Bunclody AFC 2, Courtown Hibs 0: Bunclody completed the divisional league and cup double when they overcame closest contenders Courtown Hibs in a thrilling cup final.

There has been little to divide these two very good footballing sides all season and this game was no different as both started cautiously.

It was Bunclody who got the breakthrough on 25 minutes when Kate Hendrick was sharpest in a crowded penalty area and lobbed the Hibs 'keeper with a deft touch.

Hibs were almost back on level terms moments later when they saw a goal-bound shot rocket back off the crossbar.

Bunclody secured the cup in the 62nd minute when Britney Conroy saw her shot blocked but the ball rebounded to Nicole Fortune who headed into the net.

Both sides can be happy with their seasons as both lost players during the summer, although Courtown will be disappointed not to have picked up some silverware.

Chloe Moynihan of Bunclody picked up a well-deserved player of the match award for her performance.
