LIVERSEDGE were dumped out of the West Riding County Cup 3-2 by Evo-Stik First Division North side Farsley Celtic on Tuesday night (Oct 4).
In what proved to be a titanic first round battle Farsley went ahead through Richard Marshall on the stroke of half-time.
Celtic then doubled their lead soon after the break through Jacob Hazell.
But Liversedge have been in fine form all season and were determined to find a way back into the game.
Vaughan Redford gave the away side a lifeline with a goal on the hour mark and Sedge were jubilant when Redford completed his brace eight minutes later to draw his side level.
Alex Davidson hit back immediately for Celtic to silence the away support and despite two late chances for Liversedge Jonathan Rimmington’s men were unable to find an equaliser.
The Clayborn side still have a lot to celebrate, however. Rimminton’s men overcame Parkgate 1-0 away last Saturday to remain top of the NCEL Premier.
In a hard-fought encounter both sides were level at the break, but a Steven Wales strike in the 52nd minute was enough to seal the win for Sedge.
Rimmington’s high-flyers host Garforth Town tomorrow (Sat Oct 8, 3pm) looking to maintain their place at the summit of the Premier Division.
