STAKE - £5 per person. No multiple bets allowed.

Please note b4 u bet, that this sweepstake has not been sanctioned by the Club itself, nor does it have the blessing of the Club. This sweepstake is just for fun and is a private matter for those forummies who wish to take part. All bets taken on trust.
The prize money will be split 50/50 between the winner and a local charity, being currently as suggested - Bleakholt Animal Sanctuary.

All bets must be placed on this thread only. Pls do not use the other ' main topic ' thread, and clutter it up.

The deadline for placing ur bet is Wed 30th Jan.

The 50% donation to Charity will be receipted and the receipt posted in the tea bar at the Ground.

The ' gate figure ' will be that announced on the day of the match by Tannoy/PA System, and winner paid out in Cricket Club bar directly after the match. In the unlikely event of 2 winners or more, the pot will be shared. Also, should the match be postponed for whatever reason, then the whole sweepstake will be nil and voided - the reason being that a re-arranged game may be played on a Tuesday night and therefore the crowd will be much diminished and throw everyone's guesstimates's out.

Please put ur Guesstimate on this thread only. Cheers.


HAVE SOME FUN - and to help you along, and give some indication of the crowd figure, it is likely to be between zero and 2000 which I understand to be the Ground's Max. Capacity !

My guess (as per the other thread) is 726. I assume the winner is the closest guess, not needing the exact number as we did with the points total thing we did last season?

Nice one LK - get's the ball rolling, so to speak. Am not expecting many ' takers ' for this sweepstake, as it may go down like a lead balloon similar to our World Cup sweepstake last year. But am I BOVVERED, BOVVERED ! , NO NOT BOVVERED !
We'll press on as just a bit of FUN.
As 4 ur query, Yessum - the closest to the actual figure announced by Tony Boy over the PA System at the match, on the day, whether it be an over-guesstimate, or an under-guesstimate.

Cheers.

Cheers Guys. I'll put my guesstimate up over the weekend, but I'm finding the figure really hard to predict. Seems a lull in proceedings at the mo, matchwise , but no doubt cup fever will build up soonish. Also good luck 2u.

It does appear that the FYLDE fans are not that interested in the FA TROPHY as the two home cup games have only attracted 491 and 594 and this includes away supporters! So on this basis I feel the away support may be low. I will ponder a while longer.

Mmmmmmm - quite a conundrum this one.
Looking forward to seeing Fyldes super executive coach on our car park. If Fylde's over-riding priority is promotion to the Football League, they may come with a half-hearted approach to the match and may well come unstuck , and put The Rams through to the quarter-finals. Only 3 games to Wembley then !
ps - I think the semi-finals are a two-leg jobby.

I think it makes sense to have a deadline for posting bets on this sweepstake. The deadline is 11.59pm on Wed 30th Jan. No prob's with Big Jim to ' ponder a while longer ', and hopefully there are other forummies out there who are holding on to their bets and keeping their ' powder dry ', so to speak , and holding their cards close to the chest. I just wonder if ' late bets ' put some forummies at an undue or unfair ' advantage ' and we should allow for revision of bets, provided they meet the deadline ? i.e. allow forummies to change their bets in light of changing circumstances, providing they meet the deadline ? , and have a second go ? or is the whole jobby just ' pot luck ' anyway ? Any thoughts ?

Cheers.
