Football results: Douglas Royal promoted to Premier League

By Sports desk in Football

Barring a 25 goal-plus swing in goal difference, Douglas Royal will be playing Premier League football next season.

The current JCK Division Two leaders beat Douglas and District 3-0 thanks to a double from Gavin Gawne and a single strike from Sean Trayler to all but seal a top-two place and promotion.

Foxdale can still draw level on points with Royal but their goal difference is 26 less than Royal’s.

The second-tier title remains up for grabs, with a Braddan side who have played five games less than their rivals still in with a mathmatic chance of overhauling Royal.

Elsewhere in Division Two, Castletown’s slim promotion hopes took a near fatal blow as they were held to a 2-2 draw by Gymns.

Town remain in second, but have played seven more games than rivals Braddan.

Onchan sit in third and boosted their Paul Henry Gold Cup with a slender 1-0 win over Marown.

Near the foot of the standings, Malew beat Michael 3-0 thanks to goals from Jordan Krypner, Konrad Kumor and Dean Kinley.

In the top flight, champions St George’s beat second-bottom Union Mills 16-0 at Garey Mooar.

St Mary’s stay second on goal difference after a good 6-1 win over Colby.

Rushen remain third for now after they beat DHSOB 4-1 in their final league game of the season.

Corinthians kept up their bid to claim the division’s runners-up spot with a 5-0 win over Douglas Athletic at a misty Ballafletcher.

Billy Kennaugh’s goal ensured Peel edged past a stubborn Ramsey at Ballacloan.
