Newly promoted Corinthians claimed their first points of the season on Saturday – and they did so in style!
The bottom club thrashed Douglas Royal 6-0 and, while they stay bottom, they’ll hope the result will spark a winning run to avoid the drop.

A Kerron Christian hat-trick helped third placed Peel continued their winning form with a 3-2 home success over Union Mills.
However, the Millers, who slip to sixth following the defeat, battled hard and a brace from defender Carl Dobbin kept them in the hunt.

Ross Williamson, Jon Callow, Lee Cowley and Sam Theobold were the Miners’ marksmen with Mark Connor netting for Gymns in the first half.
