Jonathan Rimmington’s men will be back in action as early as Friday, July 8 when they make the short travel to play Emley AFC at their Fantastic Media Welfare Ground.

Kick-off is 7.45pm and will see Sedge go up against a progressive club who enjoyed their own decent season in 2021-22 after they were promoted into the top flight of the NCE League for the first time.

They finished in a healthy ninth position after getting off to a difficult start and will be looking to push on in the next campaign. They play some decent football and will provide the ideal first test for the Liversedge players after their return to training following their current deserved break.
