(Sporting) Life begins at 40? 50?.... Try 61.
The average age of the back line in the Brigg Hockey Club 4th XI.
In a recent fixture we played second in the table Grimsby 2nds, whose average age was considerable less than ours. We beat them 2-0.
As well as us oldies at the back (oldest Alan West at 65, youngest me at 58) we had two players at 45. Throw in a couple of 30 pluses and three under 25s to do the running and we had a very balanced team.
We will finish halfway in Yorkshire Division 6 North and are looking forward to next season and maybe a promotion push.
Are there other teams of similar vintage locally?
