It has been a busy few days since our game away at Retford FC and I would like to welcome Mike Jepps and Owen Fieldsend to the club. Mike has been playing in the Senior Nottinghamshire Premier League for Bingham Town FC and has an impressive goalscoring record. Whatever the level, if someone knows how to put the ball in the back of the net you have to take notice, and his stats for the last few seasons shows he know how to hit the net. Although he has never played at this level, Mike is experienced and an all round athlete and someone we looking forward to seeing in the red shirt soon. Owen is another experienced player who has had

What a year 2020 has been, I am sure we will all be glad to see the back of it and hope for a better 2021. Covid-19 has created havoc for clubs up and down the country, and you have to feel for the managers, players, club and league officials that work tirelessly to keep things going - it has been a tough time. From the point of view of Worsbrough Bridge AFC we enter Christmas with many positives and a future we can look forward to. Financially, despite the pandemic we are in a good place and the structure of the club is starting to reap benefits with our U19's and U18's both top of their respective leagues. Our 1st team

We sat down with Luke straight after the match against Dronfield I've got to be careful what I say but I thought the officials was poor but we were also poor all over the pitch, we got what we deserved and they were the better team we weren't at the races. We had spoken about playing to the levels we had against Emley but it looked like a whole different team tonight I'm dissappointed. The first 10 minutes we were really slow did you expect that?No not really, we discussed in the changing room about not being complacent and we mentioned that Dronfield's results were probably a little false. They have played the top teams and they will make it
it was another disapointing game on Sunday as the ladies lost 4-0 to visitors SJR Worksop Womens Development. The scoreline does not reflect the ladies performance as they improved massively on last weeks loss, being the better and more dominate side for the majority of the match. However, Worksop took there chances in front of goal and took all 3 points in the Briggers second loss of the season. We look forward to next Sunday's fixture against Sheffield Wednesday as we continue to search for 3 points

There was a lovely ball along the box which was cleared, unfortunately it didn't land to a Worsbrough player all the Worsbrough lads were really dominate chasing down the Emley players and being first to every ball. Special mention to Ben Donoghue who worked very
