Sandbaggers into McCoy’s final

A PORTSTEWART pub quiz team has qualified for the McCoy’s NI Pub Quiz final where it will compete later this month for a £1,000 cash prize.

The Sandbaggers, a team of six from the Portstewart area, competed at the local heat in the Anchor Bar to secure its place and will now travel to Belfast in a bid to win a tasty £1,000 and be crowned McCoy’s NI Pub Quiz 2011 champions.

McCoy’s Marketing Manager Andrew Baxter wishes the team well.

“I know the heat was a closely fought contest so I’d like to congratulate The Sandbaggers on getting this far and wish them well in the final, which is taking place later this month in Belfast’s Jude’s Bar. I suppose the key question now is… which region has produced the brainiest team?!” said Andrew.

As well as the £1,000 that’s up for grabs McCoy’s will donate a further £1,000 to the winning team’s chosen charity.
