Deep into the 2nd half of extra time the ball broke to James Ferguson who crashed home a unstoppable shot to win the tournament for Ossett Town Tornados !!!!!
A superb show from both sides today , neither side conceded a goal during the group stages which is thanks to fantastic defensive displays and some tremnedous goal keeping by Jack Fisher & in particular Stephen Hosty – Well done to all the players today , you did the club and yourselves proud !!!!
Must say well done to both teams who hadnt conceded a goal up until playing each other and the Tornados didnt concede during the whole tournament.
