It was a surprisingly calm and mild October evening.
The room was prepped, the scorers primed, the chips were gentling frying, and nothing gave warning for the epic battle that was about to ensue.
The Forces2Canaries team was ready to complete their hattrick, but, alas for them, and like Pukki from the penalty spot against the Blades, alas for us all, they just missed out on the acclaim and glory, finishing in third place behind Trust us and The Extratimers.
A tiebreak question it was, as has become custom in recent times, the tension was palpable, the drama akin to waiting for a Mario Vrancic injury-time free-kick. A bead of sweat trickled down the brow of the croaky-voiced quiz master Michael Bailey as he read the question, the magnitude of the occasion clearly not lost on him.
Teemu Pukki has recently become the fifth all-time goal-scorer for Norwich City, but can you name the number of goals scored in total by the top five?
The answers were in, the audience waited silent, holding their breath.
Then boom, the Extratimers smashed the ball into the back of the net to take the spoils.
Congratulations to them, commiserations to Trust Us, and thanks to all for taking part in another fantastically fun and worthwhile evening where a superb amount of cash was raised for the Community Sports Foundation. As the video at the beginning of the night showed, it does make a real difference to disabled and disadvantaged people in our community, you can see the video below:
A special mention goes out to the NCFC Bookkeepers for claiming the wooden spoon too.
