Sad News - John Davis (Plasterer's Arms)

Sadly we have to report the death of John Davis of The Plasterers quiz team-John was an ever present member of the team until recently

John acted as captain and secretary of Plasterers shortly after the team's formation in the early 1980's

He will be missed by the Wirral Quiz League community and our sympathies are extended to his friends and family

His funeral will take place at Landican Cemetery at 1pm on Monday 25th July 2016-there will be a wake afterwards at the Kings Gap Holiday Inn in Hoylake. Could those wishing to attend the wake contact fellow team member Jon Sticher on 07929 830219 so that the caterers can be informed"

Riley Cup 2016

After some very close quarter and semi-final matches, the final of 2016's Ted Riley cup was played between Oxton Cons of Wirral Division 1 and CTK Wanderers of Liverpool Division 2.  Oxton Cons carried a handicap of 4 points, while CTK were slightly better off with a handicap of 18.

By the end of round 6 the scores were very close and it looked like Oxton were on course to overhaul the deficit, but CTK won the final two rounds to take the trophy, winning 46-36.
