County had just posted an emphatic victory in dispatching Curzon Ashton 3-1 at Edgeley Park, when a goodly number of the 3495 headed off to Stockport’s top night spot the Spinning Top for the latest round of the Supporters Cooperative’s `County Quiz’, in support of the Guardian Account.
The early activity seemed to centre around getting a pint of `County Co-Hop’ a really excellent real ale, but it was not long before genial Quizmaster, and Cooperative Board Member, Nick Lee called for order and signalled we were about to start.
Eight teams signed up, which was a really great response.
Early favourites Coop Elite drew booing from the other teams by preparing to make their victory bow before proceedings started. Yellowboard again fielded a team, whilst the surprise entry came from top band `Mutha Luvin Chimps’ who took time out before their sound check to support the event.
The questions were set at a very reasonable level….hard…but not eye wateringly so, and the end result was an enjoyable experience and a tight run thing to decide the winners.
Here is how they finished….
1. Coop Elite 98
2. Yellowboard 96
3. Mutha Luvin Chimps 94
4. Hedgies Heroes 93
5. We’re Only Here for the Beer 91
6. #We Go Again 85
7. Last Orders 79
8. Who Are We? 77
Later, Supporters Coop Events Manager Dave Marchbank announced the event had raised circa £300 for the Guardian Account, helped by Spinning Top landlord Mike Swann extending the 10% donation beyond the 8pm cut off.
And here are the teams as they were before the off …
Here’s to the next one !
