Hats off to Jonathan Rimmington and his Liversedge squad. Confronted by no less than thirteen games between last night’s trip to Garforth and the end of the season, , they got that run of matches off to a flying start with a 3-1 win at Cedar Ridge –and Jonathan felt that his players were worthy winners at the Supply Chain Network Stadium, writes Colin Muncie.
Danny Farrar got the ball rolling for the visitors with a goal on six minutes, through which ‘Sedge led at the interval. Joe Walton doubled the lead on 48 mins, and although the prolific Mark Simpson got the Miners back in the game on 50 minutes, the similarly predatory Walton’s second sealed the points eleven minutes from time. A crowd of 115 watched the game.
Jonathan told the Bootiful Game “We changed our system last night against Garforth and every one of the players who played was fantastic. We pushed them back for the first 15 to 20 minutes but then they changed their system, and they started moving the ball a little quicker- but we coped pretty well with most things. The second half started with us once again being the aggressors and it was no real surprise when we went two up through big Joe. We then got sloppy and in one of the very few times they cut us open, they got one back. For ten minutes we seemed to lose concentration and Garforth could have equalised, but we were always dangerous and Joe hit the inside of the post before he powered in a great header. We could even have a fourth through Danny Farrar’s penalty but he blasted it over the bar. I don’t know how many penalties we’ve missed this year -but it’s a few. I thought we deserved the win and we competed really well”.
Jonathan’s attention turned to Saturday’s home game with eighth-placed Hemsworth Miners Welfare “Now it’s onto Hemsworth and that is going to be a tough game” he said “They are always competitive and a real threat. We let ourselves down at their ground earlier in the league so we will need to compete, but I’m sure we will- hopefully”.
