Two-Ten Communications’ pub quiz reached its grand final stage last
week. After six gruelling heats and one semi-final, London-based fashion
PR specialists Caroline Neville Associates locked horns with hi-tech
agency Brodeur A Plus.
Caroline Neville emerged triumphant after leading the gruelling 10-round
contest throughout. Brodeur came close on a couple of occasions only for
Caroline Neville’s team of Karen Bennett, Alison Spiller, Dominic
McCarthy, Claire Butler and veteran skipper Maurice McCarthy to pull
ahead and win 60 points to 55.
Maurice McCarthy is pictured receiving the coveted tankard, which was
soon to be filled with champagne, from Two-Ten MD Clive Marshall, who
was also celebrating his 40th birthday.
Celebrating victory, team member Bennett tells me: ’We’ll defend our
title next year but our next challenge is the softball competition this
summer. We’re sporty and brainy.’
Doing his best impression of a well paid football manager Brodeur’s
Jonathan Simnett told me after the match: ’The best team won, but we’re
taking it one step at a time. Last year we reached the semi, this year
Next year we’ll win it.’
Fighting talk indeed.
