I reckon this should be an annual event, like the Derby or Grand National……I could think of a couple of vergers I’d put an each way bet on. We could use a different Cathedral each year, that way some years would favour those who whilst slower, have greater stamina, whilst in other years (St Asaph?) those designed for a sprint finish would triumph.  Perhaps we could create a Vergers Olympics? synchronised key rattling during Evensong, the chair stack marathon (no contest Liverpool would win by default), stage assembly krypton factor, and not forgetting the 100 yard front crawl to replace the Bishop’s radio mic……Something for the events team to get their teeth into!!
