Travel sickness isn’t an ailment that Burnley need to be concerned about after they clocked up their second successive win on the road.

After edging past local rivals Nelson and Colne by a solitary point last month, Burnley climbed to seventh in the Lancashire (North) hierarchy with a 36-5 win against Garstang.

The club’s third win in four outings was sparked by Luca Angelone’s opener while Sam Mounsey added the extras.

The hosts responded with an unconverted try but Burnley’s strong scrum led to Simon Finnan adding to the score before Mounsey took care of the rest.

Adam Wallis then capped an excellent solo run with a try to ensure the visitors took a 16-point cushion in to the interval.

After the break, Cody Fell made the pressure pay when bagging a drop goal while Finnan claimed his second try of the afternoon once Dom Murphy mounted a blind side break and fed Tom McGuiness who supplied the assist.

And in the final play Wallis added to his tally to complete the scoring.

Elsewhere, Burnley RUFC’s third string enjoyed a comfortable 34-0 victory over Vale of Lune on home soil. Reece Paterson grabbed a brace while Ashton Allen and Mark Hanson were also among the scorers.

The firsts are at home tomorrow against Hutton and the second and third teams face a journey to tackle Aspull and Rossendale (kick offs 3 p.m.).

On Sunday the under 9’s through to the under 12’s are at Bury, the under 15 side entertain Bury and the girls play Littleborough on home soil at 1 p.m.
