Rushen win eight goal thriller

Rushen United have the southern bragging rights and, more importantly, a place in the FA Cup quarter-finals.

That’s after a 5-3 triumph at Castletown in the southern derby.

In a cup thriller, Rushen saw off their battling counterparts but only after Town fought back from behind three times.

Goals from skipper Paul Jones and Josh Kelly (two) had Rushen in front on three occasions only for town to level through Ashley Southern and then Mike Edge (two).

However, Justin Hawley and then Aaron Hawley gave Rushen daylight to secure their place in the last eight where they’ll meet Pulrose.
