Midweek Match Review

11th April, 2008

Liversedge are this season's Presidents Cup winners after a thrilling extra-time victory at Armthorpe Welfare.

Going into the game tied at 1-1 from the first leg, it was the hosts who struck first with Gary Jones finding the net after just sixteen minutes.

Sedge levelled, however, after a penalty was awarded for handball just before the break that Nicky Boshell coolly converted.

That is how it stayed until extra-time when a double salvo in the opening five minutes of the first period sealed the tie.

Luke Sherman and Andy Markham made sure of the victory, 3-1 on the night and 4-2 on aggregate, that saw Liversedge lift the trophy for the first time.

Meanwhile, the race for second place in both the Premier Division and Division One took another intriguing twist.

A last minute penalty by Joe Connor gave Pickering Town a 2-1 win at home to Eccleshill United.

The Pikes had gone behind to a Marcus Edwards strike on 52 minutes but they quickly cancelled that out through Richard Whitfield before the late drama saw them snatch the victory.

It moved them up into third spot, two points behind second-placed Glapwell with a game in hand.

Hall Road Rangers, meanwhile, are now favourites to take runners-up spot in Division One after their 2-1 win at bottom side Pontefract Collieries.

That moved them above rivals Rainworth Miners Welfare and Bottesford Town into second.

Andrew Haywood and Paul Palmer gave them a two-goal cushion before Ponte grabbed a late consolation by Andrew Lanes.
