And the winner is. . .

On the ball

By London Leprechaun

As we don't have a drum roll, the nearest we can get to those annoying pauses when announcing winners is to say that, after reecounts and independent verification, the winner of the Grand Spot the Ball competition is . . . . . . .

Diamond with a grand total of three correct answers.  We are also very pleased to say that all the entrants got at least one answer right.

The correct answers are: 

1. B3

2. C2

3. B2

4. C3

5. A5

6. B2/C2

7. D3

8. B3

9. D4

10. E3/E4

Where the ball was on the grid line in 6 and 10 we acceptd either answer

You can see the pictures with the ball reinstated here

Many of you were close with a lot of your guesses so well done all.  Hope you had some fun.  I am sure Kev will be in touch to announce the plans for the grand celebration.

Well done Diamond. A Minuscule prize is on its way to you once the season starts. Unless I manage to avoid you for the whole season.

Thank you Leprechaun for this excellent competition which was not easy but manageable.

My Lord's,Ladies and Gentlemen. Members of the MTWD massive etc, may I just thank the folk who set this up and Beefy you can stick your recount where the sun don't shine!

If we could wait till the spring for he open top bus ride from Baker Street to Lord's in celebration that would be super.

As for Kev you avoiding me next season we have far to many good away games not to meet up.

What a lovely speech Mr D....from the heart,I can imagine the tears were flowing and Mrs D had to hold you steady once you realised you had won.
Have the Cricket Paper been in contact for an interview and pictures yet?

Not yet Beefy mind you in a slow news week I half expect the call. Maybe they can use the rather fetching picture of me "resting my eyes" used on this thread.

There is a bitter sweet feeling about this. I can imagine him up there thinking well at least I have saved you having to fork out on a minuscule prize.

I think the miniscule prize can be a small trophy that is used each year.
The Diamond Spot the ball competition.
