I know how hard the manager, coaches and players worked in the summer and it has been a pleasure to be around them, watch them and support them. As we go into the Christmas period, they deserve to be in the position they are, and I am sure that anyone that has watched them will have enjoyed the performances of this young group of

Player Interview – Harley Holt

Our roving reporter Gav Frost caught up with recent birthday boy Harley Holt, fresh from his goal at Rossington Main on Saturday. GF - You have made the step up to Senior Football in the last year or so, what in your opinion is the biggest difference between Academy Football and men's football at NCEL level? HH - The biggest difference is that Academy Football is not focussed on results, it much more focused on development until you reach a certain age, but perhaps the biggest difference is you have a lot more time on the ball in Academy Football. NCEL football is more physical and physically demanding. In the Academy they focus on playing one way which would be whatever the

This is your first season in the Northern Counties East League,how have you found the step up? MJ. Yes, I’ve really enjoyed it.

I dropped Luke a message to see if I could come down to Worsbrough Bridge AFC and that was that. GF. With Luke's
