Ossett United say they are facing the prospect of having to sell their ground to survive, after a £135,000 court order against the club.

The club have released a statement in which they explain that last Tuesday (12th November 2019), a court found in favour of a Radcliffe player who suffered a broken ankle playing against Ossett Town (Ossett United are the 2018 merger of Ossett Albion and Ossett Town). Ossett say the ‘league-recommended insurance policy’ did not protect them from damages or legal fees for the claimant should this case be lost, leaving them with a £135,000 court order.

Ossett play in the North West Division of the BetVictor Northern Premier League, of which they currently sit second-bottom, and have Ossett Town’s former Ingfield ground as their home venue. The club say ‘the decision to sell the only asset, the ground, is now looking like the only option.’
