BRAINboxes from the Green Man in Royston have come fourth in a national pub quiz.

The Greengos - Liam Smith, Ben Weekes, Andy Reno, and Stephen Willis - were one of 35 teams to make it through the national finals of the competition, which was open to 9,000 pubs in the Punch chain.

They narrowly missed out on a top three finish, and the accompanying big money prizes, but still received consolation prize money which more than covered their expenses.

Team captain Liam Smith said: "It was a great day out and very well organised - we'll be back next year to try to win it."
