A massive congratulations to Rob Bushell who has finally broken his MLW duck and all despite Keech the Bookie installing him as favourite at the start of the season. Yet another year of record numbers 43, up 3 on last year and a new existing website in the pipeline for the World Cup and eventually for the league itself.

Of the 43 competitors, 12 of you made a profit or broke even.

24 of the 43 players won at least one prize.

19 finished out of the prizes altogether, highest placed being Ish Beg in 20th place. 

Simon Baldwin in 26th was the lowest placed competitor to make a profit on the season.

Royce Franklin was the unluckiest of players finishing 10th overall but not managing a monthly prize.

Rob Bushell (3 monthlies), Lesley Rigby and Dan Owen (2 monthlies) dominated the top monthly prize. Ian Cowburn with 3 runner ups and a cup also did very well.

Incredibly Rob and Dan our two leading players both succumbed in the prelim round of both cups as did Wayne Moody, Owen Bristow and Richard Smith. Graham Jeffries (Runner up and Semi) and Simon Baldwin (Winner and quarters) faired much better.

Keech the Bookie - Just how did he do ??

43rd Dave Leech 43rd SPOT ON

4 spot on this year (only 2 last year), interestingly it was the top 2 and bottom placing plus Ryan Moody in the middle.

I was just one out for 3 competitors (4 last year).

Just 2 out for a further 6 competitors (2 last year).

I did pretty well for those in the 30's. I got the Rigby entries the wrong way around, Patrick Williams, Royce Franklin and Ian Cowburn all did better than expected. After good seasons lat time around Phil Hall and Tim McFarlane disappointed this campaign.

Check out the initial preview on the website. The comments make very interesting reading now.
