WORCESTER City manager Chris Cornes is hoping that Wednesday night was not the last time they will be celebrating silverware this season.

City thrashed Roman Glass St George 5-1 to complete a resounding 7-2 win on aggregate in the two-legged final, ending a five-year wait for a trophy.

But he is hoping this will only act as a little taste of what they could achieve together this season.

"I think the lads have had a taste tonight of what could be this season and I think this will inspire us to kick on," he said.

"The lads smelled blood tonight and went for them (Roman Glass). We weren't great in that first-leg but in the second-half, we went for them and fully deserved to win it 5-1.

"The lads have been brilliant and this result for us is perfect for them. They have got their hands on something for their hard work over the past six or seven months and I think this will take us to another level and they are going to want this winning feeling again."

City could end the 2023/24 campaign with four trophies, including both the Hellenic League Premier title and Isuzu FA Vase. But Wednesday will also have acted as a small reward for those City fans who have had little to enjoy in the last decade or so.

"It's a brilliant achievement for me and I can only imagine how much the fans enjoyed that," added Cornes.

"They have stuck with the club for however long they have and especially where the club has been in the last 10 years or so, it's been in decline but it feels like there is some sunshine amongst the clouds and we are on the up.

"But this is just the start. We have won 18 games in a row and the momentum is now with us and we need to keep riding this wave.

"For us, we continue to just focus on the next game, we aren't even thinking of the Vase or any fixture past Brimscombe away this weekend (Saturday, March 23)."
