Premiership snowball
So, after six weeks our Premier League fund-raiser has come to an end. We had no outright winner but we had three entrants left standing coming into the final weekend, so the prize money will be divided equally among Michael Ward, Jimmi Lorsen and Roise McGrath. We would like to thank all who supported this fund-raiser and a special thanks to Mr Oilman who sponsored the prize money!
