Buxton continued their climb up the league table after a 52-0 thrashing of local rivals Knutsford at Sunnyfields last weekend.

The whitewash saw the Bucks move up to fourth in South Lancashire/Cheshire Division Three after 11 games.

Buxton kicked off and instantly showed their dominance racking up five scores in a try-laden first half through McCoy, Austin, Lomas, Thyer and Armstrong.

The home team played some good running rugby and went in at the break with an unassailable 33-0 lead.

In the second half Buxton showed no mercy and continued to pile on the pressure upon Knutsford.

Passey added another score before Lomas and Armstrong ran in their second of the day.

Skipper Terry Summerfield added six conversions throughout the afternoon as Buxton sealed a seventh of the campaign.

This weekend Buxton travel to Liverpool University.
