Sir John Nelthorpe School in Brigg kept up an old tradition stretching back to the days of Brigg Grammar School (pre-1976) last night (Friday June 7when it hosted a cricket match between a School XI and members of the Briggensians' Association, representing former pupils.
The School set the Old Boys a daunting target of 130, which proved just beyond them on a perfect night for cricket - bright sunshine and no hint of rain.
Afterwards the Briggensians met up at the Yarborough Hunt, in Brigg, for a few drinks and a chat about old times.
Jon Taylor, of Hibaldstow Cricket Club, umpired the match and was thanked by both teams.
