Brigg Town's History
01. Apr 2006 at 08:43
 
Brigg Town Football Club are the oldest association football team in Lincolnshire, England, dating to 1864.
 
Known as the Zebras, they wear black and white as home colors and have in recent years played in the Northern Counties East League. Champions of the league in the 2000/2001 season, they were denied promotion to the Unibond Northern Premier League because improvements to their ground were not completed before the deadline. They were runners-up the two following years but only the champions of the NCE League are promoted as a rule. However, after finishing third in the 2003/2004 season they were promoted as a part of the National League System restructuring.
 
On the national level Brigg Town have won the FA Vase twice, in 1996 and 2003, under longtime manager Ralph Clayton. In the 2001/2002 FA Cup, they defeated eventual Nationwide Conference champions Boston United F.C. before being beaten by Tranmere Rovers F.C. who ranked five levels above them on the football pyramid...(Source Wikipedia)
