I am now taking entries for the new Fishy Pontoon Buster. Games will start weekend beginning Friday 24th Jan so deadline will be 6pm that day.

On this occasion I will be donating some of the money raised to a charity very close to my heart, The Brain Tumour Charity. As most of you are aware, I was diagnosed with a brain tumour a number of years back and have since been helping to raise money for them from various things to help with their research, so hopefully one day, they may just find a cure for this dreadful disease.

Entry as always is £10 per team (no limit to the number you can have). Entry money to be sent via Paypal to lesbrechin@hotmail.com or via bank transfer. Details the same as ever, if you don't have them PM me.

I have re-randomised the 115 clubs in the top 5 English Division so please include a couple of numbers for your 1st and 2nd choice of teams. Please also remember to send your Paypal entries to "Family or Friends" not as if you are making a purchase as this way it incurs no charges to send.

The last game has taken the total since I started doing the buster on here to over £10k. Listed below is a detailed list of what has been raised and who has won in the past. Thanks a lot for your support over the years.

Total donated to The Mariners Trust - £1625.00
Total donated to The Graham Holness Fund - £150.00
Total donated to The Phil Lambert Fund - £300
Total donated to Fan Of The Future Fund - £150
Total donated to Chrons & Colitis £133.87

Total all donations = £2358.87

Total won by winners over the 17 games I have run on here is an amazing £7694.96 as below.

Yes, you need to send it to either "Friends or family" or I think now it says "Someone I trust". If you send the money as if you are making a purchase then I incur a charge. It will give you a summary of any charges before you send it.

It is £10 per team. The winner is the first team to score EXACTLY 21 goals. If you go over that then you are bust and out of the game. Only weekend games count ie Friday - Monday and if for any reason your team doesn't play in that period then you score a default 2 goals. There are also prizes for the lowest scorer when the game is won, the first team to score nil on 3 successive weekends and also the first team to sack their manager. Also, depending on the number of entries and the prize pot I give away 2 random prizes to entrants who have not won anything.

Teams are numbers 1-115 and you give me the number of the team you want so all teams are chosen at random, you cannot chose a particular team to have.The last game lasted 9 weeks, so for your tenner you get a decent run for your money. There is no limit to the number of teams you can have but each entry costs £10.
