Defending champions St George’s came from behind to maintain their 100 per cent record in the Canada Life Premier League on Saturday.

Furo Davies, Callum Morrissey and Frank Jones were on target as the Geordies saw off spirited visitors.

After a year’s absence, Peel made a winning return to their Douglas Road home.

They brushed aside Laxey 6-1, thanks to goals from Marc Kelly, Dominic McGreevy, Lee Gale (two) Ryan Holdaway and Adam Cregeen.

Talented teenager Joe Walters notched the Miners’ reply.

David Quirk scored the only goal of the game as Old Boys edged out Douglas Athletic at Blackberry Lane.

Colby are off the mark after their first win of the campaign.

Dylan Pickles notched the consolation for Ramsey, whose goalkeeper Matthew Cregeen also saved a penalty.
