Pontefract Collieries and Glasshoughton Welfare will both be hoping to get back into action this Saturday after having their games postponed because of the wet weather last weekend.

Premier Division Colls also saw their game at Thackley called off on Tuesday.

They are on their travels this Saturday when away to Maltby Main in another league game (kick-off 3pm).

Ponte go into their last match of 2015 in 16th place, two places below Maltby but level on points with them.

The home game with Parkgate that was postponed last Saturday will now be played on Wednesday, January 20.

Colls, meanwhile, have been busy in the transfer market after signing Steve Palfrey from Glasshoughton and Brad Kerr from Retford United.

Glasshoughton had their Division One match at Hallam called off last Saturday and it will now be played on Tuesday, January 26.

This Saturday Welfare are due to play at home to Dronfield Town (kick-off 3pm). They remain down in 16th with their visitors four places above.

Glasshoughton also have a Boxing Day derby when they are at home to current leaders Hemsworth MW.

New managers Simon Houghton and Craig Wilkinson have added Spencer Clarke to their squad from Pontefract Collieries, but Palfrey has gone the other way and they have lost Luke Norbury to Armthorpe Welfare.

Assistant manager Roley Lanes has left the club to join Worsbrough Bridge Athletic as their assistant boss and the Welfare committee would like to thank him for his efforts with Welfare this season.

Glasshoughton are aiming to raise funds for a new kit and football equipment by holding a raffle to win main sponsorship on the first team shirt plus three other prizes – match day sponsor worth £250, advertising board for a year worth £200 and match ball sponsor worth £50 and they keep the signed ball from the game. Tickets are £10, with £1 going to the Prince of Wales Hospice, and available from Garry Willis on 07873547633.
