BRIGG TOWN CRICKETERS MEET OLD RIVALS THIS WEEKEND
After some weeks of Supplementary Cup action, Brigg Town Cricket Club will be returning to Lincolnshire County Cricket League Division Three action at the Recreation Ground on Saturday (June 22).
Brigg host Barton Town 2nds (1.30pm start) and spectators are welcome. It's a 45 overs a side contest, expected to last into the early evening.
The Brigg and Barton clubs have played each other, on and off, for decades - in the Lincs League, the Broughton & District Evening League, the Humberside Alliance, the North Lindsey League and the Scunthorpe Intermediate League.
Barton Town CC was formed in the 1840s, while Brigg had a team as far back as the 1820s, although our club disappeared for three decades until the mid-1970s when it was relaunched.
Broughton first teamers have a Division One home game coming up against Normanby Park this Saturday, while Broughton 2nds will be hosting Cleethorpes 4ths on Sunday in Division Three.
Brigg Town Cricket Club features on the front cover of the latest issue of Brigg Matters Magazine, and inside there's a feature article about the club and its history. Have you got your copy yet?
Hibaldstow were defeated in Sunday's game in the North Lindsey Cricket League's Knockout Cup Group B. Scunthorpe side Appleby-Frodingham clinched top spot in the group with a five-wicket win at Hibaldstow, who set a target of 146 for eight, Lee Robinson top scoring with 70. But Simon Taylor's 52 and Jay Beattie's 42 not out saw the Steelmen through to the last four.
