Barrow Fantasy Cricket 2017 Is Launched

In recent years, Barrow Gurney’s own version of fantasy cricket has proved incredibly popular with players, supporters and friends of the club. BGCC is pleased to announce that the 2017 season of Fantasy Cricket is ready to go –  it is not too long now before the season begins with the first game on Saturday April 15th, so to get the maximum opportunity to pick up points get your teams in before then – all senior games will count, league or friendly. There are a few new players who you may have seen at nets  who are not available for purchase because they are not yet registered on Play Cricket but as soon as they are set up then they will be added and may well provide an interesting selection dilemma as unknown quantities!

Organiser, Ali Hood says to players:  “don’t be offended in anyway by your price  – I have tried to create prices that reflect a combination of last year’s points tally & potential/expectation  but also to ensure we have a broad range of starting prices so that we have some variety & choice when picking teams”.

Your total team spend cannot be more than £35million but you can change your team each week (before Saturday at noon) at a cost of 10 points.

 To register this year just click in the menu above to register your team, and, of course make payment of £10 per team to Ali Hood, or £20 for 3 teams. Half of the money raised is paid out in prizes with the rest going to club funds. The last 2 years statistics are available on the website in case anyone needs an idea of who to pick.

Last years winner, Mark Forge said ” Fantasy Cricket is a great way of building up the club community as it encourages players to keep an eye on performances in all the teams no matter which team they play in themselves. It is one of the talking points throughout the summer.”
