LIVERSEDGE romped to victory in the final of the Yorkshire Trophy on Saturday, dismantling Penistone Church 4-0 in the final at Brighouse Town's Yorkshire Payments Stadium.

The two sides had reached the showpiece after impressive victories, with both recording 3-0 wins last Wednesday against Brighouse and Golcar United respectively.

And it was Sedge who made the most of that momentum in the final.

Experienced defender John Cyrus opened the scoring with a towering header after just five minutes, and his side dominated the early stages.

But Penistone grew into game, and Sedge were indebted to two good saves just before the break from Jordan Porter, which allowed them to preserve their slender advantage.

Crucially, Sedge netted a second straight after the break courtesy of new boy Gavin Allott, before Oliver Fearon netted with a sensational overhead kick to make it 3-0.

Jonathan Rimmington's side wrapped up the win in injury time when they forced an own goal from Church player Luke McGinnell.

In the third place play-off, which took place a few hours before the final, Brighouse found themselves 2-0 down after 35 minutes to Golcar, but hit back in first half injury time through Harrison Beeden.

A Kyro Lawrence own goal drew Brig level, and it looked as if the comeback was complete when Jack Boyle gave them a 65th minute lead.

But Golcar equalised in the final 10 minutes to make it 3-3, and it was they who prevailed 4-3 on penalties, with Sam Reed and Declan Lambton missing for Brighouse.
