PHNOM PENH – Take a bow Matt Kimber, after a truly stunning Fantasy league weekly score of 95 points secured the Cellcard US$20 phone credit and T-shirt with his team the Cambodian Crushers. Matt’s team featured the popular choice of Liverpool’s Fernando Torres as captain to earn 34 points, and also scored big with Sunderland’s Daren Bent (18 points) and Man United’s John O’Shea (15 points). The week’s top performer was unsurprisingly Spurs’ Robbie Keane (21 points) due to his fabulous four against Burnley. Also of note was a slight clerical error last week which ignored the efforts of young Jakamo Sharpe with his team Chiswick FC, who equaled Joel Conkle’s winning haul of 82 points. Jakamo also receives the weekly prize. Next week’s deadline is Saturday October 3 at 5:30pm. Bring it on.
