Sedge's long awaited home game ends in victory

HAVING played their first home game since October 31 last year Liversedge can celebrate again after their survival hopes were boosted by a 3-1 triumph over  fellow Northern Counties East League Premier strugglers Pontefract Collieries.

James Eyles got the Clayborn side off to a great start with a goal in the 10th minute before doubling his tally shortly after the half-hour mark to make it 2-0.

Liversedge then extended their lead further in the second half when Joe Walton netted in the 67th minute.

The visitors managed a consolation goal through Jack Mawson five minutes from time to take some gloss of Sedge’s performance, but the three points will raise their confidence as their battle to avoid the drop continues.

The Clayborn side remain bottom but have games in hand on their relegation rivals.

Liversedge travel to North Yorkshire where they face Bridlington tomorrow (3pm).
