LIAM Polworth will never forget watching Inverness savour Scottish Cup glory – and has told of his burning ambition to experience such euphoria with Motherwell.

Back in 2015, Polworth was a substitute for the the Caley Thistle side which made history by lifting their first-ever piece of silverware by overcoming Falkirk 2-1 in a nerve-shredding final at Hampden.

The 10-man Highlanders triumphed thanked to James Vincent’s late goal to ensure the famous trophy would be heading back to the Highlands, leaving local lad Polworth thrilled for his team-mates as they soaked up the adulation back in the Highland Capital.

Polworth said: “I won a cup medal with Inverness a few years ago. I didn’t actually play in the final, I was a sub. I was a young lad and it was a great experience to be there and to win it in the end.

“People tell you different things about the final, but it’s different if you don’t play. But the boys said it was a massive occasion even if you didn’t play in the match. To win it was great.

“Having been involved before would spur anyone to go and, if it comes around again, to get a chance to play in a final. It’s something every player dreams of.

“I didn’t actually go back up to Inverness on the bus, I went straight away on holiday. I was a wee bit stubborn!”
