The Spanish flag was flying high in the southwest as Rushen United were crowned Combination One champions at Croit Lowey on Wednesday.

Pole-positioned Rushen had to lose to bottom-placed Marown by at least six goals in order for Peel to secure the title, but the southerners led 2-0 at the break via an own goal and a Luke Roberts strike.

Christo Loizides extended their advantage after the break with a third, before Andrew Hughes swept home the fourth and Luke Robinson made it 5-0 with a low strike.

Joe Kneale pulled a goal back for the visitors, but the Spaniards kept on pushing forward and netted a sixth when Hughes intercepted a short goal-kick and chipping over the shot-stopper.

Tom Curphey pulled another goal back from the penalty spot before Tom Collister completed the scoring with the last move of the match via a counter-attack to make it 7-2.

After the game, Isle of Man FA president Tony Mepham gave a quick speech before medals were presented by Canada Life’s Stephen Watterson and the trophy to Rushen captain Andrew Blake.
