Our final update from the LDV Fantasy Football League. Congratulations to Alan Worthington, whose Iheanacho Cheese won this year’s competition.

He amassed 2,277 points, which saw him take not only the top-spot, but also a top 25,000 position — not bad for a competition with almost six million players.

Alan just edge out his near-namesake, Alain Desmier — last year’s champion — whose Gander Green Giants finished on 2,271 points. Ciarán McGonagle’s Spartak Fantastak (2,263) came third.

Well done to all. A belated well done, too, to Benjamin Moody, manager of the month for April.

Thanks to all our 200+ players. See you again next season…

Congratulations to Mark Finney, whose Aston Villarreal (2,218 points) lead the LibDemVoice Fantasy Football League after the penultimate gameweek, number 37. But it’s close at the top – fewer than 20 points separate the top three, with Mark Widdop and Edward Douglas having made up ground. Sunday marks the final day of the season. Who will emerge triumphant? We’ll know by the end of the day…

LibDemVoice Fantasy Football League: how it stands after Week 30

There’s no change at the top as we enter the final quarter of the season, with Edward Douglas’s Use Your Ed and Mark Finney’s Aston Villarreal continuing to lead the pack, both having topped 1,700 points. But still fewer than 50 points separate the top 10 so it’s anyone’s league.

(To be clear, by the way, my name is highlighted below only because it’s a screengrab from my laptop. I’m not in any way trying to draw attention to the fact I’m in the top 5. Perish the thought…)

Oh, and as it may not happen again, ever, I’m going to lead a round of applause for the 10th placed team this week. That’s, erm, me, just sneaking on to the leaders’ board.
