ECCLESHILL United extended their unbeaten run in the Northern Counties East League to ten games as they beat Premier Division leaders Yorkshire Amateur 2-1.

It was the Eagles’ toughest test but they came through with flying colours in an entertaining game at the Mitton Group Stadium.

The home side drew first blood when Ryan Hargreaves opened the scoring in the 14th minute following some excellent play.

In such a tight game it was no surprise that Hargreaves’ strike, his first for the club, was the only goal of the first half.

The Ammers got back on level terms in the 69th minute, Devonte Newman-Morton rounding Eccleshill keeper Dom Smith before slotting in.

But the Eagles didn’t have long to wait to restore their lead as Andy Cooper went on a storming run from midfield before lashing a shot into the far corner just seven minutes later.

Liversedge also pulled off an excellent result with a home win against one of the top sides in the division.

Jonathan Rimmington’s men beat Wayne Benn’s Hemsworth MW, who are third, courtesy of a late goal from Kevy Tarangadzo.

Thackley picked up a win away from home. After coming back from 3-1 down at Hall Road Rangers, Pat McGuire’s side won 4-3.

The Dennyboys had two debutants in their ranks with young keeper Alfie Stevens-Neale in the starting line-up and Jack Normanton on the bench.

Stevens-Neale was beaten after just 12 minutes when a ball in the area took several deflections before being slotted in by Reagan Waud.

Jerry White equalised right on the stroke of half-time but Rangers hit back with two goals in quick time just before the hour mark, a brace from Danny Earl seemingly taking the game away from the visitors.

Normanton came off the bench in the 56th minute and, after Asa Mitchell had pegged one of the goals back, the substitute took over. Normanton netted the equaliser in the 64th minute and bagged the winner five minutes later.

There was no joy for Albion Sports as they went down to a 1-0 defeat at basement outfit Goole AFC, Mohammed Hamid’s 55th minute goal winning it for the home side.

Campion consolidated their leadership of Division One with a hard-earned 2-1 home win over a Hallam side that could have overtaken them.

The Sheffield side were five points behind James Bicknell’s men but they have two games in hand. That gap is now up to eight points and Hallam have dropped from fourth to sixth.

Lee Bradshaw gave Campion a 39th minute lead with the only goal of the first half. The visitors levelled through Jack Waddle just five minutes after the interval.

Campion had to be patient but their concentration and determination paid off as their former Albion forward Omar Habeeb netted a penultimate minute winner.
