Fantasy Football is a game that tests your managerial skills and ability to spot good players.

The World Cup, European Championships and Premiership always seem to have one, but as far as we’re aware, this League One competition is pretty unique.

And it couldn’t really be simpler.

Rules:

You must pick 11 players in a 4-4-2 formation. This side MUST include one goalkeeper, two full-backs, two centre backs, four midfielders and two strikers. Positions of players will be determined by the League organisers.

You can pick two players from the team you support, and two players from one other club. The other seven players have to be from seven other clubs. E.g. 2 from Crewe, 2 from Forest, but other 7 from 7 different teams.

Points will be scored using this system:

Full appearance: +2 points
Part appearance: +1 point
Goal: +5 points
Assist: +3 points
Clean sheet (defenders and keeper only): +5 points for the whole game, +3 for part
Goal conceded (defenders and keeper only): -1 point
Yellow card: -2 points
Red card: -5 points

Managers will be allowed 8 transfers to be taken at any point during the season.

Points will be scored in League One matches from Friday September 1 only.

To participate, ensure you are registered as a Vital Crewe user, and send your team and Vital Crewe username to wholyoak89@hotmail.com by Thursday August 31.
