Liversedge keep it in the family in cup tie

Liversedge keep it in the family in cup tie

FORMER Huddersfield Town footballer Simon Trevitt starred for Liversedge in the Wheatley Cup on Sunday, but he wasn’t the only Trevitt on the teamsheet.

Simon – who played right back for the Terriers between 1984 and 1995 – was joined on the field by son Sam and brother Jonathan as his side took on Birstall A.

Also observing from the comfort of the clubhouse was father Allan, who was able to view two generations of his family perform in Sedge’s cup tie.

Unfortunately for the proud dad it was not a game to remember as the visitors were bowled out for 143.

The Trevitts did star with the bat, with opener John picking up 18 runs, Simon holding up the middle order with 26 and son Sam adding a valuable 13 runs late in the first innings.

However, it proved in vain as only two other Sedge batsman reached double figures on the way to an under-par score.

The home side made light work of the total as they eased to victory with only three wickets down.

Man-of-the-match Richard Hobson assured victory as he hit an unbeaten 80 off just 70 balls.

• Scholes, currently top of the Central Yorkshire League Premier Division, carry the district banner into the quarter-final of the Heavy Woollen Cup on Sunday when they take on Methley at New Popplewell Lane.

Holders Hanging Heaton completed a miserable cup week when, having bowed out of the ECB competition at Chesterfield on Sunday they missed out to Kirkburton on Wednesday night, on a bowl out, for the chance to entertain Bradford League leaders Woodlands in the last eight.

In the other ties Delph and Dobcross are at home to Pudsey Congs while Shepley play Townville.
