ON WEDNESDAY April 26, a team of six dedicated quizzers from the Coin branch of the Royal British Legion travelled to Loja to try and regain the coveted Michael Taylor Trophy.
Michael and his wife Jo, now Chairman of the Coin branch, bought the trophy many years ago and offered it as a prize for the Spain South Annual Quiz. Loja managed to win the trophy from Coin three years ago and every year Coin has tried to win it back but failed narrowly each time – except this year.
Against strong opposition from Loja, Torre del Mar, Molina and Mijas Costa, the Coin A team claimed an outstanding victory seven points clear of the field.
Congratulations go to team captain Russel together with Heather, Frances, Bob, Rayah and Perry.
Coin also fielded a B team to run interference for the A team and they came a creditable second just three points behind the winners of the B group.
The challenge is on; can Coin retain the trophy in 2018?
