The last man/lady standing will win 50% of the pot, to a maximum of €500
If you are interested to get you started you need to reply to this e-mail address (email@example.com) before 12 pm Friday night (9th September) with:
1. Your team selection for week 1
2. Your name and email address. I need e-mail address for each player to facilitate direct contact for predictions
3. Let Mark know how you are going to pay the €10 entry fee (can be given to any coach. I also attach a simple payment link to facilitate payment online (preferable method). Best to do online via PC/Laptop as link sometimes does not like mobile devices.
Please note that it is only one payment of €10 per entry for the competition – i.e. not €10 per week, with the winner getting 50% of the total collected, to a maximum of €500. The bigger the entry – The bigger the prize money!
No match reports this week but be assured that the schoolboy fixtures are up and running. Teams have also played in pre-season tournaments with great success.
The A-team results so far:
1 all draw away to Regional
2 nil win at home to Geraldines
1 nil down away to Carew Park
That’s a lot of soccer played by September 1st, we’re off and running!
