OVAL WORLD FANTASY CRICKET LEAGUE 2019

Monday, 15th April - The first set of scores are out at long last (apologies for the delay, but my main PC unexpectedly threw in the towel) and they show William Summerlin grabbing an initial lead, followed by Paul Blake; while Andy Woodhouse and Mark Percival are also very much in touch. Don't forget, the transfer window closes at 11am on 14th May, so make sure you email your changes to marcushook64@gmail.com before then.

Friday, 24th May - Paul Blake's CACC LUFC SCCC leapfrogs William Summerlin's Fresh Tactical Dimension at the head of affairs. Meanwhile, Stuart Watson and Anthony Vidler have top four billing for the first time this season, following the transfer window; shuffling Andy Woodhouse and Marc Percival down to fifth and six respectively.

Friday, 7th June - The lead changes hands again! Mark Percival (who finished 8th last year) now finds himself out in front, with a near five-point advantage over Stuart Watson, who was fourth in 2018 and has been there or thereabouts this term. Like Stuart's team, Anthony Vidler's has moved up one place. That's the top three, but the two biggest movers, in terms of points, since the May 24 calculation were Rob Lewis (88.1 points seeing his side swap 12th for sixth) and Chris Keene (up from 16th to 11th).

Friday, 21st June - As it's a case of "as you were" for the top four, maybe things starting to assume an air of certainty (much like Somerset's march towards the County Championship title). Actually, no, because there's just 0.38 of a point between the table topping Marc's Magicians and the second-placed Mandatory Reselection. Will it be a two-horse race? The chasing pack down to yours truly in 7th will still fancy their chances, but luck with injuries could play a big part. For the record, the three highest points-scoring teams since the last update were: 64.2 points - Curse These Metal Hands, 62.2 - Mandatory Reselection and 57.8 - Sorrento Sunshine XI.

Friday, 5th July - Stuart Watson has taken over at top and has a slender 8.75-point lead over Marc Percival. Apart from Anthony Vidler, who is holding firm in third, there's been some real jockeying for position between fourth and thirteenth. The main beneficiaries since June 21 have been Harry Rowe (up from 9th to 4th), Fred Rowe (who has swapped 12th for 6th) and Nick Blyth (13th last time, but now up to 9th).

Friday, 19th July - It remains a two-horse contest going into the break for the Vitality T20 Blast, but Mandatory Reselection's advantage over Marc's Magicians is down to 2.7 points (trimmed from 8.8). Sir Keith Park XI now occupy third spot (up from 7th). Basil Brushers have risen from 9th to fourth, while, completing the top five, CACC LUFC SCCC drop one place. In terms of the most significant points increases since July 5, Adam Munro's Rhodes Less Travelled advanced by 105.4 points, and no less staggering were the spurts put in by Tracey Field's Tea Stops Play (97.2 points) and Anthony Earl's ACE XI (93.5 points).
