Now you can enter The HWHC Dream Team, fantasy hockey league. Pick your XI now!
After an extended hiatus, it's back, but would you pick yourself?
We are delighted to announce the return of HWHC's Dream Team Fantasy Hockey competition. Whether you want to play to win the CASH prize (amount will be sizeable!), to give your mates grief about their own shocking scores, or to desperately work out who that person is that you fancy before including them in your team to try and flirt with them, then this is the competition for you. It's a lot of fun!
The league will work in exactly the same way as last year - for those new to it, it's dead simple. You can select players from throughout the club (max 2 per team) who you think will score you the most points on the weekend. Points are awarded for appearances, goals, clean sheets, umpiring other teams etc with penalties in place for those that pick up cards with their back chat to umpires or have a penchant for the weekly Dick of the Day award - A full list of how to score points (and have points deducted!) can be found here. Basically start with Neil Hamilton and work it out from there. You don't need to be an expert either, you may feel that just picking a "stupid name XI" a "hot men XI" or even a "Dutch XI" (I think we have enough?) is enough to enjoy the fun.
Players are valued using a series of complex algorithms and random number generators - depending on the player and their team’s performance over recent seasons. And its up to you to select your team within the allocated budget. But if your diamond in the rough isn’t performing as you’d have expected then of course we have a number of transfers available to use throughout the season, however and whenever you want.
And if the opportunity to prove the merits of an HWHC superstar wasn’t enough there will be prizes on offer. CASH prizes!
Entry is £15 with all profit going towards the club, so get involved and test yourselves against the rest. Please note that it is free to register and enter a team on the website, but expect to be chased for your £15 by and angry goal keeper if you haven't paid soon!
Please note - the first week of points scoring is next Saturday, 15th October, so you have one weekend to research. Get your entries in and team picked by Friday night!
