Sunday Times Teaser 2534 – Fiftieth Anniversary

We have recently celebrated the 50th anniversary of the Teaser column. At the party for the setters they gave each letter of the alphabet a different number from 1 to 26 (eg they made A=7). Appropriately, this was done in such a way that, for each setter present, the values of the letters of their surname added up to 50. Angela Newing was there (so N+E+W+I+N+G=50), as were Nick MacKinnon and Hugh Bradley. Only two of Graham Smithers, Danny Roth, Andrew Skidmore, John Owen and Victor Bryant could make it.

Which two?
