Fantasy League week 4

Posted by Seb Duggan on

It's all been shaken up a little bit in the fantasy league table after this weekend's results...

Sam O'Halloran retains the lead, but by only 1 point from Rhidian, whose team was the best performing this week with 37 points; Jack Lavous holds on to his number 3 spot.

Not so fortunate for Seb this week, as his complete team only managed 4 points and sees him plummeting down the table to number 7. Some transfers probably required before next week...

As for the player rankings, Lewis Le-Clercq's fine performance for the 3rd XI earns him an impressive 15 points and leapfrogs him from 8th place right to the top of the table, with Prad moving into second place.

The results for Saturday’s games are up on the site — great wins for the 1st and 2nd XIs! — and so are the week 2 standings of the Fantasy League. No change in the top two positions, but a lot of movement further down, with Jack Lavous moving into third and Rhidian Chapman leaping from 14th to 4th!

In other news:

  • Shane has arrived! He flew in from South Africa on Friday and could be seen netting on Friday evening, in preparation for Saturday’s game
  • We now have league tables for the 1st, 2nd & 3rd XIs here on the site. Simply go to the Statistics page and click on the League Tables link

Dons through to Round 3 of the VKO

Posted by Seb Duggan on

OK, so it’s not a huge achievement since we have won the game by default — Eversley are unable to raise a team for Sunday's second-round clash — but it means that our next VKO cup game will be at Ridge Meadow on Sunday 29 May against either Sparsholt or Godshill.
