Have your say

Goals from Andrew Hawksworth David Brown were in vain for the hosts against a Dominic Riordan strike and Bordman double.

Farsley Celtic enjoyed a 4-0 success at Spennymoor Town with second-half goals from Aaaron Hardy, Ross Daly, Lewis Nightingale and Paul Walker. Harrogate Railway’s hosting of Clitheroe was postponed, as was Goole AFC’s home clash with Lincoln United in First Division South.

In the Premier, Frickley Athletic were pegged back to a 1-1 draw at Whitby Town after leading through Jacob Hazel on 11 minutes.

Michael Roberts levelled from the penalty spot on the stroke of half-time.
