It’s been a good few days for Rothwell Corinthians as they followed up a 4-2 win over Royston Town U23 with a 2-2 draw at Rushden & Higham United on Tuesday evening.

Lamin Jammeh (2), Aidan Smith and Elliot Granger were on target in Saturday’s win before they shared the spoils with the Lankies at Hayden Road.
