'MUST WIN' GAME COMING UP FOR BRIGG FOOTBALLERS
A football team from Brigg faces a 'must win' game this Saturday to keep alive hopes of gaining promotion.
Currently fourth in division three of the TSW Printers Scunthorpe & District Football League, Briggensians FC will journey to second-in-the-table AFC Blades on Saturday, April 1 (3pm KO).
Yesterday (Saturday, March 25) Briggensians suffered a heavy 11-0 defeat at Shape Changers, who clinched promotion having won 12 and drawn one of their 13 league fixtures, scoring well over 100 goals in the process!
It also proved to be an off day for Barnetby United yesterday.
The first team lost 3-0 at Limestone Rangers in division one, while the Reserves went down 5-1 when hosting AFC Blades.
This coming Saturday, Barnetby's first teamers will be at home to College Wanderers (3pm KO).
2.27pm: Promotion-chasing Scunthorpe United won 3-2 against Bradford. It was a nervy performance by the Iron at times but collecting all three points sees them in fourth place.
