Sedge’s winning run halted

Sedge’s winning run halted

Liversedge’s three-game winning run was brought to an end as they lost 2-0 at home to Hemsworth Miners Welfare. 

Richard Collier scored the first goal of the afternoon on 35 minutes to give the visitors the lead. 

Liversedge stayed in the game but were unable to find the equaliser. 

With ten minutes remaining Samuel Jones made sure of the points for Hemsworth as he doubled the lead.

Last Thursday evening, Sedge beat Garforth Town 3-1 away from home. 

Daniel Farrar put the visitors ahead with only six minutes gone and the score remained at 1-0 until half time. 

Joe Walton doubled the advantage three minutes into the second half, however, Mark Simpson halved the deficit two minutes later. 

Sedge continued to dominate proceedings and restored their two-goal cushion as Walton grabbed his second on 79 minutes. 

Elsewhere, Liversedge’s fixture crisis has lessened slightly as all NCEL teams have now been given an extra week to fulfil their fixtures. 

A number of postponements across the division led to NCEL bosses requesting permission from the FA to extend the season. 

And teams now have until May 5 to play all their remaining games, however Sedge will still be required to play 10 games in just four weeks.
