NEW DATE FOR BRIGG SCHOOL REUNION MATCH
A new date has been announced for a traditional sports match and school reunion in Brigg.
The Old Boys (Briggensians' Association) XI will now play a cricket team from Sir John Nelthorpe School in the annual friendly match at SJN on Friday, July 6.
That's a month later than originally scheduled.
July 6 is also the date of Brigg Bike Night - so some of us are going to be busy!
Originally, Old Boys v The School was played on the pristine grass cricket square at Brigg Grammar School, the fixture lasting until comprehensive education arrived in 1976 and then being continued by SJN and the Briggensians to this day.
This year's encounter will start at 6pm.
The Summer Sports Reunion will then continue for the Old Boys with a visit to the Yarborough Hunt, Bridge Street, from about 9pm.
Briggensians unable to make the match are welcome to join the team at the hostelry to hear how things went.
The annual Old Boys v School cricket match is thought to have been established during the 1920s.
Brigg Blog has already received inquiries about the date of the 2018 match so please pass on the July 6 date to anyone you may know who is interested in taking part.
