Club Statement – 30/12/2020

I am sure that by now you will be aware that today our NCEL season was suspended and will be reviewed again on the 13 January 2021. We, along with many other clubs are frustrated by a further suspension but we understand the leagues decision. They are damned if they do and damned if they don't and we just have to appreciate how difficult it is for everyone connected with Grassroots football at this present time. At a high level we want to make sure everyone is aware that our club will survive this, however we wouldn’t have done so if it had not been for everyone’s support, our sponsors and the fantastic efforts of our fans. We appreciate the efforts

Worsbrough bridge Ladies 3-0 Wickersley

+3 points! Today saw us get our first win, and first 3 points after a difficult start to the season. From the outset, we were determined to get the win, especially given last night’s announcement. We hosted an evenly matched Wickersely side who already had 1 point on the board coming into the game. We played excellently throughout, working hard for each other and fulfilling our individual roles well. The first half saw us take charge of the game, and despite missing a few chances, we finished 1-0 up through Lucy Tindle, with some work to do to secure the win. We started the second half the same as we finished the first, having lots of possession and putting pressure on our opponents. The

Fudge's squad continues to take shape as the Briggers signed another impressive youngster today, Ex-Hemsworth MWFC, Owen Wildblood.

However he is looking to nail a position down after a few years of non league experience, he is searching for regular game time. Owen has the potential to play at very good level, he has the skill set to do this, technically very good and a nasty streak, he knows a lot of the group already and fits well within our changing room. Having worked with him at Barnsley College, we have a
