Reports South 'greatly outnumbered'

The North were victorious over the South in the annual Cammag match this week.

The traditional team sport has recently been held each year at St John's on St Stephen's Day, pitting the opposite ends of the Island against each other.

Players use a cammag stick to whack a ball between staked goals.

This time, the North beat their southern rivals 4-2 in the game, which was held in cold conditions.

It was remarked that this year the South was greatly outnumbered, and some have suggested alternative scorelines to the 4-2 reported.
