Gone but not forgotten - Linda Yelland

yelland1.gif

Linda Yelland - Linda played for the Redhill Hotel quiz team, captained by our former Committee member Brenda Clayforth, in their Division Two Championship season of 1994-95.  She was a virtual ever-present in that side, before sadly succumbing to cancer in 1997.

The Five Towns Quiz League was privileged to be given permission to send a wreath to Linda's funeral and for the 1997-98 season, when the Carlsberg Tetley Handicap Cup was introduced we were very pleased to give the new cup the name "The Linda Yelland Trophy", the final of which was played every year at Castleford Anglers for many years but now passes around the member venues.  The trophy was presented to the winning team for the first three of its years by Linda's husband Paul.
