The highly-anticipated Spens
Trophy final, held in Silk Hall on the evening of Thursday November 5th, was
yet again a fulfilling end to a Herculean competition. This year’s final
consisted of last year’s victors, K Social, who were up against C Social.
The opening rounds were very
close, with both teams trading blows; K took the lead early on, swiftly moving
one hundred points ahead. However, C Social were not to be defeated easily and
managed to get back into the competition - levelling the scores.
Yet K, once again,
pulled ahead; this time putting a lead of two hundred points between
themselves and C. From then on, K closed the competition out and won by 310
points (660 - 350).
The Warden rounded off this
year’s tournament with a brief speech, which was followed by the presentation
of the trophy to the winning K Social Team: James Mocatta, Harry McGrath, Jamie Walker and Tom Binks.
Special thanks must go to Mr Tolputt, the Question-master Charlie Rothbarth and
Time-keeper Felix Barbour for putting on such a special Competition.
