The Pink Lion acted as venue to a truly unique pub quiz last night. Matt Dawson and Josh Lewsey were quiz masters to a host of British sporting legends for the evening.

Matt Dawson heroically gave up his 40th birthday celebrations to host the ultimate pub sports quiz last night (though he made up for it later…!).

Lions legend Richard Hill, Channel 4 racing star Lesley Graham, World boxing champion Chris Eubank and cricketer Ed Smith all battled it out in their respective teams for first place. The Guests munched on a special pub menu, designed by Phil Vickery, of scotch eggs, pork pies with piccalilli and pork sausage rolls.

Sky Sports presenter Alex Payne squared off with the two quiz masters over what minute Johnny Wilkinson scored the winning drop goal in the 2003 World Cup, but to no avail. After lots of questions, several pork pies and way too many PINK ales Tom Voyce’s team emerged victorious.

The evening’s festivities were rounded off with a large chocolate birthday cake for the man himself, Matt Dawson. Happy Birthday Matt!
