Interview with Pettinger

Yesterday Lee Morris confirmed the former professional goalkeeper Paul Pettinger would be joining his management team for next season. We caught up with Petts to talk about his appointment. Welcome to Worsbrough Bridge AFC. Firstly what was it that made you decide to come to the club and work with Lee? PP - I have known Lee for a good few years and he has spoken highly about the club. I feel I have loads to offer with my wealth of experience. I am sure I can benefit the goalkeepers as a former keeper myself, but also think that I have experience that can help the whole squad. What do you think you can bring to the job? PP - As I said I

Lee Morris Update

With planning for next season underway both on and off the pitch we caught up with the Briggers boss Lee Morris following yesterday's announcement that player-coach Joe Thornton was returning to Handsworth FC for an update.

FA Council Ratify Decision to Expunge 2019/20

The FA Council yesterday ratified the decision to expunge the 2019/20 season at steps 3 to 7. After the initial announcement no-one can be surprised that the decision was ratified. Like most clubs the financial impacts will be felt by our club. We also feel for the managers, coaches, players, supporters, sponsors and volunteers who gave time, effort and money to the club and will feel disappointed, frustrated, angry at the decision. We have to move on. For some clubs they will feel the need to look at taking other steps and each club are entitled to deal with this however they feel is right. For Worsbrough Bridge AFC our efforts will be focused on the future and that means working even harder

Quick Club Update

On behalf of everyone at Worsbrough Bridge I want to start the update by asking all our followers and supporters to continue to stay safe and well.

We are working with the various leagues and the County FA, as well as with funding bodies, local councillors and our Member of Parliament to make sure that our club remains at the heart of the Worsbrough Community. As a club with the current financial uncertainty we feel
