IT WAS another frustrating day for Silsden at the Cobbydale Construction Stadium as they slipped to a 1-0 defeat to rock-bottom Abbey Hey in the North West Counties Premier Division.

It was a difficult game in blustery conditions and the Manchester-based side made the most of the vicious wind being a leveller. They picked up only their fourth win of the season courtesy of a single goal.

Ollie Walker let fly from distance in the 69th minute and in the blink of an eye the ball was past Sils keeper Callum Jakovlevs and into the bottom corner.

This was a great chance to get the win that would have taken them back into the top half of the table but instead the Cobbydalers remain in 12th place.

Steeton also failed to beat a side below them in the table as they were held to a 1-1 draw AFC Blackpool.

The Chevrons let some good chances pass by, but they eventually got their noses in front when Aaron Hollindrake netted a shot on the turn five minutes before the break.

It looked as though their first half profligacy wouldn’t cost them but the hosts, who had been the better side in the second half, grabbed an 84th-minute equaliser through Jake Darnell.

The draw saw Steeton drop one place to 13th – immediately above Blackpool with the gap still three points.
