Gone but not forgotten - Michelle Bradley


Michelle Bradley - Michelle was born in Halifax. After training as a teacher, she taught in London. On returning to Yorkshire, she and her mum, Ann, were introduced to the Five Towns Quiz League by Geoff Swain, and in the 2006/7 season Michelle played for the Grove Gladiators. She joined my Off-the-Rails team in 2011 and the following season became one of my Leading Ladies. She came from a great family - her mum, her sister Juliet, and her niece Darryl all played for our team.  Michelle was one of those people I liked immediately and we got on really well. We laughed a lot and had plenty of things in common (especially a love of films) but most of all she was also an excellent quizzer and a great asset to our team. She really loved quizzing with the FTQL and looked forward to League games and event nights equally. There wasn’t a team she didn’t like, but playing against the Little ‘Un was definitely one of her highlights. Another was when Off-The-Rails won the Handicap Cup against the Flanagan’s New Dudes in 2012. Unfortunately, Michelle was unable to play last season due to health problems. When I visited her in hospital I would always take some FTQL questions to try, which she really looked forward to. The ladies of our team will miss her very much and she will always be a Leading Lady.
