Worsbrough Bridge suffer the impact of Covid19 (and how you can help!)

On the 26th of March 2020 the Football Association concluded that the football season below the levels of step 2 would be declared ‘null and void’. Although the decision was made with the health of the nation at its heart there is no getting away from the financial issues this causes for clubs in our local area.

Therefore we would like to bring to your attention the JustGiving page that has been set up by Worsbrough Bridge AFC. The Briggers reached a cup semi-final with their help of their management team and with their chairman Mark Booth they have made great progress in building their team this season, however off the field they have had rotten luck. The cup semi final was due to be a home tie against the oldest club in the World Sheffield FC and there is no doubt that this would have created a huge gate for Worsbrough with many fans in attendance. The storms and bad weather over the winter period meant that Worsbrough had to deal with two different floods this season and now the COVID19 outbreak has meant that they are losing out on over £5000 worth of revenue due to the premature end of the football season.

The club are seeking donations from the football world after this huge loss of revenue; donations are spent on the following objectives:

  • Pitch repairs (After suffering two floods in one season.)

  • Ground repairs to ensure the safety of visitors.

  • Bills from the FA, Insurance and rental payments.

The 97 year old club have tremendous community history on their side and support several junior and ladies teams, therefore it is vitally important that this club lives to see its 100th Birthday. If you would like to help this fantastic club then head over to the following link and donate whatever you can for a worthwhile cause.

The club have raised 25% of their £2000 target and with the support of the non-league community in Sheffield it would be great to get closer to the target. The club has fought against so many issues this season and it is important that they fight this hurdle as I’m sure bright days are ahead for the Briggers. Worsbrough Bridge Social Media
