LSBM Fantasy Football League 2018-19

07 Aug 2018

The World Cup has recently finished, and although 'It's Coming Home' didn't quite happen (only another 4 years!). We are pleased to say that staff and students at LSBM don't have to wait that long for their next football fix, because LSBM Fantasy Football League is back for another year!

The LSBM Fantasy Football League Champion 2017-18 was John Fairhurst, coach of, The Proppers!

The Proppers have now clinched their second championship, fighting off a spirited challenge from Rabii Mounsif and the El Brunos in second.

John has donated his £72 winnings to the LSBM charity Santa Maria Education Fund in Paraguay, so kudos for that.

Winner of the wooden spoon competition was Cal Courtney with his team, The Poppers, who, in time, effortlessly shrugged off an early challenge from the HappyFaceUnicornGang (in second to last place), coached by Stephane Middleton.

Last year we had 15 people take part, and we would like many, many more, so that John has some proper competition.
 

Here are the final standings from last years competition:
 

1/ The Proppers - John Fairhurst - 2209 points - WINNERS!!!
