NINE goals from new North Coffs captain coach Mick young has helped the Kangaroos to a comprehensive 108 point victory against local rivals Coffs Swans.

The Roos kicked 24 goals in a dominant performance at Fitzroy Oval to notch its first win of the season.

Young praised the improvement in his players following last week's loss to Sawtell.

"It was a mixed up squad for us again this week but we learnt a lot this week at training," Young said.

"We stuck to the same structures and played the fast running style of footy I want this team to play.

"There is still a lot to do but the win will help the confidence."

It was tough going once again for the Swans.

Despite the valiant efforts of the Coffs Harbour players they were not able to slow down the North Coffs goal juggernaut.

Despite the gap in the score, Young believes his side must continue to make week to week improvements if they are to take on the competition front runners.

"It is a still a young side and if there is the effort at training we will get better each round," he said.

"The win will probably mean a big turnout at training this week.

"It is only early days but a win like this certainly helps build the confidence and encourages the players to put in the hard yards."

In Saturday's other clash Sawtell showed why it is still one of the best sides in the AFL North Coast competition with a 16.11 (107) - 12.8 (80) victory against Port Macquarie.

A massive final term from the home side saw them kick six goals to claim the come from behind victory.
