Toolstation NCEL New Season Message

As we approach the start of another NCEL season, one which will start with all teams feeling optimistic about what is ahead, it will be a long and challenging season with many ups and downs along the way but we are looking forward to the battle ahead, it promises to even more competitive than the last! As we look to a new season we are pleased with our recruitment and look forward to the new and retained players excelling in the red Briggers shirt, they certainly have the talent and during pre-season have worked incredibly hard during the hot weather (and more recently in the wet weather) and all have fitted in well and done what has been asked of them.

Chairman Reflects on our 100th Year

As the dust settles on a year of celebrating 100 years of football in Worsbrough we want to take a few minutes to thank everyone that has made it happen. A massive thanks to all those people that over the last 100 years have dedicated their time as volunteers, managers & players - we are only celebrating this milestone because of their hardwork.

I want to thank former Barnsley Mayor Sarah Tattersall for her support right from our visit to Germany last summer through to last night and also thank the Barnsley Twinning Society for making it happen.

Volunteers Welcome!

As the club continues to go from strength to strength, with more teams playing under the Worsbrough Bridge banner, so we need some more people to help us out, here's a list of some of the benefits of volunteering for a local community cause ...

Chairman’s End of Season Review

We have reached the end of another NCEL league season, our 40th consecutive year since joining as founder members in 1982.  I want to start by saying a big thank you to every single supporter that has encouraged the players during this season, the game is nothing without fans and we should never forget that, and it has been good to see our average attendance again finishing well over 100 again.  Secondly, our fantastic sponsors who contribute so much. We have been fortunate to have great support from AA Construction Support Solutions, both with our 1st team and U16’s as kit sponsors, but Tony McDonald has offered so much more, and we are massively grateful. I also want to thank the Monotones Band who sponsored our

Chairman’s Christmas Message

We have reached that time of year when on behalf of Worsbrough Bridge AFC I want to wish all supporters, sponsors, players and management teams across the club a happy and healthy festive period. I know how hard every single person associated with the club works, it is not always easy, but we are brought together by the love of this fantastic club. 100 years ago we were formed and it is a huge privilege to be the current custodian of the club. To celebrate this milestone in Germany this summer and hold our Centenary event at the club before our recent game against Parkgate have been real highlights, especially to meet and see so many former players, managers and
