Southport and Formby Quiz League : Quiz Notes
By Tom Farley

Week ending 27th September 2014

Division One
This week’s Monday questions were tough and the Tuesday questions even more so, with each set producing an upset. On Monday, good scoring from John Richards 12 and Ian Jackson 10 of Devonshire Club proved too strong for Casablanca in winning 39 - 31, Chris Sumner 11 leading for the visitors. Fishermen’s Rest handled the Tuesday questions marginally better than Formby Sports to come out on top 25 - 24 led by Phil Lally 11. E Street Band managed only two 2 pointers at Wings in going down 42 - 19 with Tom Farley 16 and Dag Griffiths 15 leading for the home side.

Division Two
Fine scoring from Frank Gracie 14, Nick Aindow 13 and Margaret Copplestone 10 led Formby Pabvilion to a comfortable 40 - 26 victory over Exams with Nick Philpott 11 leading for the visitors. Led by Geoff Wilde 16 and John Hill 13, Southport FC continued their promotion form with a solid 40 - 27 victory at MPs. A fine 18 from John Hoyle led St Jeromes to a 35 - 25 victory over Ex - Pats with Kath Jackson 10 leading for the visitors. Ainsdale Sands didn’t like the Tuesday questions at all going down 32 - 13 at Quads, probably making their lowest - ever score. Tony Duffey 11 and Adrian Cannell 10 led for Quads.
