ECCLESHILL United suffered a 2-1 defeat at rock-bottom Yorkshire Amateur on Saturday.

The Ammers had only won three Northern Counties East League Premier Division games all season heading into this clash, with their relegation confirmed a while ago.

But their 2-0 win at Hallam the previous weekend, their first since October, suggested they could end the season with a flourish at least.

And they did just that on Saturday at home to Eccleshill, and remarkably could now end the season with three straight victories, if they beat Golcar United in their final game tonight.

Ammers took the lead early on through Jonas Badibalowa on Saturday, and kept that narrow advantage until half-time.

But Eccleshill, down in 16th themselves, fought back after the break, and Jack Cairney levelled the scores up on 49 minutes.

Former Bradford City youngster Dyllan Drovi came up with the winner for Ammers though, netting late on to secure victory for the hosts.

Thackley had a much better afternoon than their neighbours, coasting to a superb 4-0 win in their final game, largely thanks to a Ben Grech-Brooksbank double.

His goals were sandwiched by Frankie Sinfield's opener just before the break and a late strike from player-manager Tom Greaves.

The victory ensured Thackley will finish 14th in the table.

Albion Sports lost 2-1 at home to Knaresborough Town, and subsequently slipped below their visitors into 11th.

Their final game of the season is at Eccleshill tonight, while the Eagles round off their campaign at Bottesford Town on Saturday.

Twelfth-placed Silsden lost 1-0 at home to Garforth Town on Saturday, and they also have two games to go, away to Barton Town tonight and at home to Goole on Saturday.

Campion's promotion party was marked by a sensational game at home to Retford on Saturday, which they won 4-3.

The NCEL Division One champions and their visitors both were forced to play outfield players in goal, so it was no surprise to see a goal fest.

Goals from Patrick Sykes and Sam Bradley ensured Campion were level at 2-2 heading into the break, while another goal from the former after the break was quickly cancelled out.

But Nicky Boshell popped up with a last-gasp winner for the hosts, meaning if they can win against Harrogate Railway Athletic tomorrow night, the Bradford side will have broken the 100-points barrier for the season.

In the North West Counties Football League First Division North, a bittersweet day for Steeton saw them crush rivals Ilkley Town 4-0 at Marley, but a win for Euxton Villa elsewhere put an end to the Chevrons’ play-off hopes.

A superb 4-0 win for Brighouse Town at Ossett United yesterday, backing up their 2-0 home victory over Grimsby Borough on Saturday, means that barring a miracle set of results, the visitors will be playing Northern Premier League East Division football again next season.

A late Liversedge equaliser gave them a 1-1 draw at home to Radcliffe on Saturdau, the visitors having a man sent off immediately before the hosts levelled.

Sedge were beaten 4-0 at Gainsborough Trinity yesterday though, and will probably require at least seven points from their final three Northern Premier League Premier Division games to have a chance of survival.

Guiseley are 11th in that division, stuck in mid-table after following up a 1-1 draw at home to Stalybridge Celtic with a 2-1 defeat against Atherton Collieries.

Finally, in National League North, Farsley Celtic were thumped 4-0 at Boston United on Good Friday, before their relegation six-pointer at home to Blyth Spartans was rained off yesterday.

They are just a point above the drop zone with four games left to play.
