OLDE TAVERNERS WIN KNOCKOUT CUP IN A BLAZE OF GLORY
 
Finals' Night 2019 was set alight by Olde Taverners rolling back fourteen years domination of the Knockout Cup competition by Wanderers, Top House Officials and Flanagan's Army to win the Knockout Cup by a score of 70 points to 68.  Earlier in the evening the Mosquitoes won the Vulcan derby to defeat rivals Bombers and lift the Plate by 71 to 58.  Finals' Night was joined by special guest Steve Cooke from BBC's Eggheads quiz programme, who presented the trophies for the season and gave a humorous five minute monologue.

G-Fivers win Handicap Cup with three players!
 
The Handicap Cup Final was won by the G-Fivers of George V WMC in Glasshoughton, Castleford, when they defeated Kippax British Legion by a score of 101 points to 97 (including the starting handicaps of 28 to G-Fivers and 36 to Kippax - 8 point start to Kippax) to win the Handicap trophy that they have won twice before, in 2006 and 2013.
 
The match started at 8 points start to Kippax and was close all the way through, with Kippax taking a lead in the first half of the quiz but G-Fivers slowly pulled that back and after Round 7 the match was tied at 79-79.  G-Fivers then won two of the last three rounds to win the cup by the narrow margin of 4 points, by 101 to 97.  But the remarkable aspect of this win was that they did it with the less than full complement of players, having three instead of four!
 
The now traditional Pairs Competition was set by Neil Aspland again and this year's winning pair was Michael Steer and Liz Clapham, both of Olde Taverners.
 
Olde Taverners will now meet Flanagan's Army in the Knockout Cup Final at next week's major Finals' Night at the George V WMC whilst Vulcan Bombers will take on Vulcan Mosquitoes in the Plate Knockout competition.
