BRIGG BLOG'S FOOTBALL ROUND-UP - SATURDAY NOVEMBER 24 2018
Brigg Town Football Club enjoyed a fine 4-0 home win over Lincoln Moorlands Railway at The Hawthorns yesterday (Saturday, November 24, 2018).
This was in the second round of the Lincolnshire Challenge Cup.
In the EC Surfacing Ltd Scunthorpe & District Football League, Barnetby United Reserves are through to the final of the Brotherhood Cup.
The players made it a day to remember for boss Marcus Davies as he completed 100 games in charge by triumphing 5-0 away to New Holland Villa.
The final performance, built on the solid foundations of a fifth clean sheet of the season by the back line, saw them set up a final with Sherpa who defeated Epworth Town Colts Blues 2-1 in the other semi-final tie.
Goals by Jake Powell and Dawid Kotwica backed up yet another hat-trick from Sylvester saw them through to the final on Thursday, March 21st at The Birkdale Stadium, Bottesford.
But Barnetby United's first teamers suffered their fourth straight defeat.
They paid for a poor start as goals by Batty and Plumtree put Limestone Rangers 2-0 up in the opening seven minutes of the division one game at Silver Street.
Barnetby finally woke up and could have been on level terms by half-time but the problem of converting chances is becoming an ongoing issue.
Hunt hit the bar if the second half but Limestone stood firm.
Our thanks go to Lee Fielden for the information about Barnetby's games.
Briggensians' division one game away to Crosby Colts was postponed, while Hibaldstow Wanderers suffered a 13-0 defeat in division two at Limestone Rangers Reserves.
