THACKLEY were the big winners this weekend as they romped to a 6-0 victory at Parkgate in the Northern Counties East League.

The Dennyboys rattled in three goals in each half on their way to a win that lifted them four places up the Premier Division table to 13th and ended a run of five games without a victory.

Joe Hughes broke the deadlock midway through the first half, with Jordan Hendrie and Julius Omosebi also on target.

Hughes made it a brace early in the second period, Mike Garrod added the fifth goal just after the hour mark and Alhassane Keita made it a round half dozen.

The win lifted Chris Reape's men above neighbours ALBION SPORTS as the Lions were tamed at mid-table rivals Penistone Church.

It was a chance for Kulwinder Sandhu's men to leapfrog promoted Penistone but the home side ran out 4-2 winners.

Penistone took an early lead as Kieran Ryan netted in the second minute. Albion levelled through Aaron Gaur before Jordan Coduri struck in the 39th minute.

The home side built on their lead with goals from Nathan Keightley and Andrew Ring before Danny Facey snatched a last-minute consolation.

LIVERSEDGE were also beaten 4-2, with promotion-chasing Pontefract Collieries their conquerors.

The second-placed visitors led 3-0 by the break after a Kane Reece double and Eli Hey's strike.

Joe Walton bagged himself a brace to make it 3-2 but the comeback was not to be as former Campion top-scorer Hey completed his hat-trick four minutes from time.

CAMPION were hoping to climb back into the Division One play-off places with a win at 17th-placed Dronfield Town but the home side strolled to a 3-1 victory.

Goals from Antony Holmes and Mark Fereday gave Town a 2-0 half-time lead. Joel Hughes pulled one back but the hosts side eased away again as Fereday doubled up.

ECCLESHILL UNITED continued their momentum as a 1-0 home win kept them third.

Hallam were the visitors and, aiming to leapfrog Campion into the top seven, were difficult opponents. But an Antony Brown penalty in the 75th minute separated the sides.

SILSDEN'S superb winning start in Division One of the Hallmark Security League was abruptly ended as they dropped their first points of the season.

They lost 1-0 at Holker Old Boys, who snatched all three points with a stoppage-time winner from Nathan Reid.

The Cobbydalers remain 13 points clear at the summit as all the top four clubs suffered defeats.
