrack to the opening of such a gladiatorial contest is a thrill indeed!

“I’ve got a big bag of Shania Twain and I can’t wait to deploy it. See you at Old Trafford.”

Shaun follows in the footsteps of previous Grand Final DJs Craig Charles, Stuart Maconie and DJ Spoony, who have all helped to kick the entertainment off in style.
