CITY of Armagh RFC Youth teams were in action at the Palace Grounds on Saturday as they resumed their league campaigns.

The U18s picked up their points without having to kick a ball following the late notification from Ballyclare U18s that they would not be travelling.

While this was frustrating for the U18s, the outcome will mean Armagh U18s remain top of their league.

The U16s faced a much fancied Ballyclare side who were in second place in the league. However the Armagh team played with an intensity right from the outset and ended 27-12 winners to remain top of their league.

James Crummie, Philip Nichol, RJ McCall and James Agnew bagged a try a piece, with Dillon Fox adding two conversions and a penalty.

The U14s followed up with their 36-12 win over Lurgan last Friday night, with another 48-0 win over a physical Ballyclare U14s side.

Matthew Maguire opened the scoring and a further seven tries followed from Matthew Nichol, Lee Nesbitt, Lewis Crozier, Jack Armstrong with Michael Burnett bagging three tries and two conversions.

William Lowes also converted two of the eight tries scored on the day. This result keeps the U14s near the top of the league with games in hand to catch up on.
