STEETON ended the Bank Holiday weekend in better fashion than how they started it with a 2-1 win over their local rivals Campion.

A record Marley attendance witnessed the North West Counties League Division One North clash.

The Chevrons found themselves in the lead against the run of play in the 23rd minute after Kayle Price rounded Liam Lovell to tap into an empty net.

Andy Briggs latched onto a Mo Farhan Subhani through ball to add a second for the hosts with six minutes remaining.

But a clean sheet again proved elusive for Steeton, with Daniel Keane heading home a Scott Eastwood free-kick to halve the deficit in the third minute of injury time.

After a slow start, Campion registered the first shot on target in the 12th minute when Marcus Day found himself in behind the Steeton defence, but his tame effort struggled to test George Bristol.

The hosts then began to find their footing in the match, opening the scoring midway through the first half after a moment of magic from Farhan Subhani. The former Rochdale teenager intercepted the ball inside the Steeton half before his lofted pass found Price, who calmly rounded the onrushing Lovell before firing into an empty net.

Steeton continued to pile on the pressure, with Briggs, Toby Jeffrey and Josh McKiernon all seeing their efforts blocked by a resolute Campion defence in a first half where chances proved few and far between.

The game sparked into life after the break, with half-time substitute Aiden Kearsley forcing an outstanding save from Bristol. The young Steeton goalkeeper was also equal to efforts from Day and Aidan Kirby.

Campion came within a whisker of equalising with 15 minutes remaining but Tyler Marsh was able to intercept at the crucial moment to see the ball bounce off his leg, onto the post, and then out for a corner.

Steeton dominated possession, with McKiernon and Farhan Subhani outstanding in the midfield, and centre-back Ben Kendall continuing an impressive start to his career at the Chevrons against his former side.

Briggs had a shot excellently saved by Lovell before scoring the winner in the 84th minute. Farhan Subhani again was left with too much time and space to thread the ball to the prolific striker, who made no mistake with a low finish into the bottom corner.

The visitors were persistent in their search for a goal and were rewarded deep into injury time. Winning a free-kick on the edge of the box, Scott Eastwood sent a teasing delivery into the box, with substitute Keane colliding with Bristol but managing to power a header into the back of the net.

On Saturday, Roy Mason's men found themselves on the wrong side of a five-goal thriller as promotion-chasing AFC Blackpool fought back from two goals down to claim a 3-2 victory at Marley.

Andy Briggs tapped in his fifth goal of the season to open the scoring for the hosts inside ten minutes in a first half that lacked any real quality.

Bradford City teenager Jack Lynn headed in his first Chevrons goal to increase the advantage early in the second half.

But the division’s top scorers mounted a late comeback, with a sensational Adam Sumner free-kick halving the deficit before tricky winger John-Jo Morris netted a brace in a nine-minute spell that turned the game on its head.

Steeton almost found themselves a goal down within the first few minutes. Jacob Gregory found the ball on the edge of the area before working his way into a shooting position, but Toby Jeffrey found himself in the right place to block the shot on the line.

Injuries kept attackers Luke Baldwin, Kayle Price and Ben Wignall out of contention, but that didn’t stop the Chevrons from breaking the deadlock eight minutes into the match. Steeton worked the ball well, with Jeffrey delivering a teasing ball into the box for Andy Briggs, who calmly finished past Alex Cameron.

The visitors had chances to level the scores, but Tyler Marsh and debutant Ben Kendall were on hand to stop anything that came their way. Blackpool continued to push forward, with George Bristol pulling off stops to deny Kyle White, Billy McKenna and Gregory to send the hosts into the changing room at the break with a slender advantage.

Steeton almost added to their lead in the opening stages of the second half as Josh McKeirnon’s effort curled the wrong side of the bar following great build-up play from Jeffrey and the impressive Mo Farhan Subhani.

The visitors again had opportunities to level the scores as McKenna and Adam Sumner put their efforts wide of the target.

The Chevrons did eventually double their lead as Jeffrey got his second assist of the game, this time setting up teenager Jack Lynn, who was left unmarked in the box to head in.

The visitors eventually pulled a goal back in the 68th minute, with Sumner curling in a stunning free-kick from the edge of the area into the top corner and out of the reach of Bristol in the Steeton goal.

Within two minutes of the restart, the Mechanics were level, with Morris reacting quickest to a loose ball in the box to finish past Bristol.

Seven minutes later, the turnaround was complete as the ball reached Morris on the wing, who cut into the box before unleashing a powerful effort into the bottom corner.

Steeton had chances to grab a late equaliser, with substitutes Immanuel Kinuthia and Kian Dewhurst putting shots wide and Jeffrey forcing Cameron into a smart stop.

At the other end of the pitch, Gregory looked to add a fourth for the free-scoring visitors, but his shot cannoned off the crossbar.
