"Sir" Geoffrey was chosen as a specialist subject by a contestant on Mastermind on Friday night. He scored 8 correct answers.
The TMS team then decided it would be fun to pose the same set of questions (plus one or two fun extras) to the great man himself. So Jonathan Agnew acted as question master and Boycs duly managed to out score the guy on Mastermind.
And he added one or two interesting nuggets to his answers. For instance, when confirming that he'd played football at under 18 level for Leeds United he named one of his team mates. Billy Bremner. And he thought the surname of Doug Insole (who dropped him from the England Test side for slow scoring) could more appropriately begin with an A.
But to me the most amusing part of it was the question from the programme that Aggers chickened out of asking him.
The Mastermind contestant was the first in the programme to be summoned to the black chair, so if you watch the first few minutes on iplayer you should very easily spot the non-cricket question that Aggers thought a bit of a sticky wicket.
