Well football fans, the season is over, let’s take a look at how our fantasy managers performed.
It seemed that our fearless leaders were in the front of the pack for quite a while. Safder and Shui may have alternated between first and second place, but for weeks the battle for the top spot was only really between those two. At the end of 38 gameweeks, here are the winners and honourable mentions from the Web Applications UK League.
Safder’s Milk Snatchers took the top spot with an overall score of 2006.
Shui’s Akatsuki United players fought well with a final tally of 1973.
Third place was heavily contested as Mark with his team Last Place FC beat out John P’s AFC Turkey Drummers by three points: Mark with 1938 and John with 1935 points.
Finally in fifth were Claire’s Snow Soldiers with 1901 points.
Third place was an especially contentious battle as John was ahead by 1 going into the final gameweek, however Mark managed to score 4 more points at the finish line, beating out John for the Third Place Prize AND manager of the month of May. Ouch.
And so this year’s tournament is closed, congratulations to the winners, commiserations to the losers and let’s all get ready for next year’s rematch!
And because everyone loves a good table, here is how the managers looked at the end of the season.

Viewers of the table should keep in mind that not all of the players joined during the first gameweek. For example Vivienne’s Little Giants didn’t start playing until week 4, so there are three weeks where that team did not gain any points at all. The same can be said of Lester United and Thargy United. It should also be noted that the teams ranked 20th to 26th each had two or fewer transfers during the course of the entire season. To put that in perspective, the average number of transfers in the top five teams was 52. Well, once again we hope everyone enjoyed the season and look forward to competing again next season!
