Week Eleven

In Week eleven of the competition we had our second Rollover of our 35th Season worth £12 and that was won on our highest score of the season with 17 goals. It was CHRIS BOOM who picked up that fantastic score but he was just two goals sort of picking up the Beat the Score Jackpot of another £65 cash. Chris also becomes the first player to win twice this season as he had to share the cash in week seven. So a great season for Chris already as he picks up his highest score and his highest position of the season.
Chris started with Golden Goals back in our 2008/09 Season on where he finished in 31st place on 262 goals. Last season he finished in 90th place on 270 goals. His best team for this season is Peterhead scoring 32 of his total of 93 goals.

CELTIC 1, MANCHESTER CITY 7, PETERHEAD 9

100 MIDWEEK GOALS JACKPOT
Only twelve of us managed to pick up any midweek goals but it was ZIGGY (John Wood) that picked up the highest amount of goals with four. They came from Rangers 3 and Stenhousemuir 1 taking his midweek total to 25 goals. His third team is Scunthorpe. So the race for the cash has remained as the same as last weeks leaders once again.
In first place we have RICKY WOOD with 36 goals. In joint second place both on 35 goals we have PHIL FRANCKSEN and CHRIS SETFORD. In third place we have TONY GUY (2) and JULIE SOMERVILLE on 34 goals. With 33 goals in joint fourth place we have SIMON DICKINSON, MATT DORAN, GRAHAM PHILLIPS, DAVE WOOD and back in then race TONY KING.  

WEEKEND RESULTS
This weekend the average score was just 4 goals which is a great surprise. All but three of you picked up some goals and we had some really highest scores this weekend. The reason for such a low average score is that eighteen of our teams failed to score any goals.
The highest score that we had over the weekend came from the Scottish WILLIAM HILL CUP Second Round where PETERHEAD won 9-0  at home to non-league team Colville Park. With their highest score to date and for us this season, Peterhead are now on a total of 32 goals and they have just one vote.
Peterhead started with Golden Goals in the 2005/06 Season where they were voted in as our 32nd Scottish team. They finished on a score of 63 goals which is their highest score to date. Peterhead are in their third season with us and last season they finished on a total of 58 goals. They have now scored a total of 153 goals which gives them an average score of 50 goals per season to date.

Week Ten

We are half way through the first half of the season in Week ten of the competition. We did not have many of our teams in action this week all due to the World Cup Qualifying Rounds. So we will have our second Rollover of our 35th Season worth £12 next weekend.

100 MIDWEEK GOALS JACKPOT
As we did not have any midweek games at all this week, the race for the cash has remained the same as last weeks leaders.
In first place we have RICKY WOOD with 36 goals. In joint second place both on 35 goals we have PHIL FRANCKSEN and CHRIS SETFORD. In third place we have TONY GUY (2) and JULIE SOMERVILLE on 34 goals. With 33 goals in joint fourth place we have SIMON DICKINSON, MATT DORAN, GRAHAM PHILLIPS and DAVE WOOD.

WEEKEND RESULTS
This weekend we only had seventeen of our teams in action and they came from Leagues one and two. The reason for that is that we had some more of the World Cup Qualifying Rounds this weekend. Out of the teams that did play only two failed to score any goals. The highest score that we had over the weekend came from the English League One where we had two teams that picked up four goals each. They were BRADFORD and DONCASTER.
Bradford won 4-1 away to MK DONS to score their biggest result of the season. Bradford with just one vote take their goals tally to 24. Bradford are in their eleventh season with Golden Goals and they started in our second season of 1984/85 where they were our 29th voted team in the competition. In that season they finished on a total of 90 goals. We did not have to wait long before they scored their highest score with 91 goals in the 1987/88 Season. Last season they finished on a total of 64 goals. Over the seasons they have scored a total of 718 goals which gives them an average score of 65 goals per season.
MK Dons have taken their goals tally to 14.
Doncaster also picked up their highest score of they season when they won 4-1 at home to SOUTHEND after going a goal down. Doncaster with three votes are on a total of 20 goals. They are in their sixth season with us and they became our 100th English team to be voted in but they did not start until the 2003/04 Season where they finished on a total of 84 goals. We then had to wait till last season when they scored their highest number of goals with 87. Over the seasons they have scored a total of 366 goals which gives them an average score of 61 goals per season. Southend picked up their 17th goal of the season.

LEAGUE ONE
WIGAN are still in second place after they won 2-1 away to SCUNTHORPE. Wigan have now scored in all of their last seven games and they are now on 25 goals. Scunthorpe picked up goal number fifteen after a two game dry spell for goals. Bradford are still in third place after their win with Peterborough going down to fifth place as they had no game this week. 
FLEETWOOD won 2-1 away to PLYMOUTH to give them a total of 21 goals and they still have a 100% scoring run after twelve games played. Plymouth are now on 8 goals. PORTSMOUTH hit goal number seventeen after they won 1-0 away to Gillingham.

LEAGUE TWO
EXETER are now top as they win 1-0 away to Carlisle. Exeter are now on 22 goals. LUTON have moved up to third place as they win 2-0 away to Accrington. Luton take their goals total to 23. COVENTRY are still in fourth place as they drew 0-0 away to Barnet. That was their fourth blank of the season. COLCHESTER won 2-0 at home to MANSFIELD to give them a total of 19 goals while Mansfield picked up their fourth blank of the season. LINCOLN CITY are on a total of 16 goals as they win 2-1 at home to Chesterfield. FOREST GREEN drew 1-1 away to Notts County to pick up their 11th goal of the season after a run of three games with out a goal. PORT VALE lost 2-1 at home to Grimsby but they are now on 10 goals.

OUR BEST THREE TEAMS this week with Golden Goals are

OUR WORST THREE TEAMS ARE

CRYSTAL PALACE (3) BOURNEMOUTH (7) EVERTON (7) Total of 17 goals

Our Best team is RAITH ROVERS who have scored in all of their last eleven League and Cup games with 31 goals.

BOLTON have now picked up eight blank score sheets after thirteen games played and they have failed to score in their last seven games.

Our highest goal scoring team in our 35th Season is LUTON from League Two. They picked up our highest score in week one as they win 8-2 at home to Yeovil in their first league game of the season.

GUY DOWSETT (2) remains on top even as his combination had a rest this week. He has now been top for four weeks with Celtic, Leeds Utd and Manchester Utd. Alex Davey is a goal behind Guy as his combination also had a rested week. Alex’s has the combination of Celtic, Leeds Utd and Manchester City.
