BRIGG TEAM TO CONTEST CUP FINAL
Congratulations are in order for a sports team from Brigg that has made it through to a cup final.
Brigg Hockey Club's Men's 4th team qualified for the Yorkshire hockey "C" final in April with a hard-fought 3 2 win away to Sheffield Bankers.
Brigg keeper Andrew Markham, pictured above, reports...
Brigg went ahead after 25 minutes through Callum Dyer but were pegged back on the stroke of half-time.
The very skilful and young Bankers side then took the lead at the start of the second period, despite the best efforts of your correspondent in goal!
Brigg equalised through Toby Raspin to set up a close finish.
Sheffield pressed for an equaliser until Graham Ward scored the winner with five minutes left to play.
Brigg now play Sheffield Hallam University in the final.
N.F. ADDS: Good luck to veteran 'Sass' and his outfield colleagues in their big game against the steel city students.
