Campile advance to second place

CAMPILE UNITED wrestled second spot from North End United on Sunday as they heaped further misery on Forth Celtic. The two locked horns at Tom O'Neill Park and a handsome 5-2 victory for the home side helped them above North End and left Celtic stuck in the bottom two.

Campile shouldn't get too comfortable there though, as they have played six more games than North End.

One side with a tad more realistic chance of battling it out with Shamrock Rovers and North End at the end of the season is Moyne Rangers. A 4-2 away victory for them over Courtown Hibs saw them move onto twelve points with six games played. Ricky Dwyer landed two goals for Rangers against Hibs, with Richie Farrell and Pa O'Rourke also on target.

Rovers were in action last weekend. Well, sort of. They faced bottom side New Ross Town but the dour weather saw that tie being brought to a premature halt.

Park Hotspur may have wished their match suffered a similar fate but instead the Wexford town crew finished up on the wrong end of a 5-2 scoreline. Seán Pailing and Peter Marsden both scored for the hosts, but Bohs rocketed up four places thanks to strikes from Eddie Lawlor, Jason Swords, Lee Chin, Gary Byrne and Dermot Flood.
