YM Footy Tipping - Winners Announced
The team at Yirra Mia earlier this year entered into the annual Footy tipping competition ready to kick goals but ultimately unsure of how the AFL season would play out during Covid. Fresh off the back of the competition's success in 2019 ... round one got underway back in March and the competitiveness was at an all time high in a bid to be crowned this year's champion and take home the $150 for the winner!
Whilst round one was completed in line with the proposed fixture ... the season was then impacted by Covid with the team being caught holding the ball between March and June until round two was able to resume safely. Time did nothing to diminish the eagerness amongst the group and the competition continued on in wonderful spirit. With the news that season would be shortened from 23 to 18 rounds this meant that the prize money awarded to the weekly round winner was able to be put back into the prize pool and allocated to a new initiative, a unique grand final competition where tipsters were asked to submit who they thought would win the grand final and by what margin, with the closest tipster securing the bonus prize!
This years main prize winners were:
1st - Jason Burgess
2nd - Evan Cox
3rd - Belinda Shipp
Grand Final Bonus - Mogan Jenyns
Congratulations to all winners and thank you to all those who entered and made it the resounding success that it was. May the footy be back bigger and better than ever in 2021!
