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’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

Worsbrough 3-0 Retford

As usual Gav spoke to Fudge after tonight's victory against Retford. Last night was up there with our best performances this season for sure, if not our best. After the draw at Nostell on Friday, which we left feeling a little disappointed not to win, although Nostell had the best two chances early on, we felt we created several chances to win that game, last night was even more important to win to achieve our own personal objectives. Retford are sitting sixth on the edge of the play offs and have a great season, so we knew we were in for a tough game. There was extra spice added to the game, from the first game, which the lads hadn’t forgot

Worsbrough 4-2 Teversal

Our reporter/masterchef Gav caught up with Fudge after the match After the midweek win away at Clipstone, it was important that we backed it up with another 3 points. On paper we should of been expected to win this game, against a team that were bottom of the league, but we all know in football league position can sometimes go out of the window. The club continues to do amazing things against the weather to ensure games go ahead, however at the moment the pitch is still very difficult and makes it a leveller. Something we haven’t adapted to all that well over the last few months, but it's all about learning. We started the game on the front foot but
