Adam Patton helped The Ambassadors to a well-earned 4-1 weekend win against Derryhirk United with an assist and spot on the scoresheet.

The derby success on home soil sparked into life when Jordan Anderson slotted home a spot-kick.

Pattson then produced a teasing corner-kick delivery which Ryan Dodds converted courtesy of a decisive header.

Derrykirk hit back to close the gap but a strong finish resulted in two additional goals for The Ambassadors.

Patton added to the tally and Andy Martin wrapped up the scoring with a contribution off the sidelines.

Substitute Martin popped up to convert a rebound after Philip Anderson’s initial free-kick bounced off the crossbar.
