The postponement of Guiseley’s fixture at Stalybridge Celtic in Blue Square Bet North was the second piece of bad news that came out of the club late last week.

The Lions confirmed on Friday that Wayne Brooksby had broken his ankle in the final training session before Saturday’s game. He will miss the rest of the season and the club wish him well in his recovery.

Stalybridge had scheduled a 10am pitch inspection and news of the call-off was issued shortly after. The match has already been rearranged for Tuesday, April 9.

The Lions are next scheduled to be in action on Tuesday for the rearranged home match against Lee Sinnott’s Altrincham but that match must also be in doubt due to the weather.

Altrincham featured in one of only two Blue Square Bet North games to be played at the weekend and a 2-0 home victory over Worcester City took them up into the play-off places.

Farsley’s trip to New Mills in Evo-Stik League Division One North was off as the Derbyshire club’s ground was under deep snow.

The Evo-Stik League was hit particularly badly, with just one game from all three divisions escaping.

The postponement cost Neil Parsley’s men the chance of swift revenge after they felt they were unfortunate in the 2-1 home defeat against New Mills the previous Saturday.

Brighouse Town lost the Baris Northern Counties East League Premier Division leadership when their fixture at Maltby Main was called off.

Scarborough Athletic’s 2-0 home win over Tadcaster Albion was the only match to be played in either of the competition’s two tiers.

The three points lifted the Seadogs to the summit, above Town by two points with both sides having played the same number of games.

Thackley and Liversedge were denied home games against Bridlington Town, who are third, and Pickering Town respectively in the same section.

Division One title-chasers Albion Sports were thwarted in their attempts to play Teversal at Horsfall Stadium, while Eccleshill United were prevented from making a wasted journey to Hemsworth MW thanks to an early phone call.

Both local clubs are due to play on Tuesday – Albion at Askern Villa and the Eagles at Rossington Main – but the snow could again have the final say.

The League have announced that the season will be extended one week into the first Saturday of May to ease the fixture pressure on their clubs.

Silsden’s home meeting with Runcorn Linnets was another casualty as the North West Counties League Premier Division had just one surviving match.
