And so, a wonderful tournament has come to the end with France probably not worthy winners. Our ‘own’ N’Golo Kante had not been heard off 3 years ago, now he has 2 Premier League Titles, an FA Cup and a World Cup. England have rekindled their spirit and Harry Maguire has been one of the stars of the tournament.
Foxes Trust WC 18 Predictor League attracted 26 entrants although 9 had not entered predictions by semi-final stage, most of the 9 dropping out after the Group stages.
Nationally (England) there were 56,458 participants in the FIFA Predictor competition with the winner XxxPaolo totalling 7,223 points.
Internationally there were 606,234 participants with the winner Dew.Vavavoom amassing an impressive 8,211 points.
So, the winner of the Foxes Trust league was TeddybearUtd (5715 points), proving that the cuddly toy does have a backbone and lots of stamina. Having been up there from the start and, although briefly threatened by Foxedtheoppo (4851) and Morninfox (4293), the Teddybear rallied and then romped away.
Congratulations to the winner who, I can confirm, is a member of The Foxes Trust (and obviously has too much time on their hands), and sincerely thank you all for participating.
The Foxes Trust are proposing to run a Premier League Predictor League starting in time for the 2018/19 Season that starts on 10th August with City’s first match at Old Trafford, you are invited to participate, so watch out for its launch.
Enjoy the summer and re-charge the batteries for hopefully a successful season!
