    Highlight: Played his 126th game and scored, for the Wanderers against Brisbane Roar in Round 14 of Season 2017/18, making him the highest capped Wanderers player at that point.
    Description: Mark Bridge revitalised his career after being used sparingly in his final years at Sydney FC with his consistency at the highest level stopping him from achieving his potential. After a season under Tony Popovic Bridge gained a new sense of professionalism, winning the club golden boot award in 2012/13 and earning a 3 year extension to his contract. He left the club for a lucrative contract in Thailand, but returned to Australia shortly after, re-joining the Wanderers on a 2 year contract. In 2017/18 Bridge finished the 2nd highest scorer but his 5 goal output had a minimal impact on the Wanderers fortunes and he began to look off the pace at the end of the season. He was injured for almost the entire 2018/19 season and subsequently retired from professional football.

if he is to be slotted into another role, then the question is what are his non-footballing strengths?

Santa was offered a similar non playing type role last year, wonder what?

From a fox sports article re: Babbel unhappy with losing players to olyroos 

As has been the case all season, injuries continue to plague Babbel’s men. Striker Mark Bridge is doubtful after suffering “problems with his muscle” after two bench appearances following a long absence.

On the six hour run it took me to get home last night from Newy I happened to hear King Fat Head do a radio ad for a certain bunch of  ̶a̶m̶b̶u̶l̶a̶n̶c̶e̶ ̶c̶h̶a̶s̶e̶r̶s̶  compensation lawyers.

Definitely an inverse relationship between his goal scoring capabilities & public speaking talent.

Decided to go via train there & back...the run up was good...took about 3 hours.

Run back required waiting at Broadmeadow for about 20 minutes, then an all stations train to Wyong where buses were on duty as there was track work between there & Gosford. Got to Gosford & no train south for 45 minutes. Then from there to Strathfield where, because someone got themselves killed at Granville there were no trains leaving on the western line. After an hour's diversion to Olympic Park & switching to another train it was an all stations to the Riff.

Gotta love public transport.
