Fantasy Premier League

Fantasy Premier League is a game of skill and luck (mostly luck).  All you need in order to play is to have a device with Internet access.  Each week you pick your fantasy football team.  Each week the boffins behind the game award points to your players based on their performance. 

Each month we announce the manager of the month and the runner up.  We also name and shame (in a fun way) the manager with the fewest points.

All we ask is that participants make a one-off or regular donation to the Development Fund.

If that interests you and you would like to join, please contact, Keith Bonney – keith.bonney@bpafc.com

Season 2022-23

November 2022

The Premier League shuts down for much November and December.  Some of our best assets are off to Qatar.  Come on England!   World Cup songs tend to be a bit rubbish.  Thankfully the associations of the home nations have come to understand you leave music to the musicians.

In first place, singing when he’s winning, it’s Matt Bonney with hit and hope scoring 120 points.  World in Motion.

In second place, more sharp than flat, it’s Matt Ray with Sliced Bread FC scoring 114 points.   Vindaloo.

In last place, playing all the right notes in the wrong order, it’s Chris Parker with Harold Park FC scoring 50 points.  Ally’s Tartan Army.  Come on Chris.  You’re better than that!

Nobody won the Eckerslike prize this month.

October 2022

Erling Haaland has notched up 117 FPL points.  That’s 34 more than his nearest rival Harry Kane.  What a start!   Erling Haaland is Top Gun.

In first place this month scoring a brilliant 399 points it’s Lewis Sale with Bus Stoppers.  Iceman.

On his tail it’s Richard Higginbottom with his team Higgy’s Hotshots, scoring a commendable 383 points.  Maverick.

Misfiring at the back of the formation it’s Dan Burnett with Show me Da Mane, scoring 248 points.  Pike.  Come on Dan.  You’re better than that!

September 2022

We love a 30-yard screamer.  We marvel at an audaciously executed Panenka.  We gasp when we see a scorpion.  Watching the stars demonstrate their skills reminds us why we love the beautiful game.

In a brilliant turnaround in form, this month’s winner is zero to hero David Nettleton with Bantams FC, scoring 134 points.  Rabona.

We have joint runners up this month.   Stepping out from the shadow of brother Woody, it’s Willy Eckerslike with Lokomotiv Buttershaw.  Alongside him we have Lewis Sale with Bus Stoppers.  Each scored 131 points.  Nutmeg.

In last place it’s newcomer Brian Sutcliffe with Motley Collection, scoring 68 points.  Hospital pass.   Come on Brian.  You’re better than that!

August 2022

The BPA Development Fund kicked off its third Fantasy Premier League season this month.  Good luck to the 28 oldie and newbie wannabee Premier League managers who signed up for the fun.

The Premier League celebrates its thirtieth birthday this season.  In 1992 a pint of lager cost £1.49 and you could leave the lights on without having to worry about the bill.

This is going to be a strange World Cup sandwich of a season.  The Premier League will stop in November at which time some of our top assets will fly out to Qatar to take part in the FIFA World Cup.  It will resume on Boxing Day, meaning we can all enjoy our traditional festive football fix.    

In first place this month, picking up where he left off last season, it’s Matt Ray with Sliced Bread FC, scoring 351 points.  World Cup sandwich.

Just one point behind, it’s newbie James Johnson with Johnson’s Johnson’s.  Club sandwich.

In last place, also picking up where he left off last season, it’s David Nettleton with Bantams FC, scoring 209 points.  Unused Sub.  Come on David.  You’re better than that!

Nobody won the Eckerslike prize this month.
