Facing female opponents

Post by L'oisleatch McGraw » Fri Sep 29, 2017 3:55 pm

Looking through some of the Series 77 matches, I noticed an interesting stat for one-time winner Steve Anderson...
He beat Nikki then lost to Sarah, meaning he only ever faced female opponents.

Considering the overarching male-domination in all things Countdown, I wonder just how small the "Blessed Art Thou Amongst Women" club is...
How many CD winners have only faced female opponents?

I've played 5 games on screen, and my 3 wins were against female opponents (Lucy Guile in my special and Karyn Cooke and Louise Bambury in Series 60), and my 2 losses were against male opponents (Ian Buckley in Series 49 and Patrick McCurdie in Series 60).

I'd just like to have one more go at beating a bloke really!! :P :P ;) :) :D 8-)
UP THE MIGHTY TERRIERS!!! ;) :) :D :mrgreen: 8-)
