TADCASTER Albion are celebrating tonight after clinching promotion to the Evo-Stik League Division One North.

They clinched the Northern Counties East League Premier Division title thanks to a 2-1 win at home to Armthorpe Welfare.

Josh Greening headed in a Jonathan Greening corner to give the Brewers a half-time lead and Adam Baker made it 2-0 on 57 minutes.

Armthorpe pulled a goal back but Taddy held on to be crowned champions and spark mass celebrations.

Albion will now look to do the double, with the league cup semi-final at home to Albion Sports next Tuesday.

Before that they will sign off their league season on Saturday at home to Athersley Recreation when there is sure to be a party atmosphere.

Tacaster pipped long-term rivals Handsworth Parramore to the title in a final week of twists and turns. They defeated Garforth 1-0 at home and away on Saturday and Tuesday, with Tom Corner scoring both goals.

Handsworth meanwhile lost 4-1 at relegation-threatened Brigg Town on Saturday while their midweek game at Pontefract was postponed due to a power cable theft allowing Tadcaster to open up a four-point gap at the top of table and putting them in the driving seat ahead of tonight.

Tadcaster boss Billy Miller said: "We wanted to wrap it up as quickly as possible and wanted to do it in front of our own loyal fans, who have been behind us every step of the way."

Pickering Town are set to finish their season in sixth place, a remarkable achievement considering they were languishing at the bottom of the table in the first eight weeks of the season. The upturn coinciding with the arrival of manager Paul Marshall.

Pickering sign off a transformational season with a home contest against Maltby Main, the team just below them in seventh, before completing their programme on Tuesday night with a re-arranged league match at home to 10th placed Rainworth Miners Welfare. A goal by Ged Ashton gave Pickering a midweek win at Staveley Miners Welfare.

Selby Town signed off their season in Northern Counties East League Division One with a 3-1 defeat at Hallam. But a 10th place finish is still impressive after a poor start and a mid-season change of manager.
