Fantasy Football round-up

11 April 2013

Derby County fan Matthew Grundy is the latest Phones 4u Fantasy Football Manager of the Month to lift silverware in front of a packed npower Championship ground.

Matthew was presented with his trophy beside the Pride Park pitch on Saturday by raiding Rams right-back John Brayford.

Phones 4u Fantasy Football is the official fantasy game of the Football League and Matthew racked up more points than anyone else in February.

Matthew also won tickets to Derby's clash with Ipswich Town and £500, after his team '10 men' scored 107 points for the month.

Prizes weren't on Matthew's mind when he entered the game, however - his aim at the start of the season was simply to get one over local rivals Nottingham Forest.

He said: "I initially entered Phones 4u Fantasy Football to prove that people from Derby know more about football than our Nottingham friends.

"It is a very nice bonus to win this award for the whole of the UK."

Derby defender Richard Keogh has been an ever-present in Matthew's team this season and the Republic of Ireland international has responded with three goals, three assists, and seven clean sheets.

Jamie Ward is currently the Rams' leading light in Phones 4u Fantasy Football and the clinical forward's tally of 52 points, for 12 goals and eight assists, is the eighth best in the game.
