Mag­pies face Glens in Wick­low Cup fi­nal

Wicklow People (West Edition) - - SPORT -

THE fi­nal pair­ing for the Wick­low Cup was de­cided last week­end when New­town United and Glen­cor­mac United emerged from their re­spec­tive semi-fi­nals.

It will be an his­toric oc­ca­sion for the Glen­cor­mac men who have reached their first ever fi­nal in their 44-year his­tory thanks to their hard-earned vic­tory over Carnew AFC in Pat O’Toole Park on Sun­day af­ter­noon.

“This is for the great club­men that kept Glen­cor­mac go­ing over the years. The likes of Shay Kier­nan, Ai­den Golden, Karl Brad­shaw and Trevor Carr. We have not won any­thing since the 2002 Car­ton Walsh cup and to be in with a chance of three tro­phies at the end of may is fan­tas­tic for such a small club,” said Glen­cor­mac’s Colm Mul­li­gan af­ter the game.

New­town have re­turned for yet another bite at the cherry as they pre­pare for their third fi­nal in a row hav­ing come through a bat­tle with St Pe­ter’s in their semi-fi­nal played at the Vartry Grounds in Round­wood on Sun­day morn­ing thanks to an Evan Mo­ran goal and a fine Lee Fitz­patrick penalty save.
