Shortwood United welcomed Rushall Olympic to a League Cup fixture at the Meadowbank stadium on a dry, mild Saturday morning.
Rushall started the first half strongly, however Shortwood defended resolutely and grew into the game as the half progressed. There were few clear cut chances, with a Rushall shot disallowed for offside coming the closest to breaking the deadlock.
The second half was again closely contested, with the Rushall keeper bravely saving at the feet of Jake Evans when he latched onto a through ball. Eventually, Rushall broke through the stubborn Shortwood defence with a header at the far post from a corner. As Shortwood tried to press for an equaliser, Rushall broke free to score but were again offside.
Rushall finished the game 1-0 to progress to the next round.
We wish Rushall all the best for the rest of the season
