The Bumper Argyle Summer Quiz - Part One

IT is time again to test your Argyle knowledge and powers of recall as we play the 2014 Bumper Argyle Summer Quiz.

Between now and Saturday we will be posting two rounds each day, each with a different Argyle-related theme. At the end of the week, after you have had a go at all ten rounds, please send us your answers to

Please do not send sets of answers daily; we will only accept complete answers from Saturday onwards. Closing date for entry is 5pm on Friday, July 4, 2014. The winner will be the entrant with the most correct answers. In the event of a tie, one of the highest scorers will be selected at random as overall winner.

The prize, as always, is our patented 'Box of Stuff'. The Box of Stuff is the upshot of the annual tidy-up of the Communications Office, which yields all manner of Argyle goodies. This year's Box of Stuff includes (but is not limited to) signed t-shirts; match DVDs; an Argyle tie; a pinball-style football toy; and an Elton John 'Rocket Man' programme from his Home Park concert. That could be worth some money one day - but we think it's gonna be a long, long time. 

Look how happy our intern Charlie was to even lay his hands on such a prestigious miscellany of items.
