Framlington World Cup challenge

Week 11 of the Framlington World Cup Investment Challenge saw some minor jostling in the top positions as we draw to the close of this thrilling competition.

Nick Pike managed to hold on to the top stop for a second week with an overall rise of 10.53 per cent. Nick&#39s Lazy Boyz goes into the last week with an overall lead of 0.02 per cent. John Bramwell and Brian Rooney have managed to stay in the top five and both must feel that the top spot is within their reach. Going down the table, Steve Hawes, Paul Holdsworth, Alan Smith or William Sargent could easily come up on the rails to snatch a top-three spot.

As the games comes to a close next week, we will announce the winner of the final Manager of the Month award. However, remember to watch out on May 29 when the overall winner of the Lay-z-Boy Chandler chair and Dolby widescreen TV will be announced.
