LIVERSEDGE came out comfortably on top against Eccleshill United, as the two sides clashed at The Mitton Group Stadium on Saturday in the Toolstation Northern Counties East League Premier Division.

Visitors Sedge, who had been scoring goals for fun already this season, ran out 4-0 winners in a one-sided derby, as Kevy Tarangadzo netted a first half brace.

Those strikes came after the prolific Oliver Fearon’s opener in the 15th minute, meaning the game was virtually over as a contest before half-time.

Despite creating a few chances of their own, including a couple for debutant Danial Softley, Eccleshill rarely worked Sedge stopper Jordan Porter.

And the away side rubbed salt into the wounds on the hour mark, as new signing Adam Porritt made it four with a neat finish. Sedge now sit third with three wins from three.

Like Eccleshill, Thackley also conceded four goals, losing 4-2 at home to Maltby Main.

But a great start for the Dennyboys saw Morgan McCusker-Butcher and Asa Mitchell put them 2-0 up after 20 minutes.

The former netted his first goal for Thackley by netting from a pull back, before Mitchell headed home at the near post from a Jack Normanton corner.

Crucially, the visitors scored two late first half goals to bring themselves level at the break, before they went ahead for the first time with a penalty on the hour mark.

An end to end game ensued, and with Thackley pushing for an equaliser, they were caught on the break in the 88th minute, as Maltby wrapped the game up with their fourth.

Silsden got their first league victory of the season, beating Goole AFC, who have already won at Eccleshill and Albion Sports this season, 3-2 at home.

Lethal front men Khurram Shazad and Antony Brown both netted for the Sils in an enthralling first half, which saw the two teams go in level at the break at 2-2.

And a late own goal in Silsden’s favour settled the contest with 15 minutes to go.

Campion are still flying high at the top of Division One, as goals for Aidan Kirby, from the spot, and Mohammad Qasim ensured a 2-1 home win over Rossington Main.

The Red and Blacks have maximum points from their opening four games.

Steeton suffered a heartbreaking opening day 3-2 defeat away to phoenix club Bury AFC in the North West Counties League First Division North.

Bury went 1-0 up early on, but Steeton’s new signing Ben Wignall, who has come in from Silsden, netted a free kick to equalise.

After that, Steeton were indebted to a stunning performance in goal from Jordan Moorhouse, who continuously kept the rampant hosts at bay.

Andy Briggs incredibly put Steeton in front with 10 minutes to go, but two goals in injury time from former Bradford (Park Avenue) striker Tom Greaves saw Bury snatch victory.
