I am setting 2 puzzles for our local newsletter, one on bird names and
the other on football team names. Have been given the question sheets,
each have twenty questions and I am stuck for a few answers. Can you
suggest please?:
(a) Bird names: (example - "Angry William" answer: "Crossbill") Can
you suggest answers for these clues:
Cider = scrumpy?
Non alcoholic lager = ?
A blind drug = ?
(b) Football Teams (example: "Male Meadow" = "Mansfield")
Complete joint of bacon = ??ham
Detectives need them = ?
Where you send an enemy = ?
Not an Eastern Dish = ?
A naked candle light = ??wick
Vehicle surrounded by water = ??pool

Dear roypeacock-ga 
These are my suggestions.

Cider = Woodpecker   - brand name 

Non alcoholic lager =  Swan ? brand name, see

A blind drug = Heron  - Heroin without any Is (eyes)

Complete joint of bacon = Fulham  - Full Ham
Detectives need them = Leeds  - Leads
Where you send an enemy = Coventry  - Send someone to Coventry 
Not an Eastern Dish = West Ham 
A naked candle light = Berwick  - Bare wick 

The only one I have struggled with is the last one. Some of your
questions appear in a quiz format on these pages. Both give the answer
to : Vehicle surrounded by water = as Carlisle. Personally  I?m not
entirely convinces by this answer.

I hope this answers your question. If it does not, or the answer is
unclear, then please ask for clarification of this research before
rating the answer. I shall respond to the clarification request as
soon as I receive it.
Thank you

Thanks for your help - can't think of a better answer than Carlisle,
but there might be one! Very nice to have the links you gave, might
use some of those in another newsletter edition. Regards, Roy Peacock
