LIVERSEDGE sent Maltby Main crashing to the foot of the Northern Counties East League Premier Division last Saturday after inflicting an 11th defeat of the season on the home side.

It was a solid display by the Clayborners, who were delighted to keep a clean sheet as goalkeeper Danny Knight had little to do against the strugglers.

Sedge took a 10th minute lead when Jamie Wasley fed a through ball to Alex Hallam and his shot was deflected in for an own goal by Maltby defender Jamie Beaumont.

The second came after half an hour when Wasley found Chris Hannay who crossed and Nathan Cartman slid in to meet the ball with a beautiful sliding volley that gave the goalkeeper no chance.

Wasley hit a post after a good pass by Cartman, while Wasley then set up Hallam but he headed wide as Liversedge continues to dominate.

Liversedge created further scoring chances bit they had to wait until the 65th minute for the match-clinching third goal, which came from another well-worked move.

A good passing move ended with the ball being played into Hallam and he was allowed time to turn inside the area and produce a neat finish as Liversedge returned with three much needed points.

New signing Scott Driscoll came off the bench for the final 20 minutes to make his Liversedge debut having joined from Brighouse Town, while victory marked a winning return for manager Billy Miller, who returned to the dugout following a spell working in Africa
