A New year . . . and a new start with this series in which we will acknowledge the birthdays of our players, starting with Danny Bridge, who is 26 today (Friday).
Happy birthday Danny boy from everyone at the Roughyeds, including the fans who are eagerly looking forward to the 2019 season and particularly the first home game against Rochdale Hornets, on Sunday, January 20, for the right to lift the Law Cup.
Oldham-born Danny, the younger brother of former Bradford, Warrington and England centre Chris Bridge, played at Royton Tigers as a boy before he had spells with Wigan and Warrington.
He went to Bradford on loan, then came Rochdale, and then two years in Queensland with Redcliffe Dolphins before the wanderer returned “home” to proudly wear the colours of his home-town club.
We’ve been raising a glass for 2019 and the new season but now it’s time to toast our very own Danny boy. Have a great day Danny !
