FORMER BRIGG SCHOOL FRIENDS REUNITED
Former Brigg school chums Simon Church and Chris Jacklin were reunited in Perth, Australia, over Christmas.
Simon’s family were hosts for a visit by the Jacklins.
School-wise Chris and Simon are not-so-old Briggensians and also played cricket for Brigg
Simon and Chris “catch up” often, despite Chris and his wife Ria now being based in Singapore.
Recently, they were in touch on ‘Facetime’, just as Chris was about to meet and greet another former cricketer and Brigg schoolmate, Paul Jenkinson.
Chris and Paul were planning to watch the Chelsea v Scunthorpe FA Cup clash on TV – in Clarke Quay, Singapore. It’s a small world, as the saying goes.
