TADCASTER ALBION have taken three points from their two league matches in the Northern Premier League north/west division.

New Albion manager Curtis Woodhouse - the former Sheffield United midfield and professional boxer - led Tadcaster to a 2-1 victory over Trafford on the opening day of the new season.

He tasted defeat for the first time a few days later, suffering a 1-0 loss at Pontefract Collieries.

First up for Tadcaster was a home tie against Trafford, a match in which they fell behind after 14 minutes when Jordan Johnson fired in a free-kick to the top right corner.

Just nine minutes later though, Tadcaster brought themselves level as Jack Day nodded home a Jack Walters cross.

The match ended in dramatic circumstances as new signing Jonathan Margetts came off the bench and unleashed a 40-yard strike which sailed into the back of the net.

On Tuesday night, Albion fell to a 1-0 to Pontefract Collieries - Scott Brown was the sole scorer of the evening, heading home from close range.

Next up for Tadcaster is a trip to neighbours Frickley Athletic in the preliminary round of the FA Cup.

Elsewhere, Selby Town maintained their unbeaten start in the NCEL division one by recording their biggest win of the season - a 5-1 thrashing of Harrogate RA.

Selby return to the Fairfax Plant Hire Stadium to face Brigg Town on Saturday.

Meanwhile, Pickering Town will be seeking their first win of the new campaign when they host Bridlington Town in the FA preliminary round.

It's a tie that “is worth almost £3,000 to the winner,” according to the Pickering website.

The Pikes fell to a 4-1 defeat in their trip to Workington on the opening day and suffered a 2-1 loss when playing hosts to Ramsbottom United, beaten 2-1.
