News of cup kings Ossett Albion’s sterling exploits have reached far and wide – across to the other side of the globe to New Zealand in fact.

The Dimple Wells outfit’s FA Cup date with destiny finally arrives tomorrow in the fourth qualifying round at Blue Square Bet Conference North side Bradford Park Avenue and Albion can write a fair few more headlines if they see off John Deacey’s troops and book their place in the hat for the first round draw for the first time in their history.

The draw takes place on Sunday lunchtime with the Evo-Stik First Division North strugglers desperate for their cup adventure to continue, with their run capturing the imagination of a growing number of fans, particularly since their giant-killing win over another Conference North side in Hinckley United in a replay in the last round, courtesy of Kurtis Noble’s exquisite volley.
