No change at the summit

It’s as you were at the top of the Sure Mobile Premier League.

Peel maintained their five point lead at the top, overcoming battling Ayre United 3-1 at Douglas Road, courtesy of goals from Juan Killip, Rob Cottier and Kevin Megson.

Phil Quayle netted the Ayre reply.

However, reigning champions St George’s remain very much on their heels after seeing off Union Mills 4-0 at Glencrutchery Road, thanks to a Chris Bass junior double, James McStay and Callum Morrissey.

Rushen’s fine season continued as braces from Josh Kelly and Aaron Hawley secured a 4-0 home success over Corinthians, while Old Boys gained the result of the day with a memorable 3-2 win at Laxey.

Lee Cowley put the Miners in front and they looked well on top early on but two quick goals, via a Robbie Ward penalty and Callum Stewart, turned the match on its head.

Ross Williamson restored parity within a minute of the re-start but Craig Stewart grabbed the winner to spark Old Boys celebrations and dent Laxey’s Railway Cup qualifying hopes at the same time as boosting their own.

The battle of the newly promoted sides went Michael United’s way as they overcame a half-time deficit to win 3-1 at home to Colby.

Colby led through Craig Gelling but goals from Jamie Moffitt, Johnny Holland and Dean Wales earned Michael a victory against their bogey side last season.

Gymns remain rooted to the bottom and look like facing a long winter after going down 4-2 at Ramsey, who have picked up a useful tally of points so far in their bid to avoid a relegation battle.

Ramsey led throughout with two goals apiece from Ashley Webster and Steve Cleator.

Gymns replied through David Rees and Ben Carling but it wasn’t enough to earn a point.
