Ramsey survive; RYCOB promoted

There was northern delight in Manx football on Saturday.

Ramsey secured their safety in the Canada Life Premier League with a 3-1 win over Gymns – who are relegated as a result - and they will be joined in the top flight next season by their northern neighbours Ramsey Youth Centre.

They clinched promotion from JCK Division Two on Saturday, despite losing at home.

In the Premier League, an eight second opener from Michael Fernandez set Ramsey on their way to safety.

Matty Christian added the other two goals to see off Gymns at Ballacloan.

Marek Mirvan netted for the Tromode side but it wasn’t enough and they will be playing in Division Two next season.

Ramsey Youth Centre are up, despite losing to their promotion rivals Colby 2-1 at home.

They had led through an own goal but an Adam Fretwell double in the second half kept Colby’s own promotion hopes on course.

Michael United remain favourites though and won 3-1 at Douglas and District, courtesy of goals from Mike Hammond, Matthew Bland and Jason Chatwood.

Daniel Stewart-Clague was on the scoresheet again for D&D.

Douglas Royal overturned a half-time deficit to turn on the style at Foxdale.

They won 5-1 at Billy Goat Park after Liam Cannon had given the home side an interval lead.

A goal in each half from Joe Reece and Michael McCann gave Pulrose a fine 2-0 win at Onchan in the division’s other game.
