Hirst’s brace helps guide Worsbrough to huge win

Up a couple of places in Toolstation NCEL Division One yesterday for Worsbrough Bridge Athletic after a fine 4-1 win over Andy Dawson’s Parkgate. The Steelmen drop to ninth after their excellent recent run came to an end – and Briggers Manager, Lee Morris felt that his players were fully deserving of the win.

Not for the first time, Worsborough’s Keiran Hirst was on the mark against his former club with the opener after 19 minutes, and although the visitors levelled from the spot through Bruno Holden just after the half-hour, Kyle Wordsworth restored the home side’s advantage right on half-time. The Park Road crowd saw that man Hirst (66 minutes) and Jack Waldron (72 minutes) complete the win.

Lee reminded TBG Editor, Craig Kendall that he had warned his players that they would have to be somewhere near their best to get a positive result. “I knew we would have to be right on it today. I have to give all the credit to my players who executed the game plan excellently. We changed systems – which is never easy – but I thought we were at it from start to finish, showed what we can do and back up to fifth is fantastic.”
Lee was pleased with the Briggers change of shape. “The new system suited us,” he agreed.

“We had a fantastic training session, put on by Dave Taylor in midweek, which put us in good stead for today’s result. We have now only lost 2 in 14, I think, so we are on a very good run and with 3 hard away games coming up it was vital we got three points today.”

“I hope the lads and fans of Worsbrough have a good weekend – and enjoy their night.”
