Enter by 18 October to take part in this seasons Schools Fantasy Football League

It’s back ..…. Register by Saturday 18 October 2014

We held another successful Schools Fantasy Football league last season, with over 70 teams entered into the William Ransom league.  Ben Tingle was the overall winner, Kieran Morar second and Jamie Morar third.  (Infact all four members of the Morar family finished in the top 8 of the 71 teams – impressive!). 

Mrs Driver has again kindly agreed I can invite pupils, parents and teachers to enter into this seasons Fantasy League.  This will be the sixth year the school has taken part in the competition.  Last time, over 1,500 Schools from all over the U.K. took part. 

What is School Fantasy League?

Since 1998, pupils across the country have become football managers by taking part in this web-based fantasy football league.  You’ll need to put together a winning team selecting players from the premiership.  Each player has a value and you’ll need to select carefully, spending no more than £110Million – a chance to use your maths skills. 

Points are awarded for goals scored, assists, clean sheets etc. etc.  All this is updated regularly on the SFL web-site, to which you will have an individual password.  

This year you will enter your team into two leagues.  One for the whole William Ransom School, so you will be able to compare how well you are doing against your friends, parents and teachers.

The other league you will enter your team in, is for the “Year” you are in.  So this time you will be able to see how your team is doing against pupils who are only in your year.  Hopefully, this will allow us to award Manager of the Month certificates by Year.

For full information about SFL and rules of the league, please visit their website at www.schoolsfl.com. 

Who can take part?
Pupils, parents, teachers and governors of William Ransom (and brothers/sisters who are ex-pupils of WR)

When does it start?
– points scoring starts on Saturday 18 October and finishes with the last premiership game in May.  So you must have registered and selected your team by midnight on Friday 17 October.

How much does it cost?
It’s free!
