Pocklingtons Renault of Louth
25th May 2018
Back in July 2017 we were feeling brazen, a challenge was issued and the Starkwood Premier League was born, dare you challenge us to a Fantasy Premier League competition for the 2017/18 season? A mini league was formed consisting of 14 teams vying to be the best in the Automotive Industry.
In the end, there was a clear-cut winner, the Pep Guardiola of this season was Joseph Loveday from Pocklingtons Renault of Louth. Over the course of 38 games "Pockys" scored a rather impressive 2,238 points, a huge 110 points above second place Belgrave Motor Company, and 141 points above SMG FC in 3rd place.
This week our Regional Manager for the North, Jon Ireland, visited Joseph for the presentation of a brand new Xbox One S and a copy of FIFA 18.
"I was lucky that I picked Salah and Kane. It's all about getting the right captain. You need to keep on top of it to turn out your best team"
The Champion, Joseph Loveday

Sometimes it's not all about winning, it's the individual accomplishments that matter too, therefore a special shout-out goes to Shere 4x4 and Belgrave Motor Company!
First up is Shere 4x4's entry ClubtropicanadrinkFC whom had the highest score in a single gameweek, a huge 119 points! Timing it perfectly by captaining Mo Salah who scored 4 goals, an assist and a clean sheet, 58 Points came from Salah alone. Sadly SMG FC could only muster up a measly 93 points.
It may have been Pocky's that came out on top over the course of the season, winning 2 Manager of the Months awards along the way. However, it was Belgrave Motor Company's team BACK in the Game, who eventually finished 2nd, that won the most Manager of The Month awards with 3 to their name, coming out on top in December, February and April. Also pipping SMG FC who won 2 awards, and a storming start in the 1st month too, evidently it's a marathon not a sprint.
