No sooner is the season over, and the Fantasy Euros competiton kicks off.
I've created a league on the official UEFA Euro 2016 website, entry pin is 45274PLL.
It'll be no surprise to hear Rob is the current holder, having won it 4 years ago in his first ever SFP competition, prior to his debut SFP season.
Michael Lucchesi became the first manager to have won all four domestic honours as he claimed the FFACup at the weekend.
It's Lucchesi's 5th honour in 4 seasons:
"Honoured. Would be lying if I said it wasn't my main target this year? Can I retire to SFP punditry now?"
Rob Dale becomes the 13th Manager to get his hands on the SFP trophy, as Jolly Rogers become the 21st team to win the SFP title.
It follows two seasons of being a bridesmaid and not quite the bride, having been pipped to the post by Just The Tip in 2014 and FC Wheelers in 2015.
Manager Dale, who also smashed the record for the final points total, and with the best average finishing position record in SFP history, was delighted:
"Absolutely chuffed with winning the league this season - has been been the aim since taking part and after a couple of near misses it will be great to finally get my hands on the trophy. Many heroes in the squad but Ozil, Mahrez, Vardy get a special mention. To not spend any money on two of them is crazy - I'll be lucky to repeat that in another auction but the research will begin shortly for 16/17 and the defence of the title!"
After 180 minutes and 5 goals across two ties, Ross Peggs has won the 2016 SFP Cup
Pritchard's dream of a first ever SFP honour was extinguished by a single Jason Puncheon goal, which in turn gave Peggs his 3rd SFP Cup Win, and his 6th SFP honour:
"Fifth and a cup win. That should be enough to keep me in a job, even though SFP legend Chubby Brown has made no attempt to hide his desire to take over under a bushel. I thank the fans for their unconditional support, including those who are booing me right now."
"The only thing I need to add is that the fans have expectations that are far too high: I will tell you what is acceptable and what is not, because then I have an easier job. Over the summer, I will spend time in Amsterdam to assess the situation. I might return; I might not - it really depends how messy it gets."
In the 50Shades camp. Pritchard Senior reflected on his best ever season:
"Very pleased with the season, especially given the amount of injuries we had. A shame we didn't win the cup, but not the end of the world! Something to build on!!"
With Jolly Rogers securing the title on paper months ago, the showpiece final weekend switches focus to the SFP Cup for the first ever time.
After Aguero and Firminho cancelled out goals by Defoe and Sanchez, 50 Shades Of O'Shea face Shake It Off this weekend in the first ever SFP Cup Final replay.
Most goals after 90 minutes will win the tie, and if it remains level at the end, the fastest goal will win the tie. If it turns out as a no-score draw, then penalties will decide the destiny of this seasons trophy.
The penultimate weekend of the 2015/16 season hosts the SFP Cup final, as Pritchard Senior looks to claim his first ever SFP silverware.
After 43 matches, since the draw in Singapore to the Semi Final showdowns a week or two ago, we reach the 13th SFP Cup final. The two qualifying teams have scored in every round, bar one where Pritchard drew a blank, so the final is set up for a goal fest. Aguero and Sanchez will be key.
This marks Pritchards 16th SFP season, in which time he has never finished better than mid-table or indeed reached a major cup final, let alone ever won a cup tournament. But that could all change this weekend. Just by being in the final, he has banked his first ever pay day, with a guaranteed £25 for reaching the final.
Standing in his way is manager Peggs, who will be playing in his 5th SFP Cup final, and will be looking for his 3rd Cup win.
Underdogs Atletico Magicmen had a barnstorming weekend to snatch the 5ASide Cup from favourites Jolly Rogers.
Both managers fielded strong sides for the first cup final of the season, but two goals from Troy Deeney and one from Andros Townsend (who had replaced Eden Hazard at the last minute) were enough to give manager Jermy a 29:17 win and his first 5ASide tournament honour.
Jermy was suitably chuffed:
"I always knew my squad was worthy of recognition. We really were only a player or two away from a top four finish this season, and I was always convinced we had those players in the squad. But surprising lack of form from key players and long term injuries to a couple of others has left us playing catch-up all season. The five I chose to represent us at the weekend showed we had the quality in the group to be higher placed in the league. This is the first time Iíve won a 5ASide Cup, so it has sweetened an otherwise disappointing campaign. Maybe we'll get the bus out for a parade."
Dale, who was robbed of a potential league and cup double was gracious in defeat:
"Congrats to Magicmen on their cup win - worthy winners. However, I do feel slightly unfortunate to come across both Jermy Senior [5ASide Cup] and Peggs [SFP Cup] in top form! Oh well, can't complain too much"
Ross Peggs took his first manager of the month trophy of the season after scoring a whopping 238 in April.
It was a point haul that took him from 5th to 3rd in the table, and looks to have secured him a top 4 finish. It is also the 2nd highest monthly score of alltime.
Elsewhere, Rob Dale and Lawrence Baynes continue their good form, both breaking the 200 barrier again, with Adam Walters only two points shy of doing the same.
Those struggling last month were the ususal suspects in Martin and Quentin, and surprise entry Michael, who also saw his Spartak side slide out of the top 4 for the first time since October. Matthew also had a poor month. mostly down to playing a strong side in the 5ASide Cup Semi Final and Final.
