Briggs, Gary Gary's always got time for people. He used to hang about in town by Wilkos in Blackpool for a while and would often spit his coffee out laughing when people said.."Hey Gary, hoof it, put some snow on it!" Those were the days. He laughs now when you point out to him he'd be sent off in nearly every game with his tackles! All the best Gary.

Briggs, Gary Gary Briggs was a tough tackling centre back. He was excellent in the air and partnered by Malcolm Shotton. I think he was there when Ray Houghton, John Aldridge and. Billy Hamilton reigned supreme. Really good dependable centre back.

Briggs, Gary I went to the same senior school as Gary. He was a nice bloke, always ready with a smile whenever you saw him. I haven't seen him since I left school, but I'm glad he enjoyed such a successful career in football.
