Celtic prop up NCL Division Two table

DEWSBURY Celtic’s woes continued in the new National Conference League Division Two campaign after they lost 48-16 away at fellow strugglers Blackbrook – a result which roots the green and whites to the foot of the table.

With both teams entering the game in search of their first win of the season it was Blackbrook who showed much more intent on home soil.

Mark Webster, Stephen Nash and Danny Fairhurst all bagged themselves a try for the hosts and Aaron Hewit hit three conversions to give his side a commanding 18-0 advantage after just 20 minutes.

Celtic showed some resolve after an atrocious start and got a foothold in the game thanks to tries from Josh Brook, Jermaine Akaidere and a conversion from Matty Sheridan.

A Scott Lyon try for Brook gave the hosts a comfortable 24-10 half-time lead.

Brook then all but sealed the win with another two tries early in the second half. Scott Davidson and Joe Bate were the players to touch down.

Sheridan’s converted try gave te West Town side a glimmer of hope but two further tries from Andy Tucker and Jonathan Glover rounded off a dominant win for the hosts.

Celtic play host to Salford City Roosters to Crow Nest Park tomorrow (Sat, 2.30pm).
