Peel v Corinthians in Junior Cup

Peel will meet Corinthians in the final of the Ascot Hotel Junior Cup later this month.

That’s after both home sides won their semi-finals on Saturday.

League runners-up Peel defeated holders Rushen 4-1 at Douglas Road to underline their status as competition favourites.

Two goals from Will Morris and one each from veteran Chris Caine and the in-form Aaron Costain booked their place.

Aidan McClarney netted for Rushen in the first half but they weren’t able to repeat their quarter-final heroics – when they won at champions Old Boys – and lost their grip on the trophy.

Peel will meet 2013 winners Corinthians in their fourth consecutive Junior Cup final.

That’s after goals from Greg Smith, Matthew Palmer and a Tony Edgar penalty saw off the spirited challenge of Combination Two side Braddan, whose goal was scored by regular marksman Daniel Bedford.
