As we head into the yuletide celebrations and look forward to 2011, Vital Wycombe's very own statto, Benny, brings you a Wycombe Wanderers themed quiz, based on BBC4's brain-busting Only Connect.
Sadly we couldn't afford the services of the delightful Victoria Coren but we can offer you the opportunity to win a very special surprise prize. Send in your answers to email@example.com
Those of you who are regular watchers of Only Connect will know that it is a fiendishly difficult and very pedantic quiz and we make no apologies for following their slightly pretentious rules. This quiz will sort out the wheat from the chaff. This is more than just Basic Wycombe Knowledge. Even Kevin Betsy would struggle with this one!
Rounds one, two and four have a total of 12 points and round three has a total of 10 points, so the nearest to the maximum of 46 points will be victorious. So get ready, gird your loins, here we go...
Round one - The connecting round.
(What is the connection between these four clues? - 2 points for each correct answer)
Round two - the sequence round
(What is the last clue in the sequence? 1 point for each correct answer and 1 point for the connection)
A: Cousins 93
B: Crossley 94
C: Parkin 96
A: Colchester United
B: Lincoln City
C: Wigan Athletic
B: Slough Town
A: Walthamstow Avenue
B: Boston United
C: Leek Town
Round three - The Connecting Wall.
(Sort the sixteen clues into four groups of four - 1 point for each correct group and 1 point for each correct connection, 2 bonus points for getting it all right)
Ashford - Enfield - Bressington - Histon
Brown - Everton - Carroll - Cheltenham
Dawber - Southport - Perrin - Brentford
Langford - Tamworth - Cousins - Reading
Round four - Double connections
(What are the the two things that connect these four clues? - 1 point for each connection and a bonus point for getting both)
C: Southend United
The deadline for answers is Friday 7th January 2011 at 11.59pm.
