Charity Quiz

Many thanks to all who came along and took part in this year's Charity Quiz at Christ the King Club. 

Congratulations to the Aigburth Swans/Oxton Cons team who won the trophy.

Particular thanks as ever to Brian Thompson for setting a challenging and enjoyable quiz, and to Keith Clare, Dave Cotson and Jim Martin who ensured the evening went smoothly.

It was a thoroughly pleasant evening, and more than £400 was raised for Diabetes UK.

MATT SHORE

We have been informed that at Matt’s own request there is to be no formal funeral service.  It is hoped that there will be an opportunity to get together in his memory at some point in the near future.

Sad News - Matt Shore of The Old Bangers

We are sad to have to report the sudden death of Matt Shore of the Old Bangers.  Matt died at home on Tuesday 8th January, having played the previous evening in an away victory over the Bishop Eton team.
