For reasons which are a bit flimsy, this week's quiz is focused on football clubs by the coast.  Here’s hoping you do as well with these questions as the new Pompey co-owner coped with a few gentle posers at his unveiling last week...

1) Why is Portsmouth's nickname Pompey?

2) Who was Portsmouth’s first goalkeeper

6) Which South Humberside club knocked Spurs out of the Carling Cup this season?

7) Steve Bull is famed as being Wolves goalscoring hero during the 1980s. But who was his less-heralded strike-partner for most of that period? (Clue and tenuous link to the seaside theme: he began and finished his career with Southport).
