Mick Wade wins league

A suspense-filled Sunday saw the conclusion of the 2010-11 English Premier League season with Man United parading their trophy for a record 19th time on front of distraught Blackpool fans. Celebrations were no doubt also in full swing at the Wade household as once again the overall winner of the PPP/CTN Fantasy League came from their ranks.

Mick Wade repeated his mother Brenda’s success of last year to this time claim the star prize of a 3.5G iPad from sponsors Cellcard. His team Phnom Penh Villa ended the campaign with 2161 points, 18 ahead of second placed Steve Longley with his side Two Apples Please.

Mick’s total was ranked 2,692nd out of 2,462,096 teams worldwide. Our fantasy league, meanwhile, finished 307th out of a total of 223, 845 registered leagues, which is a testament to the extremely high standard of competition.

Our league is currently comprised of 474 teams and all of them will be automatically entered into the next edition which opens in mid-August. However, it is worth noting that some rule changes may be applied over the summer and published in The Post before the start of the season.

All teams that have not registered for prizes by email should do so as soon as possible to [email protected], including team name, manager name, real name, phone number and occupation. Registered teams’

information will be retained for the next season, but please inform me if there is a change of contact number.

While Mick awaits the imminent handover of his iPad, our weekly winner will also be cherishing his season ending on a high note. Totti Chea with his side Kazzurri FC amassed just 63 points, but it proved enough in a low scoring gameweek to clinch the US$20 phone voucher and T-shirt from Cellcard.

Chea picked just one of the Dreamteam selection (Blackburn’s Jason Roberts for 12 points) and his captain choice of Steven Fletcher for 10 points could’ve been better made.

The hat-trick heroics of West Brom midfielder Somen Tchoyi easily made him the week’s MVP with a haul of 20 points, while Man City’s goal scoring defender Joleon Lescott also impressed with 15 points.

Seasonal tallies were topped by Man United’s Nani on 198 points, closely followed by the cheerfully cheap Charlie Adam of Blackpool on 192 points. Chelsea’s Florent Malouda came in third with 186 points.
