THE cancellation of all football could give the pools companies a huge lift as the pools panel will sit and predict the results of 49 English and Scottish matches that should have made up numbers 1-49.

This weekend that includes everything from Wolves vs Bournemouth to Cove vs Albion Rovers.

I don't know anyone who still plays the pools but for me growing up it was part of life with coupons being delivered to your house then picked up a few days later after randomly being filled in – everyone attempting to hit the jackpot with eight score draws.

In the 1960s a win of £150k was the equivalent of £3.5million these days so not to be sniffed at.

Anyway I've signed up and giving it a bash this weekend.

The classic line was picking 10 draws – eight score draws correct out of 10 would hit the jackpot or give you a share of it. Of course odds on this happening were in their millions and some Saturdays there weren't as many as eight score draws.

Your best eight selections 3pts score draw, 2pts no-score draw and 1-t home or away) are used to calculate your final points score. Rhe maximum number of points is 24 which guarantees the biggest dividend). Players with 23 or 22 points (and sometimes fewer) will also win a share of the cash prize pool.

10 Draws (pools number in brackets)

  • Burnley vs Watford (1)
  • Hull vs Middlesbrough (3)
  • Wigan vs Stoke (9)
  • Fleetwood vs Rotherham (12)
  • Southend vs Bolton (16)
  • Mansfield vs Walsall (21)
  • Scunthorpe vs Salford (26)
  • Hamilton vs Hibs (29)
  • Livingston vs Aberdeen (31)
  • Dunfermline vs Morton (35)

Pools Panel Results

Score Draws: 3, 10, 12, 20, 25, 31, 42, 43.

No Score Draws: 7, 13, 26, 35, 37.

My Points Total: 14 – including 2 score draws and 2 no score draws.
