A massive 99-point haul from Carl Sample's #uptheburn side saw him haul long-time leader Simon Cooke off the top of the pile.

As the race for our £150 cash prize hots up, Cooke, who had led the charge for most of the season, was leapfrogged by Sample this week.

Sample's side grabbed 99 points as Palace gloveman Wayne Hennessy, 18, Spurs defender Toby Alderweireld, 15, Jamie Vardy, 13 and Gylfi Sigurdsson, 11, all hauled in double figures for his side.

That haul took Sample onto 1,925 points, just ahead of Cooke on 1,909, after he claimed 62 points.

The pressure is also on Cooke from Dan Griffiths, who moved level on points with him after claiming 78 points.

In a high-scoring week, several managers also claimed three-figure point totals, Josh Lawrance getting 105 points, Tom Wood taking 103 points, Nick Kinrade 102 and S Rossiter 101.

With just a few weeks remaining, the battle is also hotting up at the wrong end of the table.

Edgehill FC and Scalby Juniors supremo Alec Coulson is rooted to the foot of the table on 1,012, with some big-hitting names just above him.

Geoff Osguthorpe is just above Coulson in 211th spot with Craig Rackham 210th.
