A football cup final coming up at Brigg Town Football Club's Hawthorns ground will involve two local sides and should attract a good attendance.
Briggensians will meet Barnetby United Reserves in the Johnsons Transport Ironstone Cup final, organised by the EC Surfacing Ltd Scunthorpe & District Football League.
Date and kick-off time to be confirmed.
Yesterday (Saturday, January 26) saw the semi-finals concluded.
Briggensians won 4-0 at home to Limestone Rangers Reserves - the goals coming from Sol Hari, Phil Cole, Matthew Davies and Ben Lingard.
Lee Fielden has kindly supplied a report and pictures from the other semi-final between Barnetby United and Epworth Town Colts Blues...
Barnetby give Epworth Colts the Blues!
Late 2nd half strikes from Josh Goodman and Jaroslav Judiny saw Marcus Davies’s Reserves reach their 2nd final of the season in what was a battle of the top 2 in the 2nd division.
Both sides came into the game sporting outstanding league records - both unbeaten - but something had to give.
A close-fought game was decided in the last half-an-hour when a sublime Goodman finish was backed up by a thumping Judiny strike following a keeping error.
Tough-looking games face our local sides in the EC Surfacing Ltd Scunthorpe & District Football League first division this coming Saturday.
In division one, Briggensians entertain second-placed Scotter United, while Barnetby United visit leaders College Wanderers.
In division two, Barnetby United Reserves will host four-placed New Holland Villa at Silver Street (2pm).
Brigg Town FC's Hawthorns ground will be the venue on Wednesday evening (January 30) when Barnetby United play Scotter United in the Hett Cup, which raises money for worthy causes.
