Walls Wins QUB April Blitz

Out of term time though it was, Tuesday April 7th saw the Students’ Union play host to a full house. Maximo Park did their part - drawing crowds into the Mandela Hall – but the main event was taking place next door in the building’s basement, where Bar Sub was the venue for the QUB April Blitz.

The great turnout, unique atmosphere, high number of new faces and fierce competition made for bar blitz at it’s best. Top seeds Steve Scannell and John Cairns may have started favourites, but it was QUB Theology student Eamonn Walls who emerged as the winner after a tense playoff win against Mark Newman.
