    Well, I could extend the deadline, I'spose. Make it 1.30pm Wednesday instead. That'll give me time to devise another one! ;-)

    Apologies folks! Question 3 is a misprunt. Instead of 'Against' which team did Peter Shilton make his 1000th league appearance, it should have read FOR which current Nationwide League Division 3 team did he make his 1000th league appearance!

    D'oh! again!

    Edit: I've changed it for you, Dave! Dyl.
