ADRIAN GIBBONS MEMORIAL FOOTBALL MATCH 2018 COMING UP AT BRIGG TOWN FC
The annual Adrian Gibbons memorial football match will be played on Saturday, April 28, 2018 at the Hawthorns - courtesy of Brigg Town Football Club.
The game - involving local players who knew him well - will kick-off at 3pm, and all money raised on the day will go to the British Heart Foundation.
This is likely to be a four-figure sum.
Many of the players and spectators will be having an after-game drink or two in the Hawthorns bar, raising a glass to Gibb.
Adrian, a former pupil of Brigg Grammar School, was a very well-known local sportsman, a long-serving teacher at Sir John Nelthorpe School and a devoted family man.
He played football for a number of local teams including Brigg Town and Briggensians in the Scunthorpe & District League.
Well over 600 mourners attended Gibb's funeral service held at St John's Church, Brigg, in March 2014.
