Walton brace helps Sedge to all three points

LIVERSEDGE FC have climbed to sixth in the Northern Counties East League Premier Division thanks to a 3-1 win away at Rainworth Miners Welfare.

After a disappointing goalless first half the game sparked into life immediately after the restart.

It was Joe Walton who broke the deadlock with a 47th minute strike.

But relegation strugglers Rainworth hit back 10 minutes later thanks to a Nicholas Langford effort.

But Jonathan Rimmington’s Sedge were in determined mood and on the hour mark edged their noses in front courtesy of a Stephen Wales goal.

The visitors were far from home and dry in the latter stages of the contest as Rainworth pushed for another equaliser, but Walton’s second of the afternoon sealed the win for the Clayborn outfit inside the last five minutes.

Liversedge now prepare for a trip to the coast where they will take on third-placed Bridlington Town tomorrow (3pm).
