As the Gameweeks come thick and fast under Project Restart I’ll be writing short posts to update the community on how things stand.
Gameweek 35+ brought an end to the semi-finals of both the FFUK Cup and the Milk Plate. The final scores were as follows:
- Paul Baker 211 vs 259 John Willson
- Justin McCarthy 262 vs 265 Jamie Stephens
- Nick Johns 282 vs 348 Pete Cronin
- Ben Carter 261 vs 314 James Downie
In the FFUK Cup, match 1 was incredibly tight going going into the last week of fixtures, but in the John Willson ran away with it with a score of 83 points as my team slumped dramatically to a pitiful gameweek score of 32. Match 2 was a much tighter affair. Jamie Stephens took a bold hit in pursuit of a significant deficit vs Justin McCarthy. His 66 points (once the -4 was applied) was enough as Justin scored just 41.
Over in the Milk Plate the semi-finals were won comprehensively. Pete Cronin had long established a healthy lead and won his match over Nick Johns by a whopping 66 points in the end. Earlier in the tie the James Downie vs Ben Carter contest had been a tight affair. But in GW 35+ Ben was only able to record 39 points, so James’ 78 points brought a comfortable conclusion to proceedings. The Milk Plate winner will get £100 for their troubles while the runner up will receive £50.
So the finals are being contested as follows:
- FFUK Cup Final: Jamie Stephens vs John Willson
- Milk Plate Final: Pete Cronin vs James Downie
The FFUK Cup finalists are playing for a winners cheque of £150 with the runner up receiving £50. Justin and Bakes will get £25 each for reaching the semis.
Good luck to all four finalists.
