In Week Four of the competition we had our tenth winner of the season
and it is the first time that the £6 cash prize money was picked up by just one
player. Our winners won on a score of 10
goals which seems to be the weekends average winning score. One winner is our third
new player to win and they are MARTIN CORBETT.
Martin has had a slow start to the
season and this is his highest position to date. His best team is Aberdeen
netting 11 of his total of 25 goals.
ABERDEEN 4, FULHAM 2, LIVERPOOL 4
MIDWEEK GOALS JACKPOT
Most of us picked up
some midweek goals for the race for the £40 cash prize money this season. The
prize money will go to the first person to reach 100 goals from their three
teams. We had just one player that picked up the most number of midweek goals this
week with ten goals and they went to LUCIFER (John Wood). The goals came from Aston Villa five, Bolton three and
Burton Albion two.
The leader has changed hands this
week and so in front this week with 21 goals we have JULIE
SOMERVILLE who has Aston Villa, Celtic and Reading.In Second place we have LUCIFER on 20 goals. In joint third
place both on 19 goals wehave TONY GUY
(2) and DAVE WOOD both down from
second place. In fourth place all on 18 goals we have SIMON DICKINSON, M. DORAN, TONY KING, AMANDA MORRISON, GRAHAM
PHILLIPS and JAMES PLATT.
We had some pretty high
scores this weekend in our third full weekend fixture. We had three teams with out
a game over the weekend with another sixteen teams that failed to score any
goals. So our weekend average score for the first time this season reached a
total of 5 goals which is a little better than last weekends. So if your teams
picked up more than that, then you have done well.
