CAMPION and Steeton had their first ever North West Counties League First Division North meeting yesterday, and it was the latter who came out on top, winning 2-1 at Marley.

After a quiet start, Kayle Price opened the scoring for the Chevrons after 24 minutes.

A long ball over the top saw a footrace between the forward and Campion stopper Liam Lovell.

It was the former who won it, as he touched the ball past the visiting keeper before stroking it into an empty net.

Steeton went close again soon after, with a header that just cleared the crossbar, but Campion should have levelled when Luke Rhodes somehow could only turn Leon Hurles-Brook's free-kick wide.

Robbie Graham and Mark Ferguson both had chances to score for the Red and Blacks early in the second half, but could not find the target with their efforts.

Steeton defender Tyler Marsh almost turned a square ball into his own net, but was saved by the post, before Chevrons striker Andy Briggs blazed over after beating the offside trap.

But Briggs soon made amends, latching on to Mo Farhan Subhani's through ball with six minutes to go and firing the ball past Lovell to make it 2-0.

Campion substitute Daniel Keane nodded home a Scott Eastwood free-kick deep into injury time, but it was little more than a consolation for the visitors.

Campion did at least get a point on Saturday. They thought they'd secured all three after Marcus Day's first half effort, but an 85th minute Atherton LR equaliser denied them.

Steeton's Saturday game started off so well, with goals from Briggs and Jack Lynn putting them 2-0 up just before the hour mark at home to AFC Blackpool.

But a disastrous spell saw them concede three times in seven minutes, allowing the visitors to steal the points with a 3-2 win.

Mohammed Qasim was the hat-trick hero for Silsden in their superb 6-2 home win over Hemsworth Miners Welfare in the Northern Counties East League Premier Division on Saturday.

He scored twice early on to put the Cobbydalers 2-0 up, before Kane Swinburn's penalty halved the deficit.

Khurram Shazad made it 3-1 just after the break, but an own goal brought Hemsworth right back into the contest.

Jack Normanton and Joe Jagger put the game to bed with two goals in two minutes for Silsden, before Qasim's late strike put the icing on the cake.

Lewis Waddington's goal 15 minutes from time ensured Thackley won 1-0 at home to Staveley Miners Welfare, while a Jayden Sandhu effort and a late Reece Nolan own goal meant Albion Sports won 2-0 against Athersley Recreation.

There are several NCEL games tonight, with the big one seeing Eccleshill host Thackley. Silsden are also playing, and they visit Goole.

Liversedge continue to sparkle following their promotion to the Northern Premier League East Division.

They made it five wins from five after beating Marske United (2-1) and Pontefract Collieries (3-1) over the Bank Holiday Weekend.

Brighouse Town only had the one game in the division over the weekend, but they won too, downing Ossett United 2-0.

Finally, Guiseley had a mixed weekend in the National League North. They got their first win of the season by beating Gloucester City 2-1 on Saturday, but went down by the same scoreline at Gateshead yesterday.
