WHAT WILL NEXT SEASON BE LIKE FOR BRIGG TOWN FC AND ITS FANS?
We don't expect that Brigg Town Football Club playing first team fixtures in the Lincolnshire League next season will result in a significant dip in home attendances at The Hawthorns.
Brigg finished second from bottom in the Northern Counties East First Division in April and have been relegated.
However, despite being in a lower tier of the footballing pyramid structure, quite a few home games during the 2018/2019 season will be against teams within decent driving distance of Brigg, including Lincoln, Immingham, Grimsby and Gainsborough.
So perhaps this will lead to more away fans coming to see their sides in action at the Hawthorns.
Dropping down several divisions in recent seasons has not hugely affected home attendances.
Supporters of teams in Grimsby and Gainsborough will be able to use the Saturdays-only passenger train service to get to and from Brigg, affording them the opportunity to enjoy a few pints in Brigg Town's bar before setting off home.
The Zebras played in the Lincolnshire League for several decades after the Second World War before moving up the ladder. So the wheel has turned full circle.
