Winner Of Last Man Standing Collects Prize

Sligo Rovers would like to congratulate all the winners in the recent Last Man Standing competition & thank all of the participants who entered. The competition commenced back in August with over 300 entries.

The rules of the competition were quite simple, with all entrants picking one team per week to win their respective match in the English Premiership. However, you were not permitted to pick the same team twice.

The eventual winner, Diarmuid Feeney from Grange, collected his prize today in the Showgrounds of €1,000. First team manager, Gerard Lyttle presented him with the cheque earlier today. His winning selection was Liverpool, after they defeated Huddersfield 3-0 on Saturday October 28th. Diarmuid spoke to the club after collecting his prize and said the following " I have always been an avid Sligo Rovers supporter and when asked, I was more than happy to spend €20 to enter the competition. I never imagined in my wildest dreams that I would be the winner. I'm in a state of shock. I cannot wait for the 2018 season to kick-off and I am confident of a strong season under the leadership of Gerard Lyttle".

There was also a runners up prize of €300 won by Alan Jinks, who lost out on the top prize after selecting Crystal Palace to beat west Ham on the same weekend. The game eventually finished 2-2.

The final prize of €200 was awarded to Niall O' Brien who finished in a very respectable third place.

Due to the success of the competition in its maiden year, the club is very much looking forward to running a Last Man Standing competition again next year.
