Fantasy Forfs Update - 4th August

Well it's all change at both ends of Forfs Fantasy League 2017. Team Bruce have been busy badgering through the stats! The Garden clan have taken over at the top with Dino being closely pursued by his Uncle Graeme! 

Messrs Lockhart and Johnston are likely to be involved as the season gets towards the business end! 

Down the bottom Gregor Young has moved up the ladder leaving Al Salisbury cut adrift at the bottom! Hopefully some of the players can do him a favour of which Al is due a few!! 

A reminder to a lot of participants who have not paid, the next leaderboard will have your named in red should you not have organised payment. It's all for the greater good of the club, money can be left behind the bar, given to team captains or Andy Wallace/Liam Sweeney.
