THE Royal Marines AFC march on in the South West Peninsula league top flight after a 3-0 win against bottom side Wadebridge.

THE Royal Marines AFC march on in the South West Peninsula league top flight after a 3-0 win against bottom side Wadebridge.

It means the Militarymen are now unbeaten in their last nine League and Cup ties and their comfortable Endurance Park success against the visitors sees them climb to eighth in the table.

Matt Dawson opened the scoring 22 minutes in when he took the ball round the Wadebridge keeper before rolling it into the net.

The second goal arrived on the hour mark and, again, the lively Dawson was the scorer, this time firing home from the edge of the area with a delightful left-footed strike.

Midway through the second period Royal Marines boss, Richard Pears, made a brace of substitutions, introducing Richard Hope and Shea Saunders to the action and it was Saunders who struck the third and final goal with five minutes remaining.

Pears said: “It was a solid performance and the win extends our current unbeaten run to one game shy of double figures. Confidence is rising and, as long as we keep working hard, we’ll continue to climb the table.”

Next up for the Militarymen is Saturday’s Peninsula League trip to South Devon to face Bovey Tracey (2.15pm). With the hosts below the Royal Marines in the table - they sit five places and two points adrift, a victory for Pears’ side would push them further towards a top six berth.
