MIDGLEY United boss Craig Gee believes Sowerby Bridge are favourites for the Haslem-Sheppard Halifax AFL title this season. Gee’s table-toppers were beaten 3-0 by Bridge at Walton Street on Saturday, prompting the visitors’ experienced manager to write off his side’s chances of being champions and nominating Bridge as the likely winners.”I think they are favourites to win it,” said Gee.“Sowerby Bridge are a good team, very strong, and you have got to stand up to them. We lost one or two battles and got bullied in some areas.”Midgley still have a six-point lead at the top but Sowerby Bridge, Shelf FC and Shelf United can all overhaul them if they win their games in hand.“I think we are out of it to be honest. We have lost three and that is too many,” said Gee, whose side have also dropped vital points to lowly pair Denholme United and Ryburn United.The first half of Saturday’s match was goalless with Gee believing his side had … [Read more...] about Bridge show title credentials

Register for our free newsletterPREMIER LEAGUE WEEKLY returns after a short holiday, with the season getting into its stride as we reach the milestone of ten games played this weekend. While most of the big boys play on Sunday or Monday, we are dropping to the lower reaches of the league to look at the Premier League’s oldest manager and his chances of survival. *warning – video above contains VERY strong language For well over a quarter of a century, Neil Warnock has been one of the strident personalities of English football. Never short of an opinion or two, a frequent critic of referees and linesmen, and a manager that opposition fans love to hate, Warnock has carved a niche for himself in the game. But the truth is that the man would not survived so long without being successful. Even Warnock’s greatest detractor could not argue with his list of achievements. Taking Cardiff City up in May secured a record eighth promotion for him, achieved with seven different … [Read more...] about Premier League Weekly: Is the top flight a bridge too far for Cardiff City boss Neil Warnock?
