Annual East Cheshire Hospice Quiz

The above event is well worth your support will take place this year at Fallibroome High School, Priory Lane on Friday the 27th of June (7pm entry for a 7.30pm start).

The quiz is organised by Paul Morrissey to ensure the questions are fair and sensible and is an important fund raiser for the Hospice, often I’m told outdoing the Summer Fete held the following day. The quiz originally started back in the day as a way of utilising the empty marquee on the Friday night!

The event is light hearted and would be ideally suited to League teams who fancy a night out with good beer and the entry fee includes a ploughman’s supper, albeit Paul says a genuine ploughman might have something to say about that…

You can find all the details and entry forms etc at the link below to the East Cheshire Hospice website…


Cars and Vans 4U Ltd Question Setters Trophy

Week 17...

Tuesday the 22nd of April sees the last League games of this season with much still up for grabs.

Only the Lamb Inn have fallen through the relegation trapdoor so far, albeit the New Castle and the Church House Bollington have an uphill mathematical struggle in the A League tonight whether they win or lose.

The B League title still hinges on tonight’s results - The Harrington Academicals could pinch it from the British Flag if they win and score heavily enough - whilst the final relegation place rests between the Three Crowns and the Baths Hotel.

In the C League the Knot Inn are champions and assured of going up whilst the Albion have gone from strength to strength after their team’s trip to the barbers and will join the Knot if they can win tonight. If the Albion lose tonight, a win for the Puss Artists could see them pinch the second spot.

There are also lots of people in all 3 Leagues who could still get into the “Top 10” individual places depending upon tonight’s performances.

See here soon for the results of the final conflict...

Cup & Plate Semi Finals...

Cars and Vans 4U Ltd Question Setters Trophy

Week 16...

Some issues settled this week but much remaining to be decided in the final two weeks of League action on the 15th and 22nd of April.

The Ox-fford sealed their third successive A League title with a 174 - 124 win over the Castle. Since the turn of the millennium only the Ox-fford or the Dolphin have won the A League, but this season has shown that the Principals are now a mighty force to be reckoned with after adding to their squad at the start of the season. The Ox-ffords / Dolphins and the Principals look set to contest the A League scenario for a while yet, unless you fancy the challenge...

The runner up spot is still up for grabs and any of the following three teams can still do it.

At the other end of the table, 2 from 3 of the Castle, New Castle and the Church House Bollington will go down to the B League. Tonight sees a "4 Pointer" between the Castle and the Church House with the winners surely staying up and the losers going down.

In the B League, congratulations to the British Flag and the Harrington Academicals, both playing in the A League next season and deservedly so. The Flag just need 1 more point to secure the B League title from a mathematical perspective.

At the bottom end, the Lamb Inn have it all to do and the Three Crowns and the Baths Hotel are the others under threat. The George & Dragon continue the most remarkable "game of two halves" ever seen with their 6th consecutive win after their 8 consecutive defeats at the start of the season.

In the C League, hats off to the Knot Inn, Champions and promoted to the B League at the very first time of asking - an excellent effort. Runner up spot is still anyone's guess with the Puss Artists and the revitalised Albion fighting tooth and nail, although the Sutton Church House and the Park Tavern can't be ruled out either.

Much more discussion will follow after tonight's results...
