Brighouse Town continued preparations for their Evo Stik Division One North campaign with a 3-0 home win over NCEL new boys Campion yesterday.

Paul Quinn’s side took the lead after 12 minutes when good work from Luke Parkin paved the way for Jacob Buchanan to smash the ball into the top corner of the net.

It stayed 1-0 until the final quarter when Tom Robinson scored twice in nine minutes to settle the outcome.

His first was with a deflected shot from 25 yards and his second when he went through one-on-one with the ‘keeper and applied a finish.

Brighouse, who start their league campaign at home to Radcliffe Borough on Saturday, August 13, have different opponents for their next friendly.

Monday’s fixture with Albion Sports is off and Town will now play Yorkshire Amateur from Leeds at home on Tuesday (7.45).
