Last 1 Standing Game 1 - 2018/19
(NB - note the new mobile no for texts to this game - 087 390 7540)
Our 2018/19 installment of this competition began on 22/09/18. Thank you to all who rallied behind our call for support of this and previous games to fund the installation of the astro-turf pitch on our training area.
Our guaranteed prize of €1,000 will be won outright by the last person standing; it usually takes ten weeks or so to get to the end and can be divided between up to ten players if there is no outright winner.
Game rules are straight-forward - pay a tenner at the outset to enter, pick a team you think will win that week, if they win, you progress to next round, lose or draw & you're out, and so on. You only get to use each team once in the game.... so you'll try to keep a top-6 team or two for later rounds and take some risks as the game progresses. Full game rules are detailed on the L1S Rules tab above.
Weekly selections are posted each week after the game-week deadline has passed, see the L1S Selections tab above for details of the latest week's selections (which will be posted after entries close for each round).
Fixtures for the upcoming game-week are posted each week, under the L1S Fixtures tab above.
GOLF CLASSIC SET FOR 6th OCTOBER @ SHANNON G.C.
Goalden Goal Competition on Champions League Final.
A fun game makes its debut here this week when 91 punters have entered a sweepstakes for the time of the first goal in Saturday's Champions League final in Kiev. Each gets randomly assigned a minute from 01 to 90, and if that minute is the official time of the first goal. the lucky punter wins €300. If there is no goal in normal time, the punter with minute 91 gets the prize, so we will have a guaranteed winner regardless of the result. All slots are now filled and the names and minute that each got was drawn on Friday; Maurice Landy got #91 so he's hoping for 0-0; Cathal Poole hopes to add to his recent success in our last-1-standing game, he got minute 45 which includes first-half injury-time; and Ian Hogan got minute 90, which includes second-half injury time.
Here's the full list:-
|Grace O Donnell||58|
|John O Callaghan||46|
|Maurice Landy (0)||91|
|Pa O Halloran||74|
|Sarah O Connor||18|
|Seamus O Brien||86|
|Shane O Connor||88|
Thanks for supporting & good luck Liverpool!

Our 2016 installment of this competition began on 13/02/16, with 242 participants showing their skill, judgement and a bit of luck to try to take home the guaranteed prize of €1,000 to be won outright by, (or shared between), the last person(s) standing.
After a decimating week 1, when more than half our players got eliminated, the game developed with some astute picks and we were left with eight players still standing after week 11 at the end of the season.
In accordance with game rules, each of them got a 1/8 share of the prize, so a cheque for €125 is on the way to each of them. Well done folks, hope to see you all back for our next game at start of 2016/17 season, in September.
