Congratulations to the management team of the Bennetts whose late surge has secured them first place and £40 in the 2009 Fantasy League!
Some big scores from Peter himself, Libby Leadbitter and Ian Sobey have resulted in Team Chutney scoring a huge 110 points this week, although Wendy Sobey’s ‘Black Bears’ were only 14 points behind with one of the biggest scores of the week, 137. Dave Hughes’ ‘GMH Eleven’ has jumped into 3rd place and £10 with 124 points this week pushing Jane Chilvers’ ‘The Team with No Name’ into 4th place, their lowest position since the first week of the competition! At the bottom, wooden spoon goes to Keith Taylor’s ‘The Cheapest Team’ which was thoroughly deserved! Biggest mover and scorer of the week was Giles Roper’s ‘The Three Hopes’ who have jumped 23 places to 29th with 153 points, withbig scores from Peter Bennett, Steve Griffiths and Jonathan Pratt. Lowest score of the week was 17 from Tom Coppin’s ‘Chad’s Chariots’ who have gradually been sliding down the table and finish in 91st spot.
On the player front Tony Silman has pipped Ted Bennett at the last! (Ted, don’t worry, you only win chocolate for winning the players’ league – and the £40 will buy you a lot of chocolate!) Remember the Fledglings game counted double last weekend (as well as the Mens 3s), so Tony’s brace in the 6-3 win ends up being worth 32 points. The Fledglings fantastic season is reflected in the fact that 7 of the top ten player spots are occupied by Fledglings! Biggest mover of the week is Steve Griffiths, whose brace and MOM award in the Falcons 6-1 win earned him 25 points.
So aside from cash prizes for the top three team managers, prizes are awarded as follows:
Highest points/price: Rob Dunnill – 63.5 points per pound
Most points: Tony Silman 214 points
Most points in a single game: Ted Bennett - 54 points
So that concludes the Fantasy League 2009! More stats will follow in subsequent newsletters, such as the “Dream Team” – what was the best possible ‘legal’ combination of players…were you in it?
