THACKLEY found themselves 2-0 ahead at Silsden but their opponents hit back to win 4-2 in the West Riding County FA U21 Floodlit League.

Callum Brewster put Thackley in front and Joe Hughes made it 2-0 at the break. But a second-half hat-trick from substitute Nicky McNally and a fine curling effort from Luke Baldwin turned the game on its head.

Silsden did not enjoy such fortunes at home to Tadcaster Albion as they lost 4-0. After an even first hour, Tadcaster scored twice in five minutes to take control and they extended their lead before a last-minute penalty completed the scoring.

Silsden also suffered a 2-0 loss at Campion, who took a deserved lead after 25 minutes and scored a second near the end.

Thackley remain bottom of the league after their 4-0 loss against i2i International Academy.

Brighouse Town gave a brave performance at home to leaders Harrogate Town and deserved a share of the points in a 1-1 draw. A defensive mistake led to Harrogate opening the scoring but Brighouse fought back and saw Jack Normanton score a deserved equaliser.

Brighouse also hit the post and had the ball cleared off the line.

Town were beaten 4-2 at Malt Shovel, finding themselves 2-0 behind after only 17 minutes but they reduced the arrears when man of the match Warren Hildred was brought down in the penalty area and James Parkinson converted the spot kick.

Malt increased their lead again before Parkinson netted again in the 53rd minute but Malt had the final word with another goal against the run of play.

Brighouse assistant Barry Thomas said: "Against a much older, experienced and aggressive Malt Shovel side, they seemed to intimidate us and we found it very difficult to get into the game."

Town's third match in the space of a week resulted in a 1-0 defeat against Knaresborough Town in difficult conditions.

Bradford Park Avenue under-19s remain rooted at the foot of the Northern Alliance League following heavy defeats, 8-0 at Huddersfield YMCA and 7-0 at Ossett Albion.
