A Bexleyheath pub is running the fantasy football league

A Bexleyheath pub will be running a fantasy football league with a difference next month, as it hosts the Not So Fantasy Football League.

Fans can win £500 for picking the worst performing players at next month’s Euro 2016 tournament in France.

The Yacht, a Flaming Grill pub, joined together with legendary commentator and pundit Chris Kamara as he handed out some top tips to pick the best of a bad bunch.

And Kammy, as he’s known to football fans, said: “With so many teams in this year’s competition we’re sure to see some amazing own goals, gaffs and rash challenges.

“By focusing on those players that aren’t usually headlining the European stage the Flaming Grill Not So Fantasy Football League gives Bexleyheath fans a chance to get a more rounded view of European football.”

The winner will be announced after the final on July 10.

General manager at the pub, Sue Barnes added: “With 51 games over four weeks this is the biggest European football tournament to date.

“With more countries than ever before, we thought what better way to support Bexleyheath football fans than to give them a reason to follow some of the lesser known teams and players.”

Kammy’s top tips ahead of the tournament, which starts on June 10, are:

Form: Look for players whose failings are legendary, with strikers who couldn’t hit the back of a barn let alone the net, and keepers who couldn’t catch a cold.

Obscurity: Look for players more commonly associated with the lower leagues than the Premier League, whose nation’s better known for its association with blood sucking vampires than footballing prowess.

Part timers: If your chosen player spends as much time in his Mr Whippy van as on the pitch, he’s likely to be a sure bet for the Not So Fantasy Football League.

Longevity: While it might be tempting to pack your team with some of Albania’s best footballing talent, remember the competition lasts beyond the group stages, so a weaker player in a better established team could pay dividends later on.
