RICHARD Clarke claimed the bragging rights over former Portadown team-mate Matthew Tipton as Dergview ended a sequence of poor results by defeating newly-crowned champions Warrenpoint Town at Darragh Park on Saturday.


Second half goals by Mattie Buchanan and Ryan Campbell condemned the ‘Point to a rare defeat as the Castlederg outfit rediscovered that winning feeling with a confident display.

The visitors shaded the verdict in terms of possession in the first half but Dergview ruled the roost in the second and ran out thoroughly deserving winners.

Derg coach Gary Mortland was delighted with the response of his players following a run of five defeats.

“The teams effectively cancelled each other out in the first half,” said Mortland.

“Warrenpoint had slightly more possession but we carried the greater threat. We were certainly the stronger of the two teams in the second half.”

Dergview took the lead shortly after the hour mark with Buchanan making his mark by heading an Aaron Walsh corner kick back across goal and into the net with the help of a slight deflection.

Ten minutes from time goal king Campbell made the points safe.

Blaine Burns carved apart the visiting rearguard for the galloping Cashel to put the ball on the proverbial plate with a teasing low cross from the right and Campbell swept it into a gaping net.
