Nightmare is a dream come true

Since January, IFAs have been battling it out in the Scottish Life Fantasy Football League. Featuring all the Premiership matches, this fantasy league has been fought just as fiercely as the Premiership and we can now announce the top team.

The overall winner is Simon Bonnett, manager of Nightmare Returns, who has won a fantastic trip of a lifetime to Japan to watch England

Argentina on Friday. Included in the prize is a five-day stay in Tokyo so he can enjoy the sights and culture of Japan&#39s capital as well as enjoying the Sapporo stadium to experience the thrill of live World Cup football.

We have also had three managers of the month, each winning two Premiership match tickets plus a year&#39s free subscription to Sky Sports, including a Premiership Plus season ticket for 2002/03. They are:

Manager for February – Paul Wilby

Manager for March – Brian Butcher

Manager for April – Michael Houghton

Congratulations to all our winners.
