On top of the world

Rush man Morgan lifts World Cup!

There were jubilant scenes in Rush Cricket Club on Sunday evening as the local community packed out the clubhouse to watch their favourite son Eoin Morgan lead England to World Cup glory - in what has been described as the most thrilling final of all time.

According to Rush Cricket Club chairman Alan Butterly, the atmosphere for the final was electric in the clubhouse.

'It's not every day that a room full of Irish people will gather to cheer on an English side, but any victory for Eoin Morgan feels like a victory for our small town.

'Eoin Morgan is one of our own and we feel nothing but immense pride as to what he has achieved. It was an absolutely electric finish to the game and the atmosphere during that final over was something to behold. We were all willing England to win as we wanted to see Eoin lift the World Cup. It honestly could not have happened to a nicer guy and he has never forgotten his roots.'
