York City Quiz 2005


Congratulations to Andy Naylor, our 2005 York City quiz king. Try the quiz now and see if you can beat Andy’s 26 out of 36. It was a close fought affair with Andy just pipping Alastair Smith and David Ward. Ray Goodearl was a close fourth. The other pre event favourite, Ben failed to shine, never overcoming his 10 point penalty for being skint. The rest of the field was nowhere to be seen.
