DAMIEN STEER: Goalkeeper. In his fifth season after signing from Spalding United. An excellent shot stopper who has proved himself as the first choice keeper.
JAMES NORTON: Goalkeeper. New signing last season. Former Grimsby Town junior and Loughborough Student, where he was part of the University Championship winning side. Full time goalkeeper coach.
DAN HOPE: Defender. In his seventh season with Brigg, and continues to improve. Solid defender, good in the air and packs a powerful left foot shot. Has been used with some good effect as an emergency striker.

ALEX ALLEN: Defender. In his third season with the Zebras, having signed from Gainsborough Trinity, where he played in the UniBond Premier League, before suffering a knee ligament injury. Now appears to be back to full fitness. Former Norwich City player, where he was awarded a two year contract following a YTS.

LEE COCHRANE: Defender. This is his third season, and he continues to impress. Cultured, but strong defender, who was previously captain of Barnstaple Town in the Western League.

STEVE HOUSHAM: Defender/Midfield. Signed for Brigg four seasons ago, but appearances limited, until 2003/04 season owing to his commitments with Barrow in the UniBond Premier division. Former Scunthorpe United player who made 106 League appearances. Scorer of spectacular first goal in 2002/03 season FA Vase Final win. Has now taken on the role of team captain, and leads by example.

TOMMY SPALL:  Defender/Midfield. Now in his third season for his second spell with the club, having signed Winterton Rangers. He has shown that he is up to the challenge of UniBond football, and never stops running.

LEE WARREN: Defender/Midfield. In his second season after a short spell with Goole. Experienced former Barrow player, with over 300 football league appearances with Rochdale, Hull City and Doncaster Rovers.

CRAIG STONES: Midfield. In his seventh year having signed from Spalding United. Formerly with Lincoln City, where he made 20 first team appearances. Has also spent a short time with Gainsborough Trinity. Has also shown himself to be a very capable central defender.

STUART AINSLEY: Midfield. Former Hull City Junior, in his second season, and possesses a deadly left foot, particularly effective at set pieces. Has previously played for Whitley Bay in the Northern League.

JOHN BORLAND: Midfield. New signing this season following his re- location in the area. Formely with Burnley and Scunthorpe United, before joining Accrington Stanley. Other clubs include Chorley, and last season he was captain of Liversedge.

NATHAN IRELAND: Midfield. Formerly with Doncaster Rovers, and a new face at the Hawthorns this season. Shown up well in pre-season games, and looks to have a good engine.

MICHAEL RICHARDSON: Midfield. Signed midway through last season from Tadcaster Albion. His limited appearances showed him to be a good passer of the ball, and a tenacious tackler.

SIMON ROACH: Forward: Now in his seventeenth season at Brigg, after signing from local football. A very loyal and talented player, equally effective on either flank, or down the middle. A consistent goalscorer, and played in both Brigg’s FA Vase wins.

SIMON DRAYTON: Forward. In his fifth season, after spending two years with Gainsborough Trinity in the UniBond Premier League. Has a lot of pace, and in the past has shown to be a proven goalscorer.

PAUL GRIMES: Forward/Midfield. New signing this season from Central Midlands League Championship winning team, Barton Town Old Boys. Very quick, with loads of skill, and should make the grade at a higher level.

KARL SLACK: Forward. Signed from local football. A proven goalscorer with pace to burn. Definitely has the talent to progress to a higher level.

JOHN EYRE: Forward/Midfield. Made 305 League appearances, scoring 79 goals, for Oldham Athletic, Scunthorpe United and Hull City. Recruited this season after being with North Ferriby United last season.

JASON MAXWELL: Forward. New signing this season. Experience forward, who started with Scunthorpe United before spells at Grantham Town, Buxton, Gainsborough Trinity (twice), Bradford Park Avenue and latterly Belper Town.

ANDY WARD: Forward. Joined Brigg this season after being released by Grimsby Town. Looks to have the pace and skill to upset defences at this level, and beyond.

ANDY DAWSON: Forward. One of the first Brigg Town Junior players to come up through the age groups and challenge for a first team place. Equally at home up front or in defence. Made his UniBond League debut last season.
ASA INGALL: vastly experienced non-league journeyman, with football league experience, Asa has represented England at college national level and is equally adept whether playing in defence, midfield or as a forward, signed from Belper mid-season.

DAVE McLEAN: Manager. Very experienced former club captain, who led by example. Played league football for Newcastle Utd, Darlington and Scunthorpe Utd. This is Dave’s third season in management, but has served the club as player and coach, for seventeen years.
DAVE ANDREWS: Assistant Manager. Former Gainsborough Trinity player, with a lot of experience managing at the local level, and has managed Brigg’s reserve team.
