Andrea Jones - Sad News

Andrea Jones, who died suddenly on Saturday 28th July, was a founder member of the Ovalteenies quiz team. Andrea played for Ovalteenies for many years, eventually becoming team captain, a role she did not relish, but fulfilled extremely well. She even survived a recent team name change to “Cheshire Cheese”.

Known as ‘our welsh correspondent’ she was not only proud to answer questions about the principality, but had a habit of correcting the pronunciation when others ventured answers to ‘Welsh’ questions. She was the cohesive force of her team, ever optimistic, and who will forget the slight groan followed by “come on, team” if things were not going to plan. She was a popular player who will be missed by all.

Wirral Quiz League mentioned in Liverpool Echo

The Liverpool Echo have done an article on the event which can be found here.

Mimir

The Wirral Quiz League would like to offer huge congratulations to Karl Whelan (Hoylake LTC) who has retained his Mimir trophy for the best individual player across the entire Merseyside Quiz league. To win it once is hard enough but Karl now has four triumphs putting him third on the all time list. It should also be noted that Jim Eccleson (Oxton Cons) came second for a Wirral 1-2. Many congratulations to both players
