BRIGG TOWN THE BEST-SUPPORTED FOOTBALL TEAM IN THE LEAGUE
Brigg Town Football Club had to settle for runners-up spot in the Balcan Lighting Supplies Lincolnshire League Premier at the end of the 2018/19 season which drew to a close earlier this month.
However, the Zebras did finish top in the attendance table compiled for the campaign.
The average for league games at The Hawthorns was 109, with 142 supporters being the highest and 97 the lowest.
Surprisingly, champions Lincoln Moorlands Railway only averaged 39 fans for home matches.
Brigg finished four points behind Moorlands during the 22-match programme in which the Zebras won 15 league matches, drew five and lost only two.
Town also played in the last game of 2018/19, losing 1-0 at The Hawthorns to Lincoln United Reserves in the Challenge Cup final on Friday, May 10 at The Hawthorns.
Brigg's leading scorer in Premier games was Jake Reed with 13, while Reece Moody managed 11 (including two penalties).
With success gained in other cup finals and second place achieved in the league, it proved to be a fine season for the club.
With the Brigg players now enjoying a well-deserved break, thoughts begin to turn to next season.
