Briggs Social FC won the Doncaster Senior League in 1951/52 and entered the Yorkshire Lge the following season under the name Briggs Sports Club http://fchd.info/BRIGGSSC.HTM

Their parent company was Briggs Motor Bodies, who had relocated from bomb-damaged Essex. Their factory was somewhere along Carr Hill / Balby Carr Bank ...plenty of space down there for a private sports ground?!

"In 1953 Ford {Motor Company} bought Briggs Motor Bodies and then {in 1964 ?} sold the Doncaster factory, which made bodies for Javelins and Bradford vans, to International Harvester." http://fchd.info/INTERNAH.HTM
