LIVERSEDGE produced a stunning comeback to go third in the Northern Counties East League Premier Division last night.

The Clayborn outfit were 3-0 down at half-time away to Handsworth but fought back in the second half to win 4-3.

Sedge looked doomed at the interval following goals from Marley Grant (2) and Joe Parkin.

But they dug deep as goals from Emile Sinclair (50 min) and Michael Bottomley (57) put them right back in the game.

Then leading scorer Joe Walton equalised on 65 minutes with a shot from 20 yards which went in off the post.

And Walton completed a remarkable turnaround with the winner on 80 minutes.

Silsden claimed a 2-2 draw at AFC Mansfield in the same division thanks to a Mark Everingham goal four minutes from time.

The hosts went ahead on the stroke of half-time after Jamie McGuire's thumping header from the half-way line was capitalised on by Ross Duggan, who slotted the ball under Silsden keeper Ben Higginson.

The Cobbydalers were up against it just four minutes into the second half when Brandon Webster made it 2-0 with a long-range effort.

But Josh Brown headed in shortly afterwards to give Danny Forrest's side hope.

Brown glanced wide with another good opportunity but AFC Mansfield could have increased their lead when Grant Ryan was denied by Higginson in a one-on-one.

However, the spoils were shared when Everingham struck a low free-kick into the bottom corner.

Asa Mitchell was the undoubted star of the night for Thackley as he scored a five-minute hat-trick in the Dennyboys' 6-1 West Riding County Cup win at home to Campion.

The Bradford neighbours were level at the break after Tom Ponter equalised for the red and blacks, Jack Boyle having put the hosts in front.

But within less than a quarter of an hour of the second half, the second-round tie was all but over thanks to a quickfire blitz from Mitchell.

His first after 52 minutes was a 25-yard screamer before he slotted home a minute later after Thackley had sliced open the Campion defence.

And four minutes later, Mitchell had his triple, tapping in after a slip by Ben Boddle.

The Dennyboys weren't finished as Owen Murphy added a fifth before Mitchell claimed his fourth goal with a minute left.

Steeton's County Cup second round tie at neighbours Barnoldswick Town was a much closer affair as the Chevrons bowed out on penalties after the sides finished level at 2-2.

Andy Briggs put Roy Mason's men ahead on 55 minutes but Barlick fought back to lead with goals from Reece Barrett (58) and Joel Melia (73).

Briggs bagged his second two minutes later but it the was the West Craven side who held their nerve on spot-kicks. Shaun Airey sealed the tie as Barlick won the shootout 4-2.
