Tuesday sees Brigg Town Cricket Club kick off a new season in a new league.
Brigg has put a team into the West Wold Evening League for the very first time and (weather permitting) will be hosting Brocklesby Park at the Recreation Ground, off Wrawby Road, from 6pm.
Back in the mid-1970s, Brigg joined the Broughton and District Evening League and enjoyed many happy years in that competition.
Sadly it folded a few years ago due to a declining number of teams, with changing, and longer, working hours being blamed by many players at the time.
It was just no longer possible to get away from work for an early evening match, especially away from home.
