Farsley were 3-0 down at the break with Jamie Henders’ 10th-minute opener followed by an Aaron Bowen brace.

Adam Priestley hit back for Farsley with 12 minutes left but the damage had already been done. Garforth Town experienced a similarly miserable afternoon in losing 4-1 to visiting Prescot Cables. The visitors were 4-0 up by the time Fernando Moke opened the home scoring on 87 minutes.

Harrogate Railway fared even worse as they were pummelled 6-1 at home to Burscough.

Rail’ had shipped in half a dozen by the time Liam Hardy hit home with 19 minutes left.

Wakefield also lost at home as Ramsbottom United left with a 2-1 success despite trailing to an early Micah Bleau opener.

After Mark Ayres had equalised, Bleau then conceded a decisive 66th-minute own goal.

Ossett Town, however, salvaged a 1-1 draw at home to Clitheroe who led through Alex Johnson but were pegged back through Simon Baldry with eight minutes left.

Elsewhere, Goole AFC were bashed 7-2 at Warrington Town despite away goals from Calum Russell and Bill Law. In the Premier, Frickley Athletic led after eight minutes at Chorley but were ultimately undone 5-1. Gavin Allot’s strike gave the visitors false hope.

Whitby Town lost 4-2 at Witton Albion despite strikes from Shane Henry and Craig James but efforts from Russell Fry and Ryan Kendall gave North Ferriby United a 2-0 success at Stafford Rangers.
