The Really Tricky Sports Quiz Book


Two former members of staff at Staffordshire University have just published a sports quiz book with all profits going to two charities with local connections.

“The Really Tricky Sports Quiz Book” has been compiled by David Jenkins and Ian Starkie, based on questions that were devised for the Stone Cricket Club Sports Quiz between 2011 and 2014. The book has 70 rounds of 10 questions with each round being worth between 10 and 38 marks. In addition, there are 20 tables of sporting facts to be completed throughout the book. There are 13 different sports covered, although football and cricket have the lion’s share, and several thematic rounds, including decades, managers, geography, captains and birthdays!

All profits from the sale of the book will go to two charities:-

• Katharine House Hospice, based in mid Staffordshire

• Stroke Association

Support is being generated for these charities as Ian is a trustee of Katharine House Hospice and David Hawbrook, former Secretary of Stone Cricket Club, sadly died following a stroke in 2014.

“The Really Tricky Sports Quiz Book” costs £6.99 or £8.50 including p&p (UK) and is available from The Willows Publishing Co Ltd, 17 The Willows, Stone, Staffordshire ST15 0DE. Payment can be by cheque or directly into the bank. For further details contact:- David Jenkins at Tel 01785 814700 Ian Starkie at Tel 01889 271046
