THE people of Cumnock have been given an emotional 'thank you' message after their backing helped Cumnock Juniors to glory at the weekend.

Findlay Frye's 92nd-minute winner brought the Scottish Junior Cup to Townhead Park for only the third time in the club's history - sparking wild celebrations in the stands at Broadwood Stadium that continued back home long into the night.

And the party atmosphere continued at a family fun day at the ground on Saturday afternoon, with supporters lining the streets to cheer on the squad.

It came after a build-up to the game that saw homes and businesses decorated in black and white colours as the community showed its support for Brian McGinty's men ahead of the big match.

The win was also followed by the unveiling of a new badge for the club - sporting three stars rather than the previous two to mark each of Cumnock's Scottish Junior Cup triumphs.

Cumnock Chronicle:

A spokesperson for the club told the Chronicle: "The players, management and committee of Cumnock Juniors Football Club would like to take this opportunity to thank the people and businesses of Cumnock for their unbelievable support before, during and after our Scottish Junior Cup final.

"Thee support at the game on Friday night helped us bring the cup back to Cumnock and the reception we received on Friday night and Saturday in Cumnock was amazing and unforgettable.

"Finally, we would like to thank all the volunteers who worked behind the scenes to make it such a memorable weekend."

Friday's 1-0 win over Rutherglen Glencairn came 34 years after Nock's last triumph in the final of the tournament - a 1-0 victory over Ormiston Primrose in 1989.
