Head coach Clem Boyd is pleased with his recent acquisition. He said: "Scott has proved an ideal link for us and long may it continue as we strive to regain AIL status."

Carrickfergus put an error-strewn first half behind them to run away 36-3 winners over Omagh II.

Carrick half-backs Simon White and Shane Kelly controlled the game and it was an accurate chip ahead by the former that set up the first try for Ciaran Wilson.

Just after the restart, Brian Alexander took play into the opposing '22' where Mattie Hadden intercepted for Kelly to goal.

Two minutes later, a Kelly break allowed flanker Ryan McGonigle to race in.

Carrick were 19-3 up and strong carries by Paul Greenaway and Chris Rodgers led to White's second. With 10 minutes to go Johnny Sheriff scored and in injury-time Alan Whitley added another converted score.

Results: Cooke 10 Enniskillen 19, Carrickfergus 36 Omagh II 3, Clogher Valley 17 Grosvenor 21, Randalstown 3 Armagh II 23, Portadown 14 Larne 0, Instonians 29 Ballymoney 10, CIYMS 19 Dromore 30, Ballyclare 55 Malone II 7.
