Staithes face a tricky trip to Readers Scarborough Beckett League Premier Division title rivals Forge Valley on Saturday.

Leaders Staxton make the trip to face Scalby, while strugglers Cloughton entertain Cayton and fellow relegation battlers Settrington make the trip to Seamer.

Division One pacesetters Mulgrave travel to Wykeham, with the runaway Division Two leaders Scalby 2nds hoping to close in on promotion with a win at Ebberston 2nds.

Seamer 2nds will be looking to retain their spot in pole position in Division Three with a win at basement club Cayton 3rds, aware that Pickering 3rds, who entertain Flixton 3rds, are lying only two points behind them.

New Division Four leaders Heslerton 2nds will look to strengthen their position with a home win in their derby clash with Sherburn 2nds, while second-placed Cloughton 2nds make the long trip north to fourth-placed Mulgrave 2nds, who will still fancy their chances of promotion as they lie only 20 points behind Liam Salt's side.
