Bury Tchoukball Club’s second string continued their surge up the table with two more wins in the National League.

Bury Saints defeated Innov8 Marlborough before coming out on top in the dying seconds against league favourites Leeds Cosmos to win a third game in a row.

The young side, with only one member over 17, came back from behind to beat Leeds and move from seventh to fifth in the second division, level on points with third-placed Portsmouth Ducks.

In the First Division, reigning national champions Bury Kings remain undefeated after victories against the Farnborough Jets and the Portsmouth Drakes.

They currently sit top, four points clear of second-placed Guildford with a healthy goals difference.

Head coach Ian Parker said: “It was remarkable to see such young players coming back like that and beating players who were twice the size of them.

“To go from winning their first-ever game just a few weeks ago, to now having three wins on the trot, is quite unbelievable, and testament what the coaching team here are trying to do.

“The Kings have won all there is to domestically, and while we hope to continue that this season, seeing the Saints play so well offers hope for the future too.”
