Lion King FC roars to win in Fantasy League

Lion King FC roars to win in Fantasy League

The weekend hangover was possibly to blame for a forgettable set of midweek results in the Premier League.

The corresponding Gameweek 14 of the CC/PPP/CTN Fantasy League was a similarly insipid affair, with the Dream Team barely limping over the 100-point mark.

Swansea midfielder Wayne Routledge held the dubious honour of being the only player able to score more than once in a match, collecting a peerless total of 15 points for his endeavours.

Tottenham’s Gareth Bale technically put the ball in the back of the net twice, but one was a comical own goal smashed in off his face.

Our weekly winner, Phong Kimchhoy, who amassed 75 points with his side Lion King FC, just couldn’t wait to be crowned King and collect a share of the spoils courtesy of sponsors Cellcard.

The $20 phone voucher and T-shirt will perhaps, in some small way, enrich his circle of life.

Kimchhoy was feeling the love last week thanks to team picks such as Routledge, who he brought in during Game-week 10 and left his line-up unchanged since, and captain Robin van Persie of Manchester United for 18 points.

Gameweek 15 concludes with tonight’s game between Newcastle and Wigan.
