Sedge humiliate Barton Town Old Boys

LIVERSEDGE have extended their winning run in the Northern Counties East League Premier Division to six games following an 11-0 annihilation of Barton Town Old Boys on Tuesday night.

Liversedge, desperate to pick themselves up quickly following a disappointing 3-0 defeat against Newcastle Benfield last Saturday (Sep 24), went ahead through Joe Walton in the third minute.

Rhys Davies then struck in the eighth minute to double his side’s lead.

Harrison Blakey and Vaughan Redford both found the back of the net inside 20 minutes as Liversedge enjoyed their commanding 4-0 lead.

Walton (two), Davies, Blakey and Redford all scored again before half-time to fire Jonathan Rimmington’s side into a remarkable 9-0 lead.

With the game already over as a contest Liversedge took their foot off the gas in the second half. But despite a drop in intensity the hosts netted twice more through Walton, who rounded off a four-goal haul, and Davies who completed his hat-trick to take the team’s total into double figures.

The victory puts Liversedge top of the Premier Division after 10 games and the Clayborn side hope to still be there following an away clash with second-bottom Parkgate tomorrow (Sat Oct 1, 3pm).
