Albion face holders city in County Cup

IN-FORM Ossett Albion face their toughest game of the season on Sunday when they take on holders Bradford City in a West Riding FA Women’s County Cup second round tie.

Last time out Albion completed a 3-0 win over Cleethorpes Town in their North East Regional League Southern Division game, with goals from Sophie Jones (two) and Rachel Barber, but FA Women’s Premier League side Bradford City promise a sterner test.

Battyeford Belles, from the West Riding League Premier Division are at home to North East Regional League leaders Farsley Celtic, Lower Hopton are at home to Ripon City and Ossett Town are at Ilkley.

Ossett Town’s 3-2 defeat by Battyeford Belles left the two sides level on three points at the bottom of the West Riding League Premier Division, while in Division Two Dewsbury Rangers kept in touch with the top two with a 3-2 win at Crossley and Ossett Town Reserves remain bottom after going down 5-3 at Amaranth.

On Sunday Dewsbury Rangers take on struggling Silsden Development, while there is another tough encounter for Ossett Town Reserves as they take on leaders Leeds City.
