Mike Gascoigne wins Toy World Fantasy Football crown

Published on: 27th June 2018

Wilton Bradley key account manager returns to the summit after a two year hiatus.

Mike Gascoigne literally destroyed the opposition in this year’s Toy World Fantasy Football League. His winning margin of 121 points represented a thoroughly convincing campaign for the former winner, who last topped the Toy World League three years ago. To put Mike’s performance in context, the game has almost 6m players and he came 1140th overall – an impressive feat.

Toy World’s John Baulch was once again the runner-up, beating Mattel’s Andrew Wiseman into third place, narrowly followed by Lee Murfet in fourth place and Chris Conway in fifth. A record 77 people participated in this year’s Toy World Fantasy Football League, and the fact that the winner of the past two seasons Hugh Evans found himself finishing in 8th place this year shows how fierce the competition was.

With next year’s Premier League fixtures already announced, it will only be a month or so before next year’s Fantasy League competition opens – if you’re interested in joining next year’s Toy World Fantasy League, drop john@toyworldmag.co.uk an email to register your interest.
