Dergview comprehensively defeated Limavady United at The Showgrounds in what was an important clash at the bottom of the table.

Emmett McGuckin opened the scoring for Dergview with just over half-an-hour on the clock with a perfectly drilled finish past Paul Wells from just outside the box.

It was a lead they held at the break and duly doubled early in the second half. A cross from wide on the right was twice blocked inside the box but, as play continued, it was adjudged that Andrew Sproule had forced the ball over the line.

Then, five minutes after that, player-manager Ivan Sproule made it 3-0 with a glancing header from Andrew Sproule's right-sided cross.

Dergview added a fourth with a quarter-of-an-hour remaining with McGuckin's second of the afternoon after Andrew Sproule had outpaced Gareth McFadden to send over the decisive ball.

United did grab a consolation on 81 minutes through Hugh Carlin when he forced the ball home off the shin of a defender at the back post.
