Seamus & Willie collecting their winnings from Dave Noble
The 2 remaining players, Willie O’Neill & Seamus Bridgeman, both made it through to the final round after both their teams, Wolves & Everton, won at the weekend. The lads have decided not to take a chance and agreed to share the first prize of €500.
Thanks to everyone who took part and supported this club fundraiser. We will run another competition when the new Premier League season starts.
And then there were just 2 remaining. Before the weekend’s games, there were 19 players but after the dust had settled only Seamus Bridgeman & Willie O’Neill are left standing as we head into round 9 next weekend, thanks to victories by Fulham & Man City. With just 2 rounds of games left, will be have just one winner of the €500 or will it be shared between the two lads?
The 19 remaining players have made their picks for round 8 and with most of them having used the big clubs already, there’s been a lot of soul-searching this week with 9 different sides being selected. Willie O’Neill had kept Man City in reserve so right now, he’s the bookies favourite to advance to round 9 with the others keeping their fingers & toes crossed. Southampton are the popular choice of 9, followed by Arsenal 3 and then Everton, Watford, Newcastle, Brighton, Man City, Palace & Fulham with one apiece. After this weekend, there will only be 2 rounds left before the season finishes but how many people are ging to make it through to round 9?
70 players are still standing as we enter Round 7 and the picks are in. 10 different teams are selected and Bournemouth are the popular choice this week with 25 players opting for them, followed by , Chelsea 13, Liverpool 10, Watford 8, Wolves 5, Arsenal 4, Man Utd 2 and Leicester, Newcastle & Southampton with 1. Best of luck everyone. Continue reading
