“Unbelievable Jeff!”

Football fans are in with a chance of winning £5k and meeting former player and cult hero Chris Kamara as part of a quiz competition being held at The Grove pub in WGC.

The pub is encouraging residents to tackle one of its footy-themed quizzes – which take place every Thursday.

It is part of a nationwide competition in which teams compete in local heats, with the winning teams going forward to the regional heats in May.

The winners will then go forward to the grand final on Saturday, June 2, in Nuneaton, which will be hosted by ‘Kammy’ himself.

But there will only be one team who will walk away with the £5,000 cash prize.

Nicholas Treacy, general manager at the Grove, said: “There’s a lot of love for the beautiful game here in Welwyn Garden City so I’ll be interested to see how well our guests perform in the quiz.

“We’re offering local teams the chance to win an unbelievable footy prize, so we’re confident places will fill up fast – we can’t wait to put our local football fans to the test!”

To take part in the Welwyn Garden City competition, locals simply need to visit The Grove with their team name and contact details. Terms and conditions can be found at www.greeneking-pubs.co.uk/football-2018/weekly-sports-quiz .
