Ossett Town U16s Lions progressed to the third round of the West Riding County Cup with a hard-earned 1-0 win against Huddersfield YMCA and made it consecutive clean sheets in the process.

Ossett started the brighter and were quickly in to their stride, Hammond and Watson leading the way.

After 20 minutes, Berry fed Evans whose pace and finish was electrifying as he put Lions ahead.

An unfortunate collision with his own ‘keeper saw Hewitt leave the field just before the break and Town were reduced to 10 men.

However, Ossett were dogged and courageous in the second half and closed out the game with great character.

Conyers, Ryan, Senior and Watson all impressed but Park House man of the match went to Lewis Clark.
