On his sixth attempt Kevin Appleton finally fulfilled a lifelong ambition to put his name on the famous Footcall trophy. Tonbridge Street Elite set a strong pace from the start with consistently good predictions that saw Kevin just pip Pornista FC to the top after the Group Stages. What was even more impressive was how he managed to maintain the top spot right through the Knockouts and predicting the two finalists of Holland and Spain sealed the deal. Some of the halfway front runners fell away and other players moved up in to the money bracket but correctly guessing Spain to win the World Cup saw Kevin clear by a comfortable 8 points. In a post-tournament interview he felt that this was long overdue and he now has Mick Mallion's record of two Footcalls firmly in his sights for 2012.
  • "This year's result was the reward for 10 years hard work of Footcalling, now I have discovered the winning formula I can look forward to several years of domination!"  Kevin Appleton

Simon Jenner took the brand new Footcall Vuvuzela Award for 2010 for securing last place amongst the 113 entrants. He gets to keep a mini football boot full of chocolates which also doubles as a money box. I think the look on his face tells you how thrilled he was!
