Douglas maintain charge

Douglas kept up their good start to the season with a 36-0 defeat of Marple at Port-e-Chee in South Lancashire/Cheshire Division Two.

A first half hat-trick from Callum Carine, plus a conversion from skipper Scott Goodall, gave them a 17-0 lead at half-time.

In the second half, Niall Killey, Mike Hebden and Goodall all crossed for Douglas, with Goodall adding two further conversions.

Vagabonds leaked three early tries to give their hosts Southport an early lead but fought back to secure a draw 24-24.

Rob Martin and Ross McCulloch both picked up tries for Vagas with the rest of their points coming from Jonny Beckley’s boot.

He kicked four penalties and a conversion to salvage two points for Vagabonds on the road.

After a two and half hour airport delay, a disrupted Ramsey lost out 70-0 away at league leaders Sefton.

The Merseysiders had dropped just one point from a maximum 15 in their opening three games and showed no mercy against Ramsey, taking the opportunity to build up their points difference.
