I am sure that by now you will be aware that today our NCEL season was suspended and will be reviewed again on the 13 January 2021. We, along with many other clubs are frustrated by a further suspension but we understand the leagues decision. They are damned if they do and damned if they don't and we just have to appreciate how difficult it is for everyone connected with Grassroots football at this present time. At a high level we want to make sure everyone is aware that our club will survive this, however we wouldn’t have done so if it had not been for everyone’s support, our sponsors and the fantastic efforts of our fans. We appreciate the efforts

It has been confirmed today that our Worsbrough Bridge AFC U13's have been named League Champions after the the SDJSL calculated the leagues under the Points Per Game System following the cancellation of the season due to Covid-19.

Message from the Chairman
Sadly due to the outbreak of Cornonavirus we are left in the position where we have to respect the advice and guidance of the government and football authorities and confirm that all footballing activities for every adult and junior team associated with Worsbrough Bridge AFC are suspended with immediate effect and until further notice. I fully appreciate that for many this is frustrating after an already difficult season with heavy rain and flooding but this is an unprecedented situation and one in which we need to try to protect the health and wellbeing of all managers, coaches, players, supporters and volunteers.

Community Day – Pay What You Want ! – Saturday 1 February 2020
Worsbrough Bridge AFC v Hallam FC - Pay What You Want !
