Bamber Bridge are looking forward to parading the Integro League Cup in front of their fans before their final home game of the EVO-STIK Northern Premier League season on Saturday when they host Ossett Albion at The Sir Tom Finney Stadium.
The EVO-STIK NPL First Division North club's stars lifted the trophy for the second time in their history on Wednesday night with a 2-1 victory over EVO-STIK NPL Premier Division rivals Grantham Town at Leek Town's Harrison Park.
After winning the EVO-STIK NPL's cup competition for the first time in 1995 with a 2-1 win over Bishop Auckland, Jamie Milligan put Neil Reynolds' Brig side ahead on the stroke of half-time before Regan Linney extended their advantage on 57 minutes, Danny Meadows replying for the valiant Gingerbreads six minutes later.
