Unfortunately the Britannia are unable to field a team this season, so your fixture against them will be a free week. We may be able to find a team to replace them and of course if we do you will be immediately informed.

The fixtures for the new season are now available on the Fixtures page, with each team's fixtures also being displayed on their team page.

AGM

The AGM of the Orrell and District Quiz League will take place at The Delph Tavern on Sunday 4th December at 8pm. Any delegate wishing to include a motion at the meeting must send it to me before 26th November

League Champions

As a result of beating The Cricketers and Doctor's Orders losing to Running Horses, The Delph Tavern have become league champions in their first season in the league.  Congratulations to you all!

Last Night's Quiz

As you may know last night’s questions failed to arrive at three venues. They were posted the week before, so yet again the postal service has let us down. Crucially the Running Horses, which receives the spare quiz, was one of those three so as a result two of the matches were postponed and will be played on September the 6th using last night’s quiz. Can I therefore ask you and your teams NOT to divulge any of the details of the quiz to anyone - the quiz will obviously not be posted on the website.
The postponed matches are :- Running Horses v Bryn Labour Club and Millstone v Merrymen

IT & Admin Officer

In recognition of all the work he does collating the results and league tables, The Committee have invited Chris Quinn to join us and he has accepted. His role is that of IT & Admin Officer

Paul McAteer has resigned as Chairman of the Orrell and District Quiz league. His resignation was accepted at tonight's Committee Meeting. John Winnard (Vice Chairman) is now acting Chairman.
