Tim takes the title in Fantasy Football League

Monday 27th July 2020

Congratulations to Tim Hall, the Wiltshire FA's Senior Football Development Officer and former Royal Wootton Bassett Town first and reserve team player, who claimed this year's RWBTFC Fantasy Football League title.

His was a thoroughly deserved title too.

Although top of the table when the Premier League season was interrupted, the pressure was on Hall when it got back underway, with his lead being just seven points over nearest challenger Martin Cooper, with others within clear striking distance too.

But Hall's selections in June and July were inspired – and he finished as the leading scorer over the final nine gameweeks to comfortably seal the crown.

Hall guided his 'FC Eric Bantona' squad to a final total of 2,362 points, 77 more than runner-up Cooper's 'Junior Striker FC' outfit. Completing the top four were YourSport Swindon founder Steve Butt (2,253) and four-time champion Andy Guppy (2,234).

That meant the top four at the point at which the season restarted ultimately formed the top four at the end of the campaign, though Adam Cinquegrani (2,233) came within a point of usurping Guppy.

Rounding out the top ten of a prolonged, though exciting Fantasy Football season were David Attan (2,218), Joe Mitchell (2,217), Stuart Smedley (2,211), Jamie Richards (2,199) and Wesley van Vliet (2,195).

Huge thanks go to the 124 entrants who took part in this year's Fantasy League – that figure is yet another record, eclipsing the 111 who entered in 2018-19.

The Fantasy League is always great fun and, importantly, remains free to enter. The league will be up and running again next season for its eleventh edition – and we look forward to seeing even more participants then.
