WE HAVE A WINNER (on points) LAST MAN STANDING!
After seven gruelling game weeks of our Last Man Standing competition we finally have a winner…but it was a bit of an anti-climax in the end. In our last week we had seven players left standing but as fate would have it all seven players went out! So we had to rely on the scoring system of points accumulated over the seven weeks to determine the winner.
The rules stated:
“If more than one participant remains at the end, the accumulated ‘scored for’ of their selected teams will determine the winner. This also applies if during the competition the remaining players are knocked out in the same gameweek then the player with the highest score will be the winner.”
It was a close run thing, with just one point between the top two players.
And I can now reveal that winner of the prize fund was Kielty Hughes (Klippity Klopp) from South Armagh.
And boy did he take this competition seriously. In the final stages he was enquiring who everybody was, checking out the competition and studying all their previous picks. In fact when the results came rolling in over the weekend and men were dropping like flies he couldn’t hide his excitement.
Poor Ciaran Quinn (Winner Alright) was unfortunately Alwrong and lost by a single point.
The Rossglass County F.C Committee would like to thank all those who registered and played – for your support and your valuable contribution. It takes a lot of money to run a football club, so thank you for your donation! It is greatly appreciated.
And that brings me on to a few important thank yous…..to the guys who have no association whatsoever with Rossglass County but kindly donated – a big thank you to you. You played from as far away as New Zealand, Los Angeles and the cosmopolitan hotspots of Derry, Newry, Belfast and Armagh.
To the players of Rossglass County, parents, coaches, committee members and I’m sure I have forgotten a few others we really do appreciate the time and effort you put in to make this club the success it is.
So 60 men started, 7 fell in the final week but we had to have a winner…that’s why we have rules so I’m told. We’ll be back in September with a new one, I know you all can’t wait and we’d appreciate it if you would sign up again. And we may even try to squeeze a World Cup competition in over the summer while we wait for the new season to start.
