Albion exit FA Cup

OSSETT ALBION were dumped out of the FA Cup in the first qualifying round 5-1 at the hands Bishop Auckland.

Ian Ward struck first for Auckland before Andrew Johnson doubled their lead on the stroke of half-time.

In the second period the Unicorns responded well  to a disappointing first half and halved their deficit through James Eyles in the 54th minute.

But Auckland found another gear in the final 30 minutes, scoring three goals without reply.

Ward completed his brace and that achievement was matched by Johnson nine minutes from time.

Chris Winn grabbed a goal in the final minute of the game to round off the win.

Albion return to First Division North action tomorrow (Sat, 3pm) when they host Colne.
