HOLDERS Rolls Park were eliminated from the East London Sunday League's Senior Cup in the first round as they crashed out of the competition in a thrilling encounter against Inter Lucia.

Queensbridge Rangers, playing in their first league game in Division One, were given a baptism of fire by Reama, who underlined their promotion credentials with a stunning 17-2 win.
