Unstoppable Campion are through to the semi-finals for the first ever time after knocking out higher league Brighouse Town in a shock 4-2 victory.

The runaway NCEL Division One leaders’ incredible campaign just keeps better and better.

The Bradford-based side raced into a 2-0 first half lead through prolific goal-scorer Dan Illingworth and striker Aidan Kirby.

Brighouse, who also had a penalty saved by Campion goalkeeper Brad Emmerson, pulled level with 18 minutes to go thanks to Myron Gibbons and Aidan Walker.

However, despite the fight-back, Campion were not to be denied as Mark Ferguson scored two quick-fire goals in the last ten minutes to win it.

Barnoldswick Town are also through as they came from behind to beat Golcar United 3-1. 

Daniel Naidole got Campion’s goal.
