Club in the Spotlight – Worsbrough Bridge AFC

Back to News

Posted 3rd April 2017

Ahead of their Family Day this Saturday, our next Club in the Spotlight is Worsbrough Bridge Athletic FC.

As the club’s Under-10 side and first team prepare to take on Teversal FC as part of the day, a bouncy castle, raffle and food and drink will be available to keep the whole family entertained.

With only three games remaining in the NCEL Division One season, the club are looking to secure their stay in the league for what would be a 27th consecutive year.

The club have several volunteering opportunities available as they look ahead to next season, all of which can been seen on their club directory page.

We spoke to the Club Development Officer, Aron Harvey, to get an insight into the Barnsley-based club.

What is the best thing about your club?

The best thing about our club is the team spirit we all have. We are much more than a football club. Our club has a community spirit. We welcome everyone to our club. Most people who get involved with our club are from the local community.

Do you have any upcoming activities or events?

We are planning an open day at Park Road where we are going to open our home ground up to our local community and offer stalls, bouncy castles and much more.

How do new members get involved?

Members mostly get involved at the start of the football season, but they are welcome to join at any point throughout the season by emailing us and coming down to our home ground on a match day. The email is developmentwbafc@gmail.com

If there is one thing that you hope your members take from being a part of your club, what would it be?

As the development officer, I hope they take their experience from volunteering or playing for the club in to their everyday life.

Why is your club important to you?

This club means a lot to me. I moved to Worsbrough Bridge Athletic FC last year to take on a new challenge and if it wasn’t for this club I would have quit and left football. Last year when I applied to take on the role as Development Officer it was a privilege as it meant I could help change someone else’s experiences and be a positive influence on their life.
