MQL Pairs

The 2023 edition of the MQL Pairs was held at Prescot Cables FC hosted by the Ormskirk League. Eleven of the 32 players were from Ormskirk.

Unfortunately none of these players were in the six pairs that qualified for the semi finals.

However all three pairs in the Plate Final contained an Ormskirk player, David Hodgson (Rugby Hounds) with Cliff Houghton (Warrington), Sue Perks (Delph Tavern) with Chris Quinn (Liverpool) and Bill Gerrard (Turks Head Sinners) with Mark Kerr (Liverpool). Well done to Bill and Mark who were the winners.
