Liversedge manager Jonathan Rimmington has paid tribute to the way his side have turned round their form from last season.

The Clayborners were rock bottom of the Northern Counties East League Premier Division for much of the campaign until an unbelievable run saw them pull clear of relegation.

Liversedge have built on that momentum at this term and are unbeaten in nine matches since losing to AFC Mansfield in their opening league game.

That form has seen Rimmington’s young side move second in the Premier Division table, just a point behind leaders Cleethorpes, after nine games.

They fought back from a goal down against Worksop Town last Saturday and gained a seventh league win thanks to Cody Cromack’s dramatic last-gasp goal.

Rimmington said: “The turn around from last year is quality and for us to compete with Worksop is unbelievable really, although I think we deserved the last minute goal.

“Cody is now still only 18 but he makes the game look so simple.

“He is absolutely unbelievable and a diamond footballer.”

Liversedge turn their attentions to the FA Vase on Saturday when they return to the north east for a second qualifying round tie against Newcastle Benfield.

Sedge disposed of Tornaby 4-1 in the first qualifying round thanks to a brace from Harrison Blakey and further goals by Rhys Davies and Joe Walton.

Benfield play in the division above Thornaby and are currently 12th in Northern League Division One but have only played four league games.

A coach will depart Clayborn at 10.30am and anyone wishing to travel should arrive at 10.15am, with the cost £15 per person.
