Five-star Liversedge crush Armthorpe

LIVERSEDGE FC have kept alive their hopes of a play-off spot in the Northern Counties East League Premier Division with a thumping 5-2 win away at Armthorpe Welfare.

Rhys Davies got the visitors off to a flying start with a goal on four minutes.

But the hosts, who are perilously close to the drop zone, battled hard and equalised through Liam Radford.

Welfare, in fact, began to dominate proceedings in the first half an hour and went ahead thanks to Radford’s second of the match, this time from the penalty spot.

But the Clayborn side were desperate to get the first win of the calendar year under their belts and so they hit back straight away with a goal courtesy of Joe Walton to ensure the teams went into half-time level at 2-2.

The second half belonged to the visitors, though.

Vaughan Reford gave Jonathan Rimmington’s visitors the lead before Walton completed his brace in the 73rd minute and secure the three points for Sedge.

The away side pushed late on for a fifth goal and it came courtesy of an Adam Storrie own goal in stoppage time.

Sedge will hope to continue their push for a play-off place when they welcome Staveley Miners Welfare to Clayborn tomorrow (3pm).
