Andrea Jones

As you will remember, Andrea Jones sadly passed away last summer. Shortly before her death she recorded episodes of Fifteen to One which will begin airing on Channel 4 on Friday 14th June. You get up to 3 chances to make the final three and so she could be appearing on Monday 17th and Tuesday 18th as well.

Andrea was a huge character in Wirral division 2 and I'm sure seeing her on TV will bring back some happy memories for us all.

Liverpool Pairs Finals 2019

The annual Liverpool pairs competition took place at APH on Presentation Night - 13th May 2019. Both Pam Baker (Soapsuds) and Jon Stitcher (Plasterer's Arms) made and appearance in the final stages.

Last year's winners, Mark Kerr and Jim Toal, set both the written qualifying quiz and the knockout final rounds.  

Wirral successes at finals evening

Congratulations go to Oxton Cons who won the MCC Plate competition with a comfortable win in the final against Judges of Liverpool thanks to a superb all round team performance.

 

Wirral's Karl Whelan and Jim Eccleson were both appearing in the Mimir final against Pat Gibson (of Eggheads fame) and John Wilson, both of Ormskirk. It was a great competition and Karl was leading going into the final 3 questions but Pat knew all 3 and pipped Karl by 1 point.

 

There was also moderate success for Wirral players at the Liverpool Pairs evening. Pam Baker (Soapsuds), who was paired with Stuart Scholes of Kluggers finished 4th and Jon Stitcher (Plasterer's Arms) who was paired with Peter Harris of Aigburth Swans came 3rd.

Mimir finals

Seven Wirral players attended the Merseyside wide finals night for the Mimir, 5 of us fell at the first stage but Karl Whelan and Jim Eccleson went all the way and have qualified for the Mimir final which will take place at 8pm on the 15th May at Hoylake Social Club. This event will also host the MCC final and the MCC plate final, the latter of which will see Wirral team Oxton Conservatives playing.

There is also the presentation of trophies so the Wirral President's Shield team, captained by Steve Lomas will be collecting the President's shield AND the Presidential Challenge. 

The evening will be catered and it would be great to see lots of Wirral players in attendance to cheer on Karl and Jim and to celebrate the great performance of the President's Shield team.
