A Ben Hinchliffe hat-trick was not enough to prevent the Swans losing 4-3 to Liversedge at the Clayborn.

‘Sedge went ahead after 20 seconds through Joe Kenny, who then added his second after 15 minutes. Hinchliffe scored twice before half time to make the scores level. An Alfie Raw penalty and a Craig Disley own goal put Liversedge out of sight before Hinchliffe sealed his hat-trick with a few minutes remaining.

The hosts won a throw in after just 10 seconds on the clock. Their long throw specialist launched the ball into the area, where it was flicked on to Kenny at the back post, who was unmarked and tapped in to give Liversedge the best of starts.

Ten minutes in Barton were pushing for an equalizer, when Reece Moody was brought down by the Liversedge goalkeeper. The Swans were convinced he was brought down in the area while the referee blew for a free kick on the edge of the area. Eddie Rogerson’s free kick flew over the bar.

15 minutes on the clock and Liversedge double their lead. A cross from Joe Walton finds Kenny, who headed past Cartwright to strengthen their hold on the game.

Barton then had two half chances through Peter Winn and Joe Busby before a superb through ball found Jamie Goddard in acres of space, he crossed into the area where Hinchliffe rose highest to head the ball in to half the deficit (21).

Hinchliffe heads our first goal in.

Six minutes later and the Swans drew level. Goddard again found in space on the wing, he played the ball into the area and Hinchliffe was on hand to tap the ball into an open goal to put Barton back in the game at the break.

Ten minutes after the break Walton restored Liversedge’s lead, that was until the referee disallowed the goal.

On 63 minutes the hosts won a penalty. Walton ran in on goal and was adjudged to have been fouled by Tarbotton, who was booked for the challenge. Alfie Raw stepped up and sent Cartwright the wrong way.

Two minutes later, Barton were again chasing the game as a ball played into the area deflected in off Swans captain Disley. An unfortunate own goal which meant Liversedge again had a two-goal lead.

Dave Ricardo introduced the Waudby brothers Tom and Will into the game to try and fight back again. They made an impact and brought energy to the side as Barton grabbed a third. The ball fell to Hinchliffe about ten yards out, and he slid the ball past the ‘keeper to make the score 4-3, was another fight back on?

In stoppage time the Swans went agonisingly close to levelling again. Will Waudby played the ball into the area where it found Disley. His effort cannoned off the post and was cleared for a corner. Waudby’s corner curled and hit the frame of the goal, getting stuck on the roof of the net.

Liversedge held on for the win, in a game which the Swans will feel unfortunate to not have picked up any points.
