Robin McIntosh

It is with great sadness that I report the passing of Robin McIntosh over the weekend.

A proud Manxman, he had been receiving treatment for cancer in recent years and died in hospital in Warrington.

He played in the early years of the Ormskirk League at the Railway Tavern in Hoscar.

In 1980 Red Lion (Newburgh) joined the League, becoming Newburgh Lions the following year.

In recent years Robin took the post of Results Secretary producing a detailed statistical analysis of all matches and compiling the highlights for this site.

Robin is in seat three of the team on the left in this photograph.

The words of Joe O'Connor are a fine tribute - "We all knew him of course, some of us for over forty years. We shall miss him as a doughty competitor always striving to win, but more as an old friend ready to talk and to help".

Robin's funeral will be held on Friday January 3rd. The service is at 2pm at Charnock Richard  crematorium, followed by a celebration of Robin's life at 3.00pm at Christ Church Newburgh, then refreshments at the Red LIon.  Family flowers only, but donations welcome to Douglas Valley Lions, a cause for whom Robin worked tirelessly.

Individual Averages

Robin McIntosh has analysed the score sheets for the first half of the season and produced tables of average scores for the leading players in both divsions.

Darren Martin leads the 1st division with an average score of 19.64 points. Pat Gibson has answered 6.89 of his own questions per match.

Jim Maloney leads both categories in the 2nd division averaging 17.29 and answering 4.43 of his own questions.

Week 8 Highlights


Division 1. The top two made light of a difficult Monday set, Old Dog thrashing Squigglers with Pat Gibson registering 20 points, and Unison overcoming Ormskirk Tennis Club with Darren Martin also scoring 20.  In closer matches there were wins for Greyhound, Wheatsheaf and Rugby Hounds. On the Tuesday set an all-round team performance saw Colly Wobblers home against Gang of Four.
 
Division 2. In the clash of the top 2, Newburgh Lions pulled away over the last couple of rounds to defeat Abbey Saints. Whippet won a close encounter with Red Lion (Burscough), with Bob Edge for Whippet and Steve Garrett for Red Lion both scoring 19 points. Ormskirk Theatre Company recorded their second win of the season beating Ormskirk Farmers who remain at the bottom.
