Liversedge could finally be set to end their long wait to play a home fixture in the Northern Counties East League.

Jonathan Rimmington’s men are due to entertain Athersley Recreation on Saturday and if the clash gets the green light, it will be the first match played at Clayborn since October 31.

Liversedge will be keen to get the game on, as almost three months without a home fixture has had major financial implications on the club.

Liversedge have strengthened their squad in a bid to pull clear of the Premier Division relegation zone.

The Clayborners have signed 20 year old T’nique Fishley from Ossett Town and experienced central midfielder Adam Jones from Ossett Albion.

Adam Fowler has joined the club from Thackley and played in a training game over Christmas, while Sedge are also hoping to sign Callum Hepworth from Ossett Town.

Sedge face back to back home games as they entertain high flying Handsworth Parramore next Tuesday and on the same night, Liversedge Under-19s are due to travel to Silsden in the Northern Youth Alliance League Pat Rice Trophy.
