With the curtains coming down on another electric Premier League season yesterday (Old Trafford calamity aside), in truth, there wasn’t all that much to play for.
Leicester had already wrapped up the league (it still blows my mind!).
Newcastle, Norwich and Aston Villa had already been relegated.
Chelsea had already secured mid-table mediocrity.
But despite this, fans up and down the country were still waiting with baited breath to witness the Pro-Tech Charity Fantasy Football reach its conclusion! With £150 going towards the winning manager’s charity of choice, there was more than just pride at stake going into the final weekend of the season.
In a title race that has been neck and neck for the majority of the season, Jossies Giants, managed by the continental and attacking style of Jon Mills, managed to squeeze themselves over the line in front of the Roman Motyczak’s valiant Roman Rovers. Mills, who is a dedicated supporter of Macmillan Nurses used his post-match press conference to express his delight at being able to offer something back to his chosen charity.
At the other end of the spectrum, disappointment was the word of the day at the home of Roman Rovers, the Roman Arena. Speaking on a devastating afternoon for his side, Motyczak had this to say: ‘I’d like to take this opportunity to apologise to the fans. I take full responsibility. I should have known not to pick Spurs players going into the last game of the season against a 10 man relegated Newcastle team with nothing to play for. The St. Totteringham’s day voodoo was always going to kill our chances. Congratulations to Jossies Giants, though, they deserve it. We’ll be back next season.’
But with these last words, something was still left unaddressed by the 500 strong press contingent.
Roman Rovers will be back, but will Motyczak be back in the hot-seat next season?
‘I’ll sit down with the directors next week. Whatever happens, I’ve got the Rovers in my heart. All I’ll say is I’m hoping to head into the Pro-Tech Euro’s Charity Fantasy League with a strong team under my belt. After that, we’ll see. I don’t doubt my ability.’
Congratulations to Jon Mills on being able to donate the charity prize fund to MacMillan nurses. We’re delighted to be donating to Jon’s worthy cause in what has been a great competition to run this year. Pro-Tech is committed to giving back to the local community and causes close to our hearts. This commitment will continue for many years to come.
For those interested in the European Championships, Pro-Tech will be running another charity fantasy football competition over the competition’s duration. We will be releasing further details closer to the date, but the competition will be open to anyone, with the final prize being a £100 donation to the charity of your choice as well as a further £50 available.
