BASINGSTOKE Town long-time supporter Connor Eccott is running a new fund raising initiative called Last Man Standing which is currently in final stages of the second game.

He is keen to get more football fans involved as the money raised goes to the Community Club's Boost the Budget fund. The last man standing will win themselves 50% of the money taken in. The other 50% is being donated towards the Basingstoke Town Community Clubs ‘Boost the Budget’ fund!

The way it works is that every person in the game picks one team in the premier league they think will win in the coming weekend (you will receive notification in the week leading up to the set of fixtures).

If the teams wins they go through to the next round, if they lose or draw they are knocked out.

They then have a to pick a different team every week, you can never choose the same team until the current game is ended.

If there is no one winner - the last man standing - then the prize money rolls over to the next game

Entry is £10 for a whole game until it is won or rolls over and payments are made via bank transfer by the Thursday before the game starts.

Each week participants will receive the list of names entered and which team everyone has picked. This ensures there is no fixing the competition.

Currently there are five fans left in the second game, run by Connor, chasing a prize fund of £265. BTCFC have received a donation from Last Man Standing of £265 so far since the competition has been running. As the club are in a vital transition period after newly forming, every little helps and will contribute towards keeping football in the town!

If you would like to register your interest for the next competition please email or text 07931923720 and you will be contacted when the current game has ended.
