Ossett Albion

Ossett Albion are going international Go International

Today's "Derby" match was watched by 2 supporters from Sweden who have an interest in Ossett Albion.
They even brought along their own national flag with "Ossett Albion" on it to lend their support.
Earlier in the day they had visited Albion's ground to purchase scarves, badges and other Albion souvenirs from the Club shop.
They also took time to look around the ground and to take some photographs.
Hopefully they enjoyed the special occasion of a local Ossett "Derby" which was full of the usual passion, particulary in the second half.
Supporter Peter Riley's interest in Ossett Albion started from an article in the "Team Talk" magazine in 1996 featuring the Club then managed by Jimmy Martin and including the late great John Balmer.

This follows on from last week when an Ossett Albion scarf was spotted at the third test match in New Zealand.
