Harry's Notes

Finals Night

The above event took place on Monday, 20th May at the Birdseye Club in Ladysmith Road, Grimsby when the Trophies were presented by Terry Donovan, who played soccer for Grimsby Town, Aston Villa, Burnley and Rotherham United and also represented the Republic of Ireland on two occasions. The son of the late Town legend, Don, he is also the father of TV personality Keeley.

First up was the Team Knockout Handicap Final between Bux Kwiz and perennial champions Nemesis and the latter foursome saw off their Division 1 foes 97-78 despite giving Bux a start of 15. Nemesis have arguably the best player in the League in Alan Bentley and he displayed his usual brilliance to stand out in a great side. Dad's Army and Rasen posed the questions jointly at very short notice to the great appreciation of the Committee.

After a buffet supper, the Individual Shield was contested between the two Ian's, Townsend and Welham and the latter retained his Title by 13-10. Appropriately, the trophy is named after Ian's late mother, Gwyneth Welham, who was the oldest person to compete in TV's "Mastermind" at 86. Ian has also sat in the famous black chair! Questions were posed by Harry Buck.

The Individual Open Final followed between Andy Alcock and another "Mastermind" contestant, pride of Market Rasen, Lawrence Cook. The first 15 failed to separate the 2 men at 12-12 but an extra 5 saw Andy take the spoils by 2-0. Questions were asked by yet another "Mastermind" entrant, Andrew Hunter.

The last Final of the evening, the Pairs Handicap, was a clash between Ian Townsend and Mick Cavanagh of Surplus Rowdies and Pete Gardner and Dennis Brown of Nemesis. It was always pretty close but a late surge by the Surplus Rowdies duo saw them home by 28-25 to retain their Title. Questions were asked by League Chairman Malcolm Towle.
