This was a first round tie in the Bob Welton Cup, organised by the Lincolnshire County Cricket League (sponsored by Readers).
The game went according to the form book, with second division Messingham comfortably defeating fourth division Brigg.
Having won the toss, the villagers elected to bat first and compiled 230 for six in their 45 overs.
Opener Max Metheringham batted right through to finish unbeaten on 69, while the hard-hitting Rob Talbot cracked 109 in the middle-order before being run out.
Also into double figures were all-rounder Richards, with 15, and Mark Cawkwell, who made 14.
The wickets were shared between six Messingham bowlers, the best figures being two for 20 in nine overs from James Taylor.
Brigg Town are without a fixture this coming Saturday (May 13).
