St Georges lift FA Cup after thrilling extra-time win

The victory gave St Georges their seventh FA Cup title

St Georges lifted the Isle of Man FA Cup on Monday after a thrilling extra-time victory over Rushen United at Castletown Stadium.

Tom Craine gave Rushen a first-half lead before Calum Morrissey's screamer forced the game into extra-time.

In extra-time, strikes from Morrissey and Chris Bass Junior gave St Georges a commanding 3-1 advantage.

Adam Cregeen's late header pulled one back for the current league leaders but it proved only a consolation.

St Georges boss Chris Bass Senior said: "It was a great performance. I think we created enough chances to win two games.

"It's been a tricky season but this was a massive performance for us."
