Phil Duffy

It is with great sadness that we have to announce the death of well known Ormskirk League player Phil Duffy.

Phil, who has been ill for some time, was quizzing until very recently as a member of current Division 1 champions Unison.

Phil joined the Ormskirk League when his team moved from the Warrington League, having previously played in the Liverpool League.

Under the guises of Carr Mill, Top Nogs and Unison they were never out of the top two, winning the title on four occasions.

Phil won the MIMIR Trophy in 2004, having won it previously in 1997. He was a regular in the Ormskirk final, winning in 2008.

He represented Ormskirk in the Presidents' Trophy on many occasions contributing much to the Ormskirk success in recent years.

A willing traveller around the country to take part in quizzes, he appeared on many TV and radio shows, including winning ITV's 'The Chase' shown below.

A nice man and a superb quizzer, he will be sorely missed.
