Reigning champions, Park Bar moved two points clear on the summit of the Premier Division table with a slender victory over Abercorn.

That win ensured Park replaced Top of the Hill Celtic at the top as the Waterside men slipped up against an in-form Lisahally side.

Lisahally have been enjoying a promising start to their league campaign and look likely contenders for the title should they keep these results coming.

Elsewhere Trojans scored nine past Ballymoor in a superb victory for the Creggan men.

In an exciting derby match at Culmore Point, Culmore defeated Culmore Colts.

And Phoenix recorded a fine win over Tristar, Derry City secured maximum points against Oxford Stars and Campbell’s defeated Crescent.

Results - Lisahally 2, Top of the Hill Celtic 0; Abercorn 1, Park Bar 2; Derry City 2, Oxford Stars 1; Culmore Colts 1, Culmore 2; Ballymoor 0, Trojans 9; Crescent 2, Campbell’s 4; Tristar 0, Phoenix 1.

Sympathy

Everyone connected with Lisahally F.C. and the D&D would like to express their condolences to the family and friends of Dermot McCloskey who sadly died suddenly last week.

May he rest in peace.
