BOTH Tadcaster Albion and Pickering Town saw their weekend encounters beaten by the weather.

The Brewers' scheduled Evo-Stik first division north meeting with Prescot Cables was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.

After Merseyside was hit by a barrage of overnight rain, the playing surface at Volair Park was deemed unfit at 10.45am on Saturday morning.

Taddy's next match will be their first of 2018 as Brighouse Town visit the i2i Stadium tomorrow (3pm).

Paul Marshall's Pikes, meanwhile, were due to meet Liversedge for the second time in a week, aiming to improve on their 2-2 draw at Mill Lane on December 23.

However, a waterlogged pitch at Sedge's Clayborn ground saw the Northern Counties East League premier division clash postponed following a pitch inspection on Saturday morning.

Pickering return to action, weather permitting, next Saturday when they host Maltby Main.

Selby Town's division one game against Knaresborough Town was also called off.

Some weekend action did go ahead for our local sides, with Scarborough Athletic moving up to third place in Evo-Stik first division north thanks to a 4-1 victory over Clitheroe.

After Max Wright had given the home side an early lead, the Seadogs' advantage didn't last long – the Blues levelling through Brad Carroll's close range header.

Boro netted a second when James Walshaw turned his marker and fired the ball home.

After a rally from the visitors at the start of the second half, the game was sewn up with two quickfire goals.

First, the ball broke to Michael Coulson to power past the Clitheroe keeper before Dave Merris netted with a thunderbolt to end the year in style.

In National League North, Harrogate Town host Darlington tomorrow afternoon at the CNG Stadium (3pm).
