CAMPION underlined the size of Dean Windass' task as new boss of East Hull as they inflicted a 5-0 defeat on the Northern Counties East League Division One basement side.

The former Bantams and Hull City legend was appointed at the helm in midweek, though his first game is not until next Saturday.

Andy Watts was in charge for a final time of the club formerly known as East Yorkshire Carnegie but he couldn’t sign off with a win as Campion took all three points in emphatic style, making it ten straight league defeats for their hosts.

Leon Hurles-Brook bagged a first-half brace, and Myles Foley and Andy McCreadie both added after the break before Aidan Day made it a nap hand in injury-time. The win lifted Campion up to fifth and they are now five points off the top with a game in hand.

Penistone Church are the new leaders of the NCEL top tier after a 5-1 home win over Eccleshill United.

The Eagles’ recent signing Nicky Boshell started for the first time and he marked his full debut with a 55th minute goal, but the visitors already had a 3-0 lead at that point.

The home side got an early grip on the game as Andy Ring broke the deadlock in the 16th minute and Jordan Coduri added from the penalty spot three minutes later. Keeper Brad Emmerson had committed the foul as he came out to meet an attacker.

Ring bagged a second before Boshell’s header gave the Eagles hope, which was soon extinguished as Coduri bagged his brace before Ring completed his hat-trick.

Thackley also shipped five goals as Staveley MW ran out 5-2 winners at Dennyfield.

The Trojans also grabbed an early two-goal lead as Jonathan Froggatt opened the scoring in the seventh minute and Matt Parkin netted in the 11th. Robson Dooley made it three just three minutes into the second half.

Staveley’s Micky Burke added a fourth before Asa Mitchell cut the arrears, only to see Parkin then bag his brace, the two goals coming within seconds of each other around the 70 minute mark. Ben Grech-Brooksbank netted a last-minute consolation for the Dennyboys.

Albion Sports lost 3-0 at struggling Barton Town as the home side netted two late goals. Tom Waudby had given the hosts a first-half lead on the half-hour mark.

Ed Rogerson finally doubled the Swans’ lead in the 83rd minute and Waudby bagged his brace in the last minute to give Barton a second win of the season, which lifted them from second bottom and above Eccleshill.

The rain thwarted Liversedge and Silsden as both had home games - against Yorkshire Amateur and Handsworth respectively - postponed.

Steeton earned a rare win as they won in the North West Counties Division One North for the first time since the opening day of the campaign. Kayle Price netted in each half as the Chervons beat Pilkington 2-0, leapfrogging the St Helens-based club.

Brighouse Town suffered a 2-1 defeat in the BetVictor North West Division at Prescot Cables.

The home side took a two-goal lead into the break after George Hassall and Matty Hamilton had both scored. Second-half substitute Eddie Church pulled a goal back but Town couldn’t find an equaliser.
