Ossett Town boss Craig Elliott has resigned from his post to join Northern Counties East League Division One outfit Shaw Lane Aquaforce.

The club issued a short statement on their website last night, Monday, confirming the departure of Elliott who took charge at Ingfield in the summer of 2012.

Town are currently eighth in the Evo-Stik First Division North, still in the hunt for a play-off spot, and Elliott guided the Reds to a respectable 12th place finish in his first season in charge.

A senior player is set to take temporary charge for tonight’s home league clash with New Mills.
