This is the home of the OSA Fantasy Football League based on the Daily Telegraph Fantasy Football. Don Bewick ran the 2007/08 season and is also running this season 2008/09 - so queries should be addressed to him.
He would like also to try and build a list of all email addresses of all players, so please try and keep him up to date!
Results of the league will be displayed here as the season progresses, and a league table produced here as frequently as possible. Also prepared to help are Roger Engledow or David "Huddy" Hudson who can provide more explanations and assistance. Any of the underlined text above are links and will connect you either with the Fantasy Football website or enable you to email any of the organisers.

FANTASY FOOTBALL – MID TERM REPORT
Our league table for the first half of the season was headed for the most part by HANSEN’S X1, Alan Hansen’s team having been drafted in for added interest, together with that of Jose Mourinho, rather lower in the table and currently level with that of a rather less illustrious manager!
Amongst our own teams, THINSLUG was in the lead most of the time, overtaken a few weeks ago by ODETOTHOMASDONS. However, IN THE NETFC (Richard Slatford) then had one very good week just before Christmas, and has not really looked back since but there is still a long way to go. Additionally, we are running our own Cup competition with the first round in fact based on results in the FA Cup over the week ending 6th January, as below.
The resulting Quarter Final “games” will be:-
HEMMINGS HEROES vs NO HOPERS
Someone at the Christmas Lunch said the whole concept of Fantasy Football was quite beyond him! In regard to our “League Table” I should therefore perhaps explain that “Week Points” are the points awarded by the Daily Telegraph per team based on appearances, goals scored or “key assists” plus extra points for “Man of the Match” awards and minus points for yellow/red cards etc. “Total Points” is self evident; “Overall Position” is a team’s overall position in the Daily Telegraph table – e.g. HANSEN’S X1 is the 4242nd team of all teams in the competition.
It is disappointing that we do not have more Old Stationers involved as this would make it more interesting. It is after all the only OS activity open to all, “far as you roam..” (John Shanks competes from Auckland NZ). I should add that there is the camaraderie of a “Message Board” provided by the Daily Telegraph, on the part of their website specifically allocated to our Super League, which encourages a certain amount of banter between competitors (difficult to describe but works pretty well). For any help with further details, you can contact me on 01707 263044 or via email - firstname.lastname@example.org
