THE Char­lie Bishop Cup has pro­vided us with mas­sive ex­cite­ment, a gi­gan­tic up­set and a lit­tle piece of his­tory as Glen­cor­mac United and Ark­low Town emerged vic­to­ri­ous from their last four ties.

United faced the might of New­town United A. The match was orig­i­nally sched­uled to take place in the Matt Kelly Me­mo­rial Grounds but with that pitch un­playable, the venue was switched the Kil­macanogue’s Ry­der’s Field.

Nei­ther side could break the dead­lock in the first pe­riod but eight min­utes into the sec­ond half, Ry­der’s Field ex­ploded as Colm Nolan headed home a free kick.

It was then dou­bled de­light for the dar­ing hosts as Andy Free made it 2-0 and Pre­mier Di­vi­sion gi­ants New­town United had no an­swer for their Di­vi­sion 2 op­po­nents.

Glens man­ager Trevor Carr will have to start plan­ning an­other mas­ter­stroke as his side pre­pare to take on Ark­low Town in the fi­nal, pro­vi­sion­ally pen­cilled in for Sun­day, May 4, at the Carlisle Grounds.
