The Footstock Leaderboard: Week 1

The leaderboard is back, with a new home for the new year! Congratulations again to maddogbeast who finished top of the last leaderboard. Now it’s time to wipe the slate clean and start again, and see if maddogbeast will retain their title as the king of contests or whether we will see a new contender for the crown emerge.

The leaderboard will have the same points as the previous format, which you can see below:

Now for that awkward moment when you’ve had your best weekend on Footstock and have to do the write up on a leaderboard you just restarted and now sit top of …


ben_pz tops the new leaderboard after 7 top tens, including 5 top-five finishes. This month, tickets for the January Monster are given out for the top 5 places, meaning ben_pz gained 5 over the weekend.

Footstock Big Tree seems to have found the formula to success. Despite rarely appearing on the leaderboard up to December, he finished off strongly and ended in a respectable joint 49th place. Over the first weekend of the new leaderboard, his name was everywhere and he claimed a remarkable 1st, 2nd, and 3rd in the Gold contests. bigtree finished on 50 points and sits 2nd on the leaderboard.

fscat came 18th on the last leaderboard and is off to a fast start in this edition, with a 1st and 2nd to claim third place on 40 points.

fplgreenarrow (previous leaderboard rank 48th) and gunner frodo (no previous rank) claimed a 1st and a 4th to claim joint fourth place with 33 points.

Well done to everyone who placed this week, and best of luck for the next round of Premier League fixtures!

Ben joined Footstock in May 2020 and has been hooked ever since. As a football nut and former professional poker player, Ben found Footstock was the perfect concoction of his love of sport, stats and competition. He now spends his days dreaming of one day finishing top of the Footstock leaderboard he makes.
