Richhill’s fourth fixture inside 11 days finished in Irish Cup disappointment against Rathfern Rangers.

Lee Wortley handed Richhill control early on but the hosts struggled to build on the breakthrough.

Rathfern left the tie level then raced into a 4-1 lead before David Ross’ penalty.

Richhill Swifts defeated Long Nancy’s by 2-1 in the Lonsdale League thanks to Jason Walker and Jordan Nellins.
