Billy Law grabbed an equaliser for Hemsworth MW as they drew 1-1 with Evo-Stik League side Ossett Albion in a pre-season friendly.

In an entertaining game, Dom Blair and Richard Collier both went close for Wells before they fell behind to a Ross Hardaker goal.

Law missed a great chance for Hemsworth, but made amends in the 74th minute when racing through to make it 1-1.

New goalkeeper Danny Rusling took the chance to impress for Wells as he made a superb save to deny Ossett’s James Hurtley.

Hemsworth lost 3-1 when they hosted a Barnsley FC under 23s team in midweek.

The professional team’s fitness proved the key and they fielded two complete sides in what proved a valuable workout for both clubs.

Hemsworth continue their preparations with a home game against Evo-Stik League team Ossett Town this Saturday, with the Steve Kelly Memorial Trophy up for grabs.

Hemsworth MW’s development team lost 6-2 to Nostell MW.

The draw for the first qualifying round of the FA Vase has been made with Hemsworth MW away to St Helens Town on September 9.
