Sedge lose — U19s earn Alliance treble

Long Eaton United 2

Liversedge 0

LIVERSEDGE suffered a disappointing defeat on their midweek trip to Nottinghamshire in the Northern Counties East League Premier Division.

Long Eaton had not won in 10 games prior to Tuesday but they took advantage of Sedge’s weary legs following the long journey.

Danny Chambers rifled home the opening goal after 34 minutes. Liversedge had plenty of chances with Cartman striking a post the closest effort.

Long Eaton’s 80th minute goal by Shaun Radford was a terrific shot which Danny Knight had no chance of stopping.

Liversedge were without James Riordan, Damian Hopkins and Rob and Dave Bordman but manager Billy Miller said there were positives to come from the game such as Alex Ferguson who moved into the centre of defence and had a solid game with new signing Nathan Hay coming in at right back bringing plenty of experience.

Liversedge: Knight, Hay, White, Larkin, Wood, Lawler, Ferguson, Shuttleworth (Cooper), Cartman, Hurtley (Thompson 71), Hallam.

LIVERSEDGE Under-19s completed a quickfire derby treble in the Northern Youth Alliance.
