Milligan guided the club to the play-off final the season before last where they narrowly missed out on promotion to the National League North after losing 1-0 to Warrington Town.

This season has been challenging not helped by the loss of a number of key players last summer.

Brig flirted with relegation at times before finishing comfortably above the drop zone and they were beaten 5-2 by North West Counties outfit Colne in the final of the Lancashire FA Challenge Trophy.
