L13 Winter 2011 : Final Table Roundup

Merry Christmas!:
He bided his time, let the others collect their weekly wins and then struck at the optimum time – step up stormin’ Norman Lee finishing top of the pile after the closest finish we’ve had in years. Well done Norman, buy yourself a Suarez tee-shirt with your winnings…!
Mr Lee had a 6 point lead over the old stalwart Jamie Sellers in second place, who finishes two points above the amazing debutant that is Paul Vinson in third place. Shaun Backhouse was knocked off his perch into fourth place ahead of Paul Carter who will be a ’appy ’Ammer finishing 5th on 329 points one place and two points above Scott Harrison in 6th.
Sam Arora smashed his brother by ending up in seventh place 3 points above Paul Henshaw in eighth, who in turn finishes 1 point above our Ellen Fernandez in ninth.
Neil Templeton finishes in 10th place, thanks to 4 correct scores (from the unlucky Rich L) and nets the last of the “big prizes”
Happy New Year?:
The battle of the bottom to and fro’d and will no doubt it will please someone called Nick… Ben Hogwood takes the wooden spoon this season 6 points adrift of Mark J B – oh dear. Let’s hope Norwich don’t do the same in 2012!
Spot Prizers:
OK, it’s Week 13, you HAVE won these prizes!
It’s nice to share, Just as well as Simon Lindsay & Steve Tagger are at 13th (£12.50 each), saving some syndicate face, Richard Hirst is at 22nd (£20), Howard Thomas is top Eagle at 27th (£20), Matt Worsfold is at 31st (£20) softening the blow of his mobile texting bill, Neil Meredith is at 34th (£20) and pays for his CL entry, Tony Smith is at 38th (£20) but will he put it towards attending the home of football on Jan 9?, Mark Grey is feeling like Sheikh at 44th (£20), Rob Currin is on the 54th (£20) smug in the knowledge he’s the lowest placed CL qualifier, Louise Briggs & Rowan Marriott are on 61st (£10 each) like a City United, Stephen Street on 68th (£30) is this season’s villain & hate figure and Mark J Brown is at 73rd but in Dubai so I’ll keep it (only joking again lah!)
Bet of the Week:
At least we had a couple of winners this season! Still not really working as it should hence the plea on the PAS Poll (send yours in now!)… Rich Lee finished on 11th and picked up zip for his troubles! Martin Stafford can take some consolation finishing on 33rd between Cup qualification and £20, by picking up a “Lady”, Danny Ashworth on 49th has £3.50 to go towards his £20 entry fee as he marches on in the Champions League and the Missus in 71st can only take satisfaction in besting our daughter by one place as there’s no money here either!
Thanks to all who dared to win especially Sean P & Paul C!
PAS Cup 2012:
In order to be invited to enter the PAS Cup 2011 (and pay £20 for this & entry to PAS L13 Spring 12) you had to finish in the Top 32 after 13 weeks of play. Sneaking the last spot is… Neil Osborne
PAS Champions League 2011/12:
I waited a long long time for this to happen, qualified for it and then spectacularly imploded losing all 6 matches (see also Will O & Ben H!)!
So, through gritted teeth, congrats to Group winners (A) Olly Osmond, (B) Richard Hirst, (C) Danny Ashworth, (D) Clare Templeton, (E) Norman Lee (perfect 6 out of 6 record!), (F) Rob Currin, (G) Scott Harrison and (H) Jamie Sellers (perfect 6 out of 6 record!).
A big well done also to runners-up (A) Tony Morris, (B) Josh Hirst (knocking out current League champ Shaun B by 4 correct scores!), (C) Neil Meredith, (D) Neil Templeton, (E) Jazz Sian (knocking out Tony B & Mahli G by 1 correct score and 3 correct scores respectively in a humdinger of a group!), (F) Jamie Tofeili, (G) Dave Nicklin (knocking out Pete B by 3 correct scores!) and (H) Rich Lee (knocking out Mark F by 6 correct scores!).
You’ve all qualified for the knock out stages where PAS Lucky 13 Spring 12 will cost you £20 irrespective of where you finished this campaign – the draw will take place on New Years Day once I’ve secured the services of The Kaiser & Marcello Salas now that JT & Luis Suarez are no longer available…
And Another Thing:
The other little bits…
Shaun Backhouse picked up an additional £10 for getting the Best Weekly Score of the Season (for the second consecutive season!) – 49(8)
Stephen Peaston picks up £7 for Best Correct Score of the Season – Man City 5 Norwich City 1

Thanks again to all for taking time and bothering to enter – and a final big thank you to Dave N for providing all the behind the scenes techky stuff to enable another great season…

We’ll see the Top 32 in January for the PAS Cup & Lucky 13 Spring 11 and those game enough to take on the “cream” – the rest of you (that don’t want to play), we’ll see you in September – remember, spread the word and get all your mates involved for next season!
