The Non-League Football Paper - - FA CUP SECOND ROUND QUALIFYING - By John Parkin­son

OSSETT were made to work hard for their vic­tory in the FA Cup as Steve Ri­d­ley’s bizarre goal helped them into the next round.

Ash­ley Jack­son’s ac­ro­batic kick was saved by Adam Reid on 12 min­utes as they pressed hard.

Ossett took the lead on 39 min­utes from Steve Ri­d­ley’s cor­ner. No­body got a touch on the ball and it just went straight in the net, bounced from him tak­ing it.

Dar­rhyl Ma­son had a chance to equalise on 66 min­utes, but his shot went wide.

The visi­tors pres­sure hard for an equaliser but they could not deny the hosts the slen­der vic­tory.

Colleries de­fended most set-pieces well but will feel dis­ap­pointed to have con­ceded di­rect from a cor­ner.
