The countdown to the fantasy football league has well and truly started, with the big kick off commencing this Saturday, 26th September. As things stand, there are around 60 students that have already signed up for the league and are ready to start scoring with a final reminder email having been sent out on Wednesday 23rd. Mr Baldwin has expressed his frustration with the delayed start to the league after his ‘strong start’ to the season. Arguably the player of the week was Spurs’ Heung-Min Son who scored a staggering 24 points after bagging 4 goals, playing the full match and collecting 2 bonus points along the way. Spurs striker Harry Kane was just behind teammate, Son, with a very impressive return of 21 points which included 4 assists, 1 goal and 3 bonus points.
Looking forward to this weekend’s fixtures, Liverpool face a tough home fixture against Arsenal which may be the stand out game of the weekend, but we anticipate a big return for Chelsea players in their upcoming fixture against West Brom.
If you aren’t following us already, follow @SharplesPE for regular updates throughout the season, alternatively you can keep your eyes peeled for our FPL display board which will be up and running this week.
Again, if any student has any questions, they should email Mr Charlton.
For those that are already in the league, good luck for this weekend!
