Five-star Sedge go fifth

LIVERSEDGE thrashed Armthorpe Welfare 5-0 to go fifth in the Northern Counties East League Premier.

Jonathan Rimmington’s men went ahead on 12 minutes through Joe Walton before Vaughan Redford doubled his side’s advantage 10 minutes later.

Armthorpe were never really in the game and did little to cause the home side any concern leading up to half-time.

Sedge quickly capitalised on their opponents’ lack of urgency and all but sealed the win courtesy of Stephen Wales’s strike three minutes before the break.

In the second period two quick-fire goals in the 64th and 65th minutes, from Tom Jackson and Rhys Davies, ensured Sedge could enjoy the rest of the game.

The Clayborn side’s next outing is away at Staveley Miners Welfare (Saturday August 20, 3pm).
