CAMPION defeated visitors Brighouse Town 5-2 in their Flexible Football West Riding County FA Under-21 Floodlit League derby at Manningham Mills.

Neither side had played much over the previous two months, but it was the hosts who came out of the traps the quickest, with Daniel Oldcorn putting them ahead with a 25-yard strike.

Jahro Parchment, Matthias Britton and Mohammed Wasim then made it 4-0 for the high-pressing home side, but Brighouse did better in the second half after changing their system, pegging two goals back via a Jack Normanton free-kick and a Finn Donovan effort.

However, Campion then had Tariq Hassan sent off, making for a nervier finish than it should have been, but Britton put the game to bed with a fifth goal late on.

Warren Hildred was Town's man of the match.

Silsden lost 4-1 at leaders Harrogate Town, but took the lead after 20 minutes when the impressive Jack Wrigglesworth prodded the ball home from 12 yards.

But the visitors were unable to make the most of their superiority, especially after losing Wrigglesworth to injury on the half-hour, and Marcus Day equalised ten minutes before half-time.

The hosts almost went 2-1 ahead in the 44th minute, only for Sammy Lee to pull off a point-blank save, but Silsden's performance dropped in the second half, and Day completed his hat-trick within ten minutes of the restart.

Luke Baldwin, Aaron Davis and Owen Williamson continued to probe for the Cobbydalers, but they were finished off by a fifth Harrogate goal near the end.

In the Northern Under-19 Alliance League, basement boys Bradford Park Avenue lost 6-3 at Shelley, the visitors' goals coming from Jordan Botwood (2) and Brad Oliver.

Avenue manager Alex Meechan said: "Defensive errors cost us but we applied ourselves pretty well.

"It could have been a little different with a couple of key moments, including our missed chances, but it was a step in the right direction after our last match, when we lost 10-1 against AFC Emley."
