A SENSATIONAL second half comeback from Liversedge saw them win 5-2 at home to Newcastle Benfield on Saturday and move into the FA Vase Second Round.

After both sides suffered early injuries, Benfield keeper Andrew Grainger had to be on top form to stop Sedge from going ahead, while the home side also saw a header strike the post.

But Nicky Boshell did score for the hosts after 23 minutes when he bundled home from a corner.

Despite further great chances for Sedge, the score looked set to stay at 1-0 going into the break, but the hosts were stunned when Peter Glen-Ravenhill equalised with a superb volley in the 45th minute.

Things got worse when 43-year-old striker Paul Brayson, who used to play for Newcastle United and Cardiff City, put the visitors in front when he chipped home two minutes after half-time.

But Boshell scored a second scruffy goal to level on the hour mark, before Oliver Fearon put Sedge in front with 15 minutes to go.

That seemed to deflate Benfield, who conceded a fourth to Kevy Tarangadzo soon after, and a late fifth to Joe Walton.

In the Northern Counties East League Premier Division, Silsden beat Thackley 1-0 in a tightly-contested Bradford District derby.

The Dennyboys went close on 27 minutes when striker Chris Lever forced a good save out of Cobbydalers stopper Alfie Darke.

Other than that, the Sils probably just edged it, with Khurram Shazad and Mark Simpson both going close.

Silsden should have netted on two occasions straight after the break. Thackley’s keeper Luke Wilson had to make a fine save to deny them, before they hit the bar after a mad scramble.

It quietened down after that, but with five minutes to go, Silsden won it.

Leon Hurles-Brook scampered away down the right before finding Chris Wademan, who gleefully fired home.

Wademan went close to putting some gloss on the scoreline, with Wilson denying him in the 88th minute, but in the end, one goal was enough for the Cobbydalers.

Eccleshill United’s home game with Staveley Miners Welfare was called off due to a waterlogged pitch.

Meanwhile, Campion are clinging on to top spot in Division One of the NCEL, after they lost an extraordinary match 5-4 at Parkgate.

Parkgate went 1-0 up early on through Frederick Tracey, but a brace from Sean Hunter and a Joe Jagger goal put Campion 3-1 up at the break.

Zakaria Khalifa pulled one back for the hosts, but Aidan Kirby restored Campion’s two-goal advantage almost immediately.

Jamie Austin scored Parkgate’s third, before he levelled things up with 10 minutes left.

After that, it was left to Sam Ackroyd to complete a stunning turnaround for Parkgate, as he netted an 89th minute winner.

Finally, Brighouse Town are out of the FA Trophy after suffering a 2-0 home defeat to Buxton in the third qualifying round. Second half goals from James Walshaw and Reece Styche won it for the visitors.
