Chris Williams awarded October Manager of the Month

Chris top scored in the FPL Dugout League this October with his Sons of Pitches team scoring 253 points. Congratulations Chris!

October covered Gameweeks 7, 8, 9 and 10, but it was Gameweek 9 that stands out like a bear with a sore thumb.

Chris scored an incredible 88 points – the 89th best score in the whole game that week!

The decision to transfer in and captain Rafael van der Vaart in Gameweek 9 proved a masterstroke. The Dutchman scored 15 points with his brace at Blackburn, so Chris walked away with 30 points.

Robin van Persie returned explosive points throughout the month, Seb Larsson chipped away with steady returns, while the tactic of fielding 3 Newcastle defenders left Chris smiling after Newcastle’s clean sheet in Gameweek 9.

Sons of Pitches were ranked at 1.1 million at the start of October, but rocketed to 114,000 by the end of the month, and established a position in the top 100 of the FPL Dugout League.
