Sunday Times Teaser 2725 – Darts Match
by Graham Smithers
Five teams of four players each entered a darts competition, the names of the twenty players being: Andrew, Alexander, Austin, Anthony, Benjamin, Charles, Christopher, Elijah, Jacob, Jayden, Jackson, James, Jason, Mason, Michael, Nathan, Newman, Robert, Samuel and William. With the names of those in each team arranged alphabetically, the first was the captain and the last was the reserve.
The teams were such that the names of any two players in a team shared just two letters in common (but these might occur more than once in a name).
With the teams ordered alphabetically by their captain’s names what were the names of their reserves?
