BRIGG TOWN FC CLOSE THE GAP
Brigg Town Football Club remain at the foot of the Toolstation Northern Counties East First Division, despite taking a point from their Christmas fixture yesterday (Saturday, December 23).
The Zebras drew 2-2 with seventh-placed Campion at The Hawthorns before a crowd of 104.
Jonny Nicholls and Ryan Thompson scored for Brigg, who were left to rue a missed penalty.
Retford Town - the team immediately above Brigg in the table - lost 3-0.
So Brigg closed the gap and also have a much better goal difference than Retford.
The Zebras' next game is a return match at Bradford-area Campion this Saturday (December 30).
In the EC Surfacing Ltd Scunthorpe & District Football League, there were no fixtures yesterday for Briggensians, Barnetby United or Barnetby Reserves.
Nor do any of them have games coming up on the 30th.
