Supporting a community club

WNJ is helping to support Bamber Bridge football club as it looks towards another successful season on and off the pitch.

Often referred to as ‘Brig’ this community club is looking for more help from local businesses in its quest to rise up the football pyramid.

WNJ is the club’s accountancy practice and our advertising hoarding will be seen by supporters watching Brig at the Sir Tom Finney Stadium this season.

Bamber Bridge FC will start life in the EVO-STIK NPL Premier Division with an away game at Grantham Town on Saturday August 18.

Fans will get a chance to see the side in league action for the first time a week later when they entertain Workington on Tuesday 21 August, kick off is 7:45 p.m.

The club was promoted in May after emerging victorious in a tense play-off final against Prescot Cables, in front of more than 1,600 fans. The academy team also gained success by winning the league title and securing a place in the Under 21 League for 2018 / 19.

This year is also the 135th since a football club was first formed in Bamber Bridge, which is being marked with a number of promotional events.

Managing Director Alan Grant (pictured left) says: “Every year the club punches above its weight on and off the pitch, often facing opponents with seemingly limitless resources.

“The role-played by our supporters and local businesses in our successes to date cannot be overstated. Their backing has allowed us to continue to grow and as we move forward facing new challenges, we remain heavily reliant on their on-going support and generosity.”

“We hope to attract many more local businesses to help us and we are keen to maintain ‘the feel-good-factor’ that has seen our community get fully behind the club for many years.”

This family club has strong links with local primary and secondary schools and colleges as well as UCLan. It also has a strong relationship with Preston North End; Blackburn Rovers Ladies; Everton FC and recyclinglives.

The club actively supports many charities including Heartbeat, Baby Beat, St Catherine’s Hospice, Rosemere Clinic and Rainbow House.
