In the first match back in division 2 of the SAL at Finsbury Park, a slightly weaker team than had gained promotion last year finished fourth behind hosts London Heathside, Victoria Park and Tower Hamlets and Brighton&Hove.

Club team wins Haslers quiz

Haslers, the Loughton-based chartered accounts company, have been very supportive sponsors of the Roding Valley Half Marathon over the years, so the club was keen to support their charity quiz last Thursday.

Bright sparks! Our quiz winners with their hamper of chocolate

The team comprised David “Evil” Hollingworth, Cowsi Magol with their respective Christine wives, former University Challenge champion Harold “Warwick” Wyber, plus a few friends. The team scored particularly well on the “Sporting Venues” round, even though the mighty Ashton Playing Fields did not feature on this occasion. By the end the other teams, consisting of many of Haslers' clients, and including a frightening number of solicitors and wealth managers, had been put in their place. The photo shows the team with the winners' trophy, which is nearly as prestigious as the coveted “Egg Box Trophy” awarded at the club’s Music Quiz, which sadly won’t be featuring the “Evil” team this year due to holiday commitments.
