Blow for Braddan
Union Mills were hammered by Laxey in the Canada Life Premier League on Saturday.
It means they’re not certain of top flight survival.
John Callow, Aidan Cummins (two), Sean Gavin (two), Matthew Wilkinson and Matthew Rennie were on target for Laxey in a 7-2 success.
Ronan McDonnell and Will Miller found the net for the Millers who face an important clash with Ramsey in midweek.
Peel are still chasing the title and hoping leaders St George’s slip up.
The westerners romped to an 11-2 triumph at already relegated Ramsey Youth Centre.
Hat-tricks from strike partners Josh Kelly and Ashley Webster and further goals from Lee Gale (two), Daniel Bell, Daniel Lace and Tom Wood sealed a rout.
It capped a special day for Lace who was given the captaincy for the match to mark a record 687th appearance for the club.
It’s advantage second placed Castletown in JCK Division Two.
That’s after Braddan were held to a 1-1 draw for the second time in four days.
It could have been worse but for Andy Glover’s equaliser deep into stoppage time.
Glover had earlier missed two penalties after Gavin Gawne gave Royal the lead.
It’s a real blow to Braddan’s promotion hopes.
Douglas & District and Foxdale shared four goals with regular marksman Daniel Clague-Stewart and Kevin Doyle, with a free-kick, the D&D scorers.
