Sun­day, June 2, will be a day that will stick in the me­mory of ev­ery­one in Kil­macanogue as it was the day that Glen­cor­mac United won their first ever Wick­low Cup Fi­nal in their 45-year-old his­tory.

A fan­tas­tic crowd from Kil­macanogue made their way to the Carlisle Grounds to see his­tory been made and the club is in­debted to you all for the fan­tas­tic sup­port.

The Glens took the lead through a fan­tas­tic Sam O’Cal­laghan Free­kick and dou­bled that lead by half­time when Nay Wat­ters forced home a corner. How­ever, Rath­new are renowned for never giv­ing up and hit back early at late in the sec­ond half to force ex­tra time.

This was when the Glens re­gained con­trol and Ben O’Cal­laghan scored in the first pe­riod be­fore Josh O’Cal­laghan rapped it up with the clock tick­ing down and the cup was head­ing back to Kil­macanogue. Con­grat­u­la­tions to this great young team who are a credit to the club.

Big thanks also to Richie and Phily Berns of U Value Foam In­su­la­tion for one again spon­sor­ing the club tops for the fi­nal.

Thanks to Caro­line and Shane McNa­mara and the staff of Plucks for all their ef­forts and club dec­o­ra­tions which gives ev­ery­one a great boost when you see the ef­fort put in and also for fill­ing the cup on nu­mer­ous oc­ca­sions on Sun­day night.

Fi­nally, a mas­sive thank you to all the clubs young su­per­stars who roared on their hero’s on the day and with so many bril­liant young foot­ballers in the club, it wont be long be­fore they will be play­ing on the team and win­ning more Wick­low Cups.
