North End United lifted the Wexford Volkswagen Cup for an eleventh time as they had too much class and guile for first-time finalists Kilmore in Ferrycarrig Park on Sunday.

Country crooner Garth Brooks came to mind as the thunder rolled menacingly nearby with the clock ticking down towards kick-off time for the soccer showpiece.

Kilmore United fans were certainly in a low place after the final whistle, with their prayers remaining unanswered as their team never threatened to pull off a shock victory and the only dance on show was the North End players doing a familiar jig of celebration.

The game took a long time to come to life, with North End enjoying lots of possession but at times they lacked the penetration and cutting edge to carve open the Kilmore defence.

The breakthrough came in the 37 minute when Shane Dempsey confidently dispatched a penalty after being fouled in the area himself, and the Wexford town side never looked like losing their grip on the contest thereafter.

Fifteen minutes into the second-half, and with the Kilmore defence vehemently appealing for the offside flag to be raised, Adam Beary expertly fired the ball low and hard into the net and there was no way back for the underdogs.
