THERE were mixed results for local clubs in the Northern Counties East League as Liversedge were frustrated in their pursuit of top spot in the Premier Division and Campion’s bid for promotion from Division One took another big blow.

For Sedge to ascend the summit in the top tier they would have had to win at Yorkshire Amature, who were fourth, and rely on neighbouring rivals Thackley and Eccleshill United to beat leaders Staveley MW and second-placed Penistone Church respectively.

Jonathan Rimmington’s men failed to keep up their own end of the bargain as they suffered an agonising late blow. They were a goal up going into the final minute thanks to Joe Kenny’s 32nd-minute strike but the Ammers snatched a point courtesy of Roy Fogarty’s last gasp goal.

Thackley helped their local rivals as their impressive result at Staveley saw the leaders drop two points. The Dennyboys had led from the 39th minute thank to Ray Sibanda but Gary Munday levelled with less that a quarter hour remaining to ensure the Trojans stayed top.

Silsden made it back to back 2-0 wins with a home success over Handsworth to stay ahead of their visitors. The Cobbydalers remain 13th after second half goals from Laurence Sorhaindo and Jake Taylor-Mountford.

Albion Sports remain a lowly 16th after they were beaten at home by Barton Town, Jack McMenemy netting the game’s only goal, late in the second half.

Campion slumped to a surprise loss away from home, going down 3-0 at Ollerton Town after a goalless first half.

The home side broke the deadlock in the 78th minute through Lewis Bingham while Ben Partridge and Lewis Murr wrapped up the scoring inside the last five minutes.

Meanwhile, Brighouse Town lost 2-0 at home to Widnes in the Northern Premier League North West and Steeton were hammered 5-1 at Emley in North West Counties League Division One North.

Luke Baldwin scored what turned out to be just a consolation for the Chevrons.
