We are playing for £715 in competition nine.
During the registration period we were joined by a further twelve players which took us up to one hundred and forty three as the competition goes from strength to strength,we are therefore playing for a cash sum of £715 which is practically equivalent to a ST ( depending on where you sit ),it has been a tremendous response to the LMS comp and as long as we have so much interest i will continue running it...
From the 143 players we selected 12 teams as follows...
32 - Chelsea
25 - Man Utd

15 - Man City
10 - Everton
10 - Wolves
06 - Dundee Utd
06 - West Brom
04 - Brentford
04 - Leeds
03 - Liverpool
01 - Arsenal
