PROGRESS REPORT: THE HETT CUP 2019 AT BRIGG TOWN FOOTBALL CLUB

The  Hett Cup pictured at Brigg Town Football Club's Hawthorns venue after the final a few years ago - see Nigel Fisher's Brigg Blog

Here's an update for football fans following progress in the 2019 Hett Cup, games being played at Brigg Town Football Club's Hawthorns ground to raise funds for local worthy causes.
Bad weather has hit some of the scheduled games in recent weeks, resulting in re-arrangements. Ties are played at night - under lights - and spectators are welcome.
Local official Lee Fielden, from Barnetby, has just supplied this update...
The last of the first round matches will hopefully take place this Wednesday (February 27) the re-arranged Barnetby United v Scotter United tie - after which the semi-final draw will take place.
Results so far have been: Broughton WMC 6-1 Ulceby, Brigg Town CIC 3-0 Briggensians, Limestone Rangers 3-0 AFC Brigg.

Hi,

Do you know anything of the history of the Hett Cup? It's an interesting name but I can't find anything online about it.

thanks

Frank C. Hett was a very prominent figure in Brigg - being a solicitor and clerk to the guardians who ran the Workhouse - and we know that the trophy in 1913 was won by Brigg Football Club.The Hett Cup was brought back into use a few years ago - after a long absence - with local clubs competing in ties at The Hawthorns - Brigg Town FC's ground.
