Welcome to the Alicante Trophy (commonly just referred to as The Alicante). The competition is based on a game that I've played with my mates for the past 30 years whenever we meet for a pint during the footy season, for our game we pick ten or more games and try to predict the score of those games awarding points based on the correct result and the correct score. Our pub game is always played just for fun with the winner notionally being awarded the Alicante Trophy (see image), the original trophy has never and will never leave the wall of our mate Jim's house in Northampton and although it has never been held aloft by the winner that doesn't matter - just to be able to say "I've won the Alicante Trophy" is prize enough.
Sadly Jim died (17/07/2020) but his trophy and our memories of Jim live on and this revised version of the competition is dedicated to that trophy and to Jim.
