Circle Club Quiz Ring Uncovered!

Published on January 7th 2005.


**Warning: This article contains significant elements of bad sportsmanship
The shocking face of the Manchester underworld was uncovered this week as The Circle Club in Manchester handed the title of quiz winners to ‘one of their own’.

SCRAP! Scenes in the Circle Club turn nasty.
The fortnightly quiz started brightly, but the ‘Inner Circle’ (note the name, there’s a double meaning there) team came back to recover a huge deficit going into the last round to defeat favourites and Manchester Confidential team ‘Horton’s Heroes’.
CHEATING
The ‘winners’, including that well known sex maniac Flic Evert, were spotted reading newspapers at the table during the Current Affairs round. They proceeded to embezzle £100 of the club’s own cash, as well as drinking their own profits via a bottle of champagne, right in the faces of their defeated opponents.
HOSPITAL
Not only that, but the ‘Heroes’ team were initially told they had won. Having begun celebrating a victory that appeared assured, Horton’s Heroes team captain Mark Garner ended up in hospital.
Reporting from his hospital bed, Garner said: “It’s a stitch up. A fix. They told us we’d won in a blatant bid to wind us up. I nearly fell through the floor."

ANGER! Garner retaliates
Garner is now suffering from a sore head brought on by the taxing Brain Teasers round and heart palpitations brought on from thinking he had won. He does, however, intend to return to the next quiz with a vengeance.
“I’ll be going back, no doubt about it. This time we mean business, we’ll be taking the heavies. This isn’t the last that quiz has seen of Horton’s Heroes” said Garner.
Scenes of celebration from the Horton corner soon turned to despair, and deep rooted anger, as the result dawned on the clientele.
FIX
Cries of “Fix” came from every quarter of the club as the atmosphere threatened to turn nasty. Luckily, chairs are nailed to the floor in the exclusive members club, otherwise, bloodshed would have been on the cards.
Undeterred, team captain for the ‘Inner Circle’ Simon Buckley of 'PR' company Cheating Tadpoles, strode through flying fists and beer bottles to collect the winning prize.
“I’ll never go back”, exclaimed disgruntled Manchester Confidential’s Andy Mullett.
