Local junior football team Ossett Town Titans u12s recently took part in a football tour in Holland over the Easter break.
The players and their supporting family members left bright and early on Good Friday morning and returned home on Tuesday 3rd April. Ossett Town played teams from across Europe including Holland, Poland and Denmark.
Over the course of the weekend, Ossett played 6 games and won 2 of them, despite playing teams from the year above which had several 14-year old players in their outfit. It was also the first time the under 12 side had played 11-a-side on a full-size pitch so huge credit goes out to the whole team for their effort and performances.
Now that the team are back in England, their focus has turned to the domestic league where they impressively sit at the top of Division 1 in the Huddersfield Macron Junior Football League with a few games to play.
Northern Media is proud to support the team and, over the last 12 months, have sponsored the away kit and sports bags, as well as helped with a number of fundraising events.
Anthony Noble, Ossett Town Titans U12 coach, comments:
“Holland was a really good experience for the boys and it is something they will remember for a while. They were outside of their comfort zone at times as they were playing older boys on a bigger pitch and had a fair bit of travelling to do so there will have been some tiredness, but I was extremely proud of the way they adapted to the games and represented Ossett Town during the tour.
We are now looking to finish the season on a high by hopefully winning the Division 1 title which will be a fantastic achievement for this group of players.
Northern Media have been fantastic with their support of the team over the last few years and the team look forward to being associated with them over the coming seasons.”
