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 Ormskirk Division 1 champions Unison.

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

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

Phil won the MIMIR Trophy in 2004, having won it previously in 1997.

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

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

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



Phil's funeral was on Tuesday 25th September at St Anne (& Blessed Dominic) RC Church, St Helens, Donations in memory of Phil can be made to Willowbrook Hospice
