Interesting quiz, but Swansea isn't really a county and you have Birmingham too close to the Welsh Border...

Surely the "Football Towns" are all just cities anyway?

And all the 'cities' listed also have one or more major football team. It seems to be completely random which category each place has been assigned to.

It's *Lough* Neagh. Also, not sure about Cardiff being a football town (ahead of Birmingham and especially Glasgow and London), and Leicester are a bit of a one-year wonder.

Might also want to accept Kernow for Cornwall and Ynys Mon (I think) for Anglesey.

But good quiz - nice mix of easy and not-so-easy

Birmingham is in the wrong place. It should be a little south of Leicester, and closer than halfway from Leicester to the Welsh border. What you have on there is more like where Shrewsbury is.

Good quiz thanks. Agree with comments above re Birmingham and also use of the term football TOWNS is a bit deceptive as they are all cities (I wasted a bit of time until I realised what you had done)...but, again, thanks for a good quiz.
