Royal and Town reach last eight

Douglas Royal reached the quarter-finals of the JCK Ltd Junior Cup after knocking out Combination One side Ramsey on Saturday.

Graham Gawne gave Royal an early lead and, although Craig Dalton equalised for Ramsey in the second half, it was Combination Two Royal who triumphed.

Brian Jago grabbed the winner with an impressive long-range effort and Ramsey’s frustration was compounded when Darren Horisk was sent-off late on for a professional foul.
