All the answers relate to things that happened to Middlesex or Middlesex players in 2018 and they all read grammatically. Please send your answers to  DO NOT post them on this thread.  Though feel free to tell others how easy or hard you found it! Happy qiuizzing.  1MP will be given to the winning entry sometime in the New Year.

I think the standard of my football at college was once described as diltoid. Though one of the letters might have been different.

Apologies if any has got to number 13! There was a letter missing. Now corrected in the list.

Not dissimilar to the missing vowels round in Only Connect.

Couldn't get 5, 9 or 14.

A few good entries so far. We'll be closing the competition sometime next weekend so get thinking. Multiple entries are acceptable. As long as the answers fit, are correct and make grammatical sense we will accept alternative words to the ones we had in mind.
Put your thinking caps on and Happy New Year.

The competition will remain open till this weekend. It is worth a punt even if you not 100% sure of some of them. We will not be too strict with exact wording.

Final call for entries. We will have a winner sometime this weekend.
We would also love to know what you thought of the quiz. Too hard, too easy or not interesting enough?
Any ideas for future Christmas and New year challenges?
