"Fantasy League 2009 player pools finalized, get your entries in now!"
John Robertson has done a fantastic job getting the information together for the Musselburgh CC Fantasy League 2009 competition.
Playing a game of cricket isn't enough fun for the mighty mussy boys so to make life more interesting the club will be holding a competition on performances throughout the season.
Players select their own fantasy team and, based on each individual's performance, points are awarded or subtracted for things such as runs, half centuries, centuries, wickets, 5 wicket hauls, catches and dropped catches.
Enter as many teams as you like, the more you enter the better chance of winning. But be sure to enter BEFORE the start of the season.
Check out the teams & rules on the Members -> Fanatasy League.
Meant as a fun addition to our weekend games, the competition should create some great banter in the Ravelston after the games!
This is why fielding practice is important everyone!!![Wednesday 08/04/2009] (Back To Top)
