Mossley rounded off an impressive season with a 2-0 win at Ossett Albion with a ninth 'League double' of the campaign at Dimple Wells on Saturday.

On an uneven surface this was never going to be a classic but both sides were keen on recording a win to end the season in style.

As it was, Mossley dominated the first half and fully deserved the lead when it finally came in the 29th minute.

Tom Pratt, who was providing a real threat on the right, raced on to a through ball and rounded keeper Bennett before stroking the ball goalwards, a dramatic goal-line clearance followed but Sam Robinson took on the loose ball sidestepping a covering defender before firing home from eight yards.

The second half saw Ossett attempt to press higher up the pitch and the home side had a couple of pot shots, one of which, a powerful Adam Muller drive, was well saved by Liam Flynn.

Danny McDonnell came to Mossley's rescue midway through the half when he headed the ball off the line following an Ossett set piece.

Mossley looked like they had shot themselves in the foot when with just a few minutes remaining McDonnell fouled Muller, as a wind assisted punt had gone beyond the back line, The home side awarded a penalty. However, Flynn again came to Mossley's rescue with a fine penalty save, diving to his left to turn away Connor Bower's reasonably well struck spot kick.

Flynn's save proved the turning point as Mossley doubled their lead in the last minute. Substitute Mike Fish cut inside from the right past two Ossett defenders, before squaring the ball to Charlie Anderson who hit a crisp shot beyond Bennett's dive from just outside the box to seal the victory.

The season ended with a humorous moment as Mossley's bench then tried to bring on second keeper Andy Farrimond as an outfield substitute, but, unfortunately the move backfired when the referee blew for time before the substitution could be made.

There endeth another season and a hugely enjoyable one at that! Bring on 2015/16.
