Ossett Town U14s Jaguars battled back in the second half but is wasn’t enough to avoid a 2-1 loss to Meltham.

After going a goal down to a early penalty, Jaguars scrapped for everything with Wright and Wilkinson battling away in midfield and Boden and Wardman controlling the back line.

Another sloppy goal made it 2-0 at half time but in true Ossett spirit, Jaguars bit back with Steadman showing flair down the right and Fletcher and Brickwood creating problems up front.

Town were rewarded in the last moments when a swinging corner from Bean was netted by Wright.

Boden and Wright shared the Elite Survey man of the match award in a fine display from Town.
