Joining West Ham from local side, Adam and Eve FC, Bridgeman scored West Ham's first ever goal at Upton Park in a 3-0 win against Millwall in September 1904. Folklore has it that he scored all three goals in this game although some references show one of the goals being scored by another player, Jack Flynn.
Bridgeman left West Ham in 1906 to join Chelsea, helping them gain promotion to the First Division in 1912. After 160 games with Chelsea he moved to Southend United, where he ended his footballing career.
