Campion strike late to knock Liversedge out of cup

CAMPION came from behind to knock Liversedge out of the West Riding County Cup in the first round on Wednesday night (2-1). 

The tie originally had to be postponed at the beginning of October due to a waterlogged pitch at Campion.

After Sedge’s home league match against Goole had to be called off for the same reason last weekend, they were finally back in action in the local cup.

They looked to be heading for the next round when Shane Hamilton gave them the lead midway through the first half with his first goal of the season.

Daniel Facey struck two minutes before half-time to level things up at the break, setting up a competitive second half as both sides went for the win.

Liversedge couldn’t find the target in the second period though, allowing Aidan Day to send Campion into the second round in the final minute.

The Clayborners return to NCEL Premier Division duty tomorrow (Saturday, kick-off 3pm) with a trip to Eccleshill United, looking to build on an impressive start to the season which has seen them win seven and lose only one of their first nine games.

They then switch competitions again three days later (Tuesday, kick-off 7.45pm) as Goole visit in the third round of the NCEL League Cup.
