Cup-winners! 8-1 triumph gives cup to Briggensians


Congratulations to Briggensians first team, who are pictured in celebratory mood after winning the final of the Ironstone Cup with a rather decisive 8-1 scoreline.

You might want to look at this picture frequently if depressed about the performance of certain other teams.

Or you might not.

David Holmes - in the Land of Opportunity


David is living in Newark, Delaware and playing and coaching soccer for the South Jersey Barons based in Ocean City, New Jersey. He writes:

"Just wanted to drop a line in to anyone that knows me. I was at SJN from 1981-86 and the Sixth Form from 1986-88.

I now live in the land of opportunity. I am in my seventh season playing football professionally, but not in the MLS unfortunately, (, after a fantastic college career. I was only supposed to come out here for 3 months!!! I also manage a football shop which you can check out at I coach five teams in my spare time for the almighty dollar.

I married my college sweetheart, Angie, and we now have two brilliant little girls. Abbey is 20 months, and Natalie is 5 months.

If any of the crew between those years can drop me a line I would appreciate it. I haven't heard from many people since I was at the last Briggensian footy match in 1995."
