Conkers at dawn

ConkersToday brings one of the great occasions in City life ­ the Taylor’s Port/PwC conker cup. Taking place at the Great Eastern Hotel, and organised by Lovell’s, the competition was first held last year.

TS understands that Chris Dickson, of JDS fame, will be taking part again this year. Dickson was disqualified last year after stamping on his opponent’s conker, so let’s hope he plays a little fairer this time.

TS would be keen to see some of the JDS’s targets in evidence. Will Deloitte chairman Martin Scicluna, currently facing the rap over Capital Corporation, take part? Or perhaps there will be a team from E&Y, still in the JDS’ sight over Equitable? Well, it beats a public hearing.
