Cup Final Ticket
HURLFORD took the lead after three minutes when Glens defender Ryan McChesney brought down Ross Robertson in the area and Stewart Kean scored from the spot via the left-hand post. A minute later, Alan Kinney almost equalised with a point-blank header from Cameron Marlow's fine cross.
McChesney's big day was then cut short when Robertson again broke clear and the Glens defender sent him sprawling in the box for the second time, leaving referee Colin Steven little choice but to send him for an early bath. Kean drilled the ball into the same corner to make it 2-0.

Glenafton had Bryan McGarrity to thank for keeping them in the match early in the second half when he made two excellent saves from the rampant Kean and Danny Mitchell. Kean almost sealed his hat-trick when a header from close in bounced over the bar.

Taz rises to head home the third goal

After 81 minutes the Ford finally put Glenafton out of their misery when ex-Glen Paul McKenzie powered home a header from substitute Stevie Masterton's corner. Masterton then hit the post with a long-range free-kick as United ended the match as worthy victors.

United's victory completed a Scottish Cup double for the village, by adding the Barr Group Scottish Junior Cup to the Scottish Amateur Cup won by Hurlford Thistle on May 19th by beating Colville Park 4-3 on penalties (3-3 AET) also in a Rugby Park final. This is the first time in their hundred plus years history that both these old trophies had been won by teams from the same village (or town) in the same season. Hence the celebratory banner hung on the outside wall of the village pub, The Thistle.
