Rushen United Junior Cup Winners 2022-23

Junior Cup win for Rushen United

Rushen United claimed the Ascot Hotel Junior Cup title on Wednesday 24th May with victory over St Johns United, meaning they remained unbeaten in any competition in the 2022-23 season.

The Spaniards took the lead through Aaron Hawley before the break, and made it 2-0 just after through a Charlie Jackson long range effort. 

 St John's United pressed on though, and a looping header from the Canada Life Combination League's top goal-scorer - Liam Sayle - made it 2-1. Unfortunately, Sayle couldn't convert a great opportunity in front of goal on 83m to draw his side level, leaving Rushen United - and their dedicated fans - to celebrate.

Pedro Cardoso of St Johns United was named Player of the Match for persistently troubling the Rushen defence.
