Brigg Town Cricket Club has played in a wide range of competitions since its formation in 1974, including knockout competitions organised by various leagues including Lincolnshire County, South Humberside Alliance, Broughton & District Evening, North Lindsey, Grimsby, East Yorkshire Alliance and Lincoln & District.
But tomorrow (Saturday, May 26) Town will be playing their first tie in a brand new knockout - the Lincolnshire County Cricket League Supplementary Cup.
This is 30 overs a side, rather than 45, with games starting at 2pm, instead of 1.30pm.
The traditional and lengthy tea interval has been replaced by a shorter drinks and snack break to ensure an earlier finish.
The competition is being trialled by the Lincs League and how it its received by players, clubs and spectators will be reviewed at the end of the season.
The Supplementary Cup 2018 sees teams playing each other in a 'round robin' group stage, with the winner of each mini-league going through to the semi-finals.
Brigg's opening game tomorrow sees them hosting Alkborough 2nds at the Recreation Ground.
It's hoped that if the weather is fine, many spectators will pop down to the Rec to watch Brigg in action on the newly relaid square.
