At the other end of the table, the wooden spoon looks to already be in the bag for the Woodentops: some suspiciously accurate predictions from Sharron have seen her assemble a potently poor team that has somehow managed to score only 137 points from the last nine matches. The rest of the field will be hoping that some of the Woodentops players have good games (or indeed have games at all) to make the wooden spoon a bit more of a competition.
There are also several new players who we have welcomed both into the club and into the Fantasy League player pool. They are:
- John Chilton (Batsman - £25,000)
- Aaron Day (Batsman - £20,000)
- Ollie Hughes (Wicket-Keeper - £10,000)
- Luke Jeffrey-Hammond (Batsman - £10,000)
- Jamie King (All-Rounder - £20,000)
- Dileep Narayanasa (Bowler - £25,000)
- Adesh Pal (All-Rounder - £50,000)
- Gordon Williams (Batsman - £10,000)
Any of these players could be just the bargain you need to invigorate your team: thanks to his century against New Bradwell, Adesh Pal is currently the individual points leader with 439, although Syed Naqvi is close behind on 430.
Almost all teams also have a full quota of transfers still available. As we are now into the third month of the season, that means that each team is allowed to use its first three transfers.
Finally, please do be aware that there is no rule against late entries. You will be docked half the points earned by players before you submit your team (though this cannot be used as a tactic for the wooden spoon competition, for which your full points total will be included), but canny selections may just make it worth your time.
