With the world still reeling from the most astonishing of finales to a Premier League season, the PPP/CTN Fantasy League wrapped up its latest season to markedly less fireworks.

As expected, Brenda Wade, with her trailblazing team AV Cambodia, won her second overall title in three years with an inspiring total of 2,356 points.

She deservedly collects the 3.5G iPad first prize, courtesy of sponsor Cellcard, and we can all marvel at her masterful managerial skills that saw her finish 24th in the entire global competition of nearly 2.8 million users. Way to fly the flag for Cambodia, Brenda!

Crabby Joe’s The Spleef Queens ended a respectable second, 61 points behind AV Cambodia and 67 points ahead of third-placed Steve Longley and his team O Canada.

The season’s early frontrunner, Henry Verey with VoxClamantis, finished up in fifth while last year’s champion Mick Wade could only muster eighth.

Although the Manchester clubs grabbed all the headlines for obvious reasons, none of their players made the Dream team for gameweek 38.

The most valuable asset of the week was Everton’s Johnny Heitinga with 17 points. The Dutch defender, picked by just over one per cent of the fantasy managers worldwide, scored one and set up another to help steer his side past Newcastle.

Just a point behind Heitinga was fellow backliner Emerson Boyce of Wigan, who netted twice against Wolves.

Our weekly winner, claiming the remaining internet dongle and T-shirt from prize sponsors Cellcard, was Tech Symo with his team Symo Fantasy FC amassing 78 points.

Whether it be incredible foresight or blind luck (you decide), Symo’s squad went unchanged for 20 straight gameweeks to come up trumps in the final round.

Man United’s Wayne Rooney as captain for 18 points and Stoke midfielder Jonathan Walters (14) helped shape up Symo’s side for the victory.
