FOOTBALL - Sporting slip to Rushall defeat as FA Cup opponents named

BROMSGROVE Sporting were beaten on their travels for the first time this season after falling to a 3-1 defeat at Rushall Olympic.

Ryan Edmunds pulled a goal back for the Rouslers in the second half after John Atherton, Alexander Fletcher and Jayden Campbell had put Rushall into a three-goal lead at Dales Lane.

The result leaves Sporting in 10th place in the Southern League Premier Central table after four matches.

Both matches kick-off at 3pm.
