Peel target their 31st Manx FA Cup

Another chapter in the 'Old Firm' story is the highlight of the FA Cup first round ties today (Saturday).

Rushen and Peel, two of the most successful clubs in Manx football, meet at Croit Lowey.

Rushen are the cup holders and have won the trophy nine times in all. They go into the contest as favourites as they are third in the Premier League.

However, Peel are the most successful side in the history of the competition, with no fewer than 30 triumphs.

Elsewhere, Braddan look to cause an upset against Castletown, Corinthians entertain Gymns at Ballafletcher, and Foxdale host 'grand slam' chasers St George's.

Promotion contenders Onchan tackle struggling Ayre, Old Boys have a tough trip to Ramsey, St Mary's face Douglas Royal, and in-form Union Mills play St John's.
