TADCASTER Albion and Pickering Town will able to return to Pitching In Northern Premier League action from this weekend.

A number of clubs had requested to begin playing again from Saturday after the decision to allow a 15 per cent capacity at grounds in Tier 3, which were previously been prevented from hosting fans.

The NPL have stated that they will allow league fixtures to be played from this weekend, provided that the two playing clubs are in agreement.

The league then hope to resume their full fixture schedule from Boxing Day onwards for all its clubs.

NPL north/west outfit Tadcaster, who find themselves in Tier 2, have no scheduled game this weekend so are set to return on December 26 with a trip to Brighouse Town.

Should Calderdale remain in Tier 3, only home fans will be allowed to enter, meaning that Taddy fans may have to wait until the visit of Pickering on New Year's Day.

Meanwhile, Pickering, who are also in Tier 2, are scheduled to travel to Dunston away on Saturday, but this fixture has not been confirmed to be going ahead by either club.

Prior to the Pikes' trip to Tadcaster, they are due to host Marske United on Boxing Day.
