Midfield brain-box Liam Owen is back for a fourth stint with Worsbrough Bridge.
Owen, the brother of well known striker Jack, joins from Nostell Miners Welfare where has mostly spent the last three years.
He was a mainstay of Jason Dodsworth and Simon Houghton’s squad which turned Nostell from the league’s whipping boys into promotion contenders in no time at all.
Owen’s last stint with Worsbrough was during the 2018/19 season when he left Nostell for a short while.
He first played for Bridge during Dave Mace’s only season in charge – the 2014/15 campaign. He then returned at the tail-end of Josh Wright’s reign in 2017, whilst at the same time testing himself in the NPL with Ossett Town.
Like most managers, Bridge boss Lee Morris is clearly ensuring he has a big squad for the planned Toolstation NCEL Division One season in September.
Midweek games are expected to be at record levels and with the amount of travelling still high, clubs are preparing to run with large squads.
In addition to Owen, Morris has added Regan Rooke, Alex Netherwood and Jordan Evans to his squad.
Rooke is a striker who previously played for Frickley, while defender Netherwood, formerly of Chesterfield, played for Worsbrough’s under 21s last season.
