Mimir finals and Feeney/Rendon Cups

The Wirral Quiz League would like to offer huge congratulations to both Karl Whelan and Jim Eccleson for reaching the grand final of the mimir competition. 

The final will be played on May 16th at the Unison club in St Helens and it would be nice to see Wirral players turn out to support Karl and Jim.

You can watch the two semi-finals below:

The Feeney cup will see three representatives from Wirral, Oxton Cons, New Broom and Hoylake LTC. The Rendon cup will see both Bebington Hockey and Soapsuds competing.

Details of the matches for these competitions will be posted when we have them. The Rendon cup has been won by Wirral teams for the previous two seasons and hopefully this year's representatives will bring the trophy back to Wirral and all supporters are always welcomed.

 

Division Two promotion

An astonishing finish to the second division has seen Soapsuds sneak the final promotion spot.

They had to beat promotion rivals Wallaseyans and hope that Cheshire Cheese did them a favour against Roundheads.

Soapsuds won and Cheshire Cheese defeated Roundheads and so next season Soapsuds will be making their debut in division one.

Huge congratulations to the entire team whom I believe are the only side to have fielded an all female team on occasions this season.

Division One CHAMPIONS

After five years in a row of finishing second, Oxton Conservatives are no longer the bridesmaids. They sealed the 1st division title with a narrow 1 point win over We're fourth art thou David.

Many congratulations to them and commiserations to New Broom who have ran them so close all season but can take solace in the runner's up trophy and a place in the Feeny Cup.

Division Two CHAMPIONS

Huge congratulations to Bebington Hockey who have sealed the division two title and an immediate return to Wirral division one.

The second promotion spot goes down to the final day of the season. 1 point separates the top 3 and the top 2, Wallaseyans and Roundheads are level on points and only separated by a points difference of 3!

Presidents Shield

Congratulations to the Wirral 2nd division team for finishing 2nd (of 6) in the President's shield despite having recorded just one point from their first three matches.

The team have now qualified for the Presidential Challenge giving them an opportunity to retain the competition they won last year.

If you would like to be considered for the team in future seasons then please contact Steve Lomas of Aardvarks
