Back at the Plough this time to face the Horntails, sister team to last week’s opponents, the Taverners. the Lemmings once again enjoyed a warm welcome for the all-conferred quarter final of the Cup.
Question master duties were shared by Pat Jeater and Brian Bogie and it must be said that this was an outstanding double act and it would be good to see them sharing responsibilities in future Cup or Plate games – perhaps the finals? With light humour and an excellent balanced set of questions the game sped along interspersed with snippets of memory from all around the room. This really was a most enjoyable evening and will be long remembered.
The winner of each of the six rounds swung from team to team, scores being (home team first) 12/22 12/24 20/17 13/17 17/19 and 21/13 – final score 112 to 95 for the Lemmings.
The game was rounded off with a varied selection of sandwiches and general agreement that it had been a most enjoyable evening. Many thanks to the landlord (who came to wish us farewell as we left), the Horntails and especially to Pat and Brian.
