Brig return to training without Waddecar

Bamber Bridge have returned to training without top scorer Alistair Waddecar, who is awaiting surgery on a hernia issue.

Jamie Milligan’s side held an open training session at Irongate on Saturday, as clubs across the Northern Premier League gear up for a possible return to action in September.

Milligan told the club’s official website: “They’ve come back in good nick, we set runs for them to do all throughout the lockdown.

“They’ve all come back and they all look in decent shape. We’ve just got to keep going now – there’s no easy way around pre-season, you’ve got to get the work done and get through it.

“(Ali) needs his operation still, hopefully he’ll get it done soon. It’s just been hard because he’s not been able to get in (due to the pandemic).

“Everyone else has come back in good health, we just need to work hard and get one or two more players in, a couple of young lads and a couple of loans, and just get going really.”

Meanwhile, Bamber Bridge have launched a range of official face masks, which can be purchased via the clubhouse or online to help support the club and stop the spread of coronavirus.
