Sedge aim to pile misery on lowly Rangers

LIVERSEDGE will be aiming to boost their Northern Counties East League Premier Division record tomorrow when they travel to Scunthorpe to take on lowly Winterton Rangers.

Sedge bowed out of the League Cup to Scarborough Athletic on Tuesday and now have only the league to concentrate on as they aim to challenge for a top-eight finish.

Winterton lie second-bottom just a point above Lincoln Moorlands Railway, while they are three points adrift of safety, so Eric Gilchrist’s men will be looking to pile further misery on the home side.

Sedge recorded a fine 3-1 win over Arnold Town last Saturday, when Danny Toronczak bagged a brace and Chris Hirst capped a fine game with the other, but they were unable to provide an upset against high fliers Scarborough on Tuesday.

A top-eight finish would see Sedge qualify for next season’s President’s Cup and that must be the aim as the season approaches the halfway point.

Liversedge are holding an evening with Leeds United legend Eddie Gray at Clayborn tonight (start 7.30pm).

Tickets are £15, including a pie and peas supper.
