Douglas make it three from three

Another workmanlike performance from Douglas gave them a bonus point win over last season’s rivals Sefton in South Lancashire/Cheshire Division One.

That meant the newly promoted side kept up their challenge at the top of the table, moving into second place.

Douglas led 15-0 at half-time with a drop goal from Luke Hyland, tries from former skipper Ryan Maddox and the evergreen Daryn Thompson, plus a conversion from Bryn Snellgrove.

In the second half, Douglas opened up on the visitors with tries from Callum Randle and Captain Glyn Hooson-Owen and another conversion from Snellgrove.

Youngster Luke Hyland finished off an impressive debut with a try of his own.

In South Lancashire/Cheshire Division Two, there was disappointment for Ramsey as they went down 32-24 at home to Southport after leading 10-6 at half-time.

They had led through a try from Ben Harding and a penalty and conversion from Andy Cleator.

There were further tries for Ramsey in the second half with Rory Nicholson and Jarred Callister both crossing and Fintan Cummins adding the extras, but a determined fight back from the visitors secured the win and denied Ramsey any bonus points and sent them to the bottom of the table.

Vagabonds lost their unbeaten record in the division when they went down 31-25 at Bowdon who were relegated from the league above at the end of last season.

The defeat means Vagas drop to sixth place in the standings.
