So next up CHESTER in the Trophy

After so many predicting the right score at Eastleigh, we have a range of predictions for this game

The wins just have it with 14
But the pessimists number 12
And those with the draw 7

Penultimate match in a 6 fixture month is BRAINTREE at home

Everyone except Chopsy ( going for a 3-3 draw) predicts a win and that's what we need to keep the title challenge realistic.

Monthly leader John Whiffen goes for 2-0 and a crowd of 1762
Seasonal leader Joycie goes for 3-0 and a crowd of 1766

Well over half predict between 1600 and 1799

Ten years ago this kind of fixture would have attracted around 600-700 or so, as recently as 2012 it was just over a 1000 - now almost everyone's expecting between 1500 and 1900!

Great growth!!!

No harm in underlining this point. Lots of factors have influenced this but it is great progress.

It's the final countdown...BARROW away, hopefully we will have an outright winner to the January competition

Only a defeat would separate Urban Spaceman (2-1) and John Whiffen (2-0) but 1-0 and kennysarmy would draw level giving a 3 way tie. Linfield can't win it but 2-1 would bring him up to 2nd

Joycie can draw level with US and JW if we draw 1-1

Lowest prediction numbers for a win for the season - only 5. It will be a long journey back from Barrow, so anyone is welcome to do the final table Saturday evening, it's unlikely I'll do it before Sunday.

I have only just checked the table today and had no idea I was joint winner - totally shocked !!!! :o :o :o

I'll definitely be having a drink tonight as after missing the last two seasons of the competition, I definitely reckoned I would need far more time to hit my stride.

Thanks so much ! :D

About FGR

We’re a club that looks to the future, but our identity is forged from a rich 128-year history. Founded in 1889, we’re one of the oldest football clubs in the world.

In 2017, we were promoted to the Football League for the first time in our history – which means we can spread our sustainability message to an even bigger audience. FIFA recently described us as the greenest football club in the world. That’s quite an accolade, and it shows how we’ve been able to bring together football and environmental consciousness at the highest levels of the game.
