Rivals Ossett Town and Ossett Albion have agreed outline terms on a merger of the two clubs, subject to FA and league approval.

A joint statement released by both Evo-Stik North clubs said: “Discussions are at an advanced stage.

“This course of action does not affect either club’s junior programmes, which will remain the same.

“We have had great support from the town as a whole so far and we will update everyone as soon as there are any further developments.

“At this time we would like to thank everyone behind the scenes at both clubs for their co-operation and input at this exciting time.”
