CAMPION suffered their first league defeat of the season on Saturday, losing 2-0 at home to fellow Northern Counties East League Division One high-flyers North Ferriby.

The hosts went close early on through new boy Joe Jagger, but it was Ferriby who took the lead on 31 minutes through Thomas Corner.

Campion keeper Stephen Kerr made a stunning save from the initial header, but the ball fell perfectly for Corner, who tucked the rebound into the empty net.

Jagger's fellow striker Aidan Kirby was deemed to have dived when he went down under the keeper's challenge, but it was Ferriby who came closest to scoring next, their striker blazing over when one-on-one with Kerr.

Campion dominated possession after the break, but failed to do much with it, and Ferriby made them pay when Iwan Heeley crashed home a free header from a corner with 10 minutes left.

Up in the NCEL Premier Division, Liversedge maintained their 100 per cent record by crushing Goole 6-0 away from home.

Former Bradford (Park Avenue) striker Paul Walker put Sedge in front before the break, but it was in the second half when they really blew away their opponents.

Dynamic duo Oliver Fearon and Joe Walton scored within two minutes of each other to make it 3-0, before talented young midfielder Alfie Raw made it four just after the hour mark.

Walton got his second with 15 minutes left, before new signing Ashley Flynn rounded off a perfect day for the visitors by making it 6-0 in the 83rd minute.

Eccleshill United made a dreadful start at struggling Bottesford Town, going 2-0 down after 25 minutes, but they pulled one back when Sam Awty netted his first goal for the club just before the break.

Eagles skipper Jonny Irving equalised early in the second half following a free-kick, and Awty went close to completing the turnaround with 20 minutes left, but was denied by Ryan Musselwhite.

Elsewhere, Thackley remain third bottom after a 2-0 defeat at Garforth Town.

The Dennyboys were on top in the first half, but saw a Mark Trueman effort disallowed due to interference from Dan Broadbent.

They should have gone into the lead from the penalty spot just before the break, but Ben Grech-Brooksbank saw his effort saved.

Thackley were made to pay in the second half, as goals from Joseph Colley and Sam Barker condemned them to defeat.

They also lost Matt Broadley, Seb Scaroni and Simon Poole to injuries, the latter with a suspected broken arm.

It was a much more positive day for Brighouse Town, who moved off the bottom of the Northern Premier League North West Division with a 2-0 home win over Pontefract Collieries.

Two goals from Jack Boyle proved the difference, although Brig did see Shiraz Khan dismissed late on.

Steeton had an awful day in the North West Counties League First Division North, losing 5-1 at AFC Liverpool. Luke Baldwin grabbed a late consolation goal for the Chevrons.
