Shola Eclipse take quiz honours

Shola Eclipse won the Pat Ball Trophy at the FoGR Third Annual Quiz Night on Friday. They beat Cropston Cricket Club, the winners in the first two years, by just one point - 124 to 123 - in a very exciting finish.

The Shola Eclipse team was made up of Colin Hall (captain), Colin Richards and John and Christine Daniel. Colin Hall is a Member of Leicestershire CCC and was formerly a Leicester City Councillor and Lord Mayor of Leicester.

John Daniel is an avid Notts County fan and, thereby hangs the tale of the naming of the team as Shola Eclipse. It is named in honour of Shola Ameobi, a striker currently playing for Notts County, but who has recently been inducted into Newcastle United’s Hall of Fame.

The Friends of Grace Road would like to thank everybody for making the night a success, especially Roger and Rosemary Stead for their hard work in compiling another challenging and enjoyable set of questions.
