Fantasy league awards its first weekly winner


Chelsea’s Didier Drogba want the top points grabber with 17 points. AFP

Newcastle’s reality check from Man United on Monday rounded off the first gameweek of our PPP/CTN Fantasy League and gave rise to our first weekly prize winner.

With a stunning hat trick from Chelsea’s Didier Drogba against West Brom, it was no surprise to see the top five managers have the marauding Ivory Coast striker as their captain to double up his tally for 34 points.

Chelsea’s Malouda bagged a brace for 15 points, while Man City keeper Joe Hart’s heart-stopping stops against Tottenham earned him 12 points. Sadly, top totaling manager Kris McDonall who scored 88 points with his side Convicticos, failed to register his team by email in time.

Thus the weekly prize courtesy of sponsors Cellcard of a US$20 phone voucher and T-shirt goes to second placed Nith Poch with his team Aston Memot. A star pick for Poch was Aston Villa midfielder Marc Albrighton for 9 points.

Sixty eight points separate 253 teams in our league, though we still welcome any new players to sign up for a shot at the weekly titles and overall prize of a 3.5G iPad. Managers should be aware that you must register by email to [email protected] to be eligible for prizes before a winning gameweek. Please include your team name, manager name, real name, phone number and occupation.
