takes the form of a Spot the Ball Competition with thanks to Darren for the idea and apolgies for the quaiity of some of the pictures.
Please click on this link to find your gift awaits you in the form of eight pictures. Use your skill, memory and cricket knowledge to work out where the ball has ended up in each picture. Send your answers - a grid reference for each picture - to the London Leprechaun by private message ONLY. This means the other moderators can also enter. Entry any other way will not count!
Enter as many times as you want, with the closing date early January.
The deadline has been extended a week. We have had a number of entries and spotting the ball has not been easy. You will not need a high score to win. A reminder you can submit as many entries as you like.
One LP (no not that one) of my youth claimed to be the first half of a recording of a live show. If (the liner notes said) you carefully scraped off the surface of the vinyl you would then be able to play the second half.
It was National Lampoon's album Lemmings, all about the Woodshock festival. Easily the funniest thing they ever did as a collective, I think.
Thanks everyone for having a go at this fiendish quiz. Many of you were very close to the right squares but there is a winner! So with a grand total of one correct answer the winner is JW! Congratulations and Kev will be in touch re the awards ceremony.
The answers were:
8 A6/A7 (would have accepted either)

Top mark 1? It really would have been worth putting in an entry of complete guesswork!
This was all a bit of fun but it reminds me of a maths exam at school when half the pupils got zero out of 200. Top mark was well under a hundred. The exam had been said by the Head of Department and it was painfully obvious that he had set it at a ridiculously high level either to show how clever he was or to show up our teacher, neither of which were good motives. The result was that most of the class lost all interest in the subject as it was clearly only for those as clever as the Head of Department. It was a grammar school too so for any reasonable test the majority of the class should not have been struggling.
