From humble beginnings, Jamie Sawyer is rapidly becoming the player to beat in SPAGames Premier Predictions.
Jamie Sawyer – The One to Beat
Jamie Sawyer’s first foray into Premier Predictions was during the 2014/15 season. Chelsea were busy wrestling the Premier League trophy from the hands of defending champions Manchester City while Jamie was impressing nobody finishing Game 01 in seventeenth before improving (hardly at all) with a fifteenth place finish in Game 02 – hardly the stuff of legends, but his SPAGames journey had started.
In the five Games since that inauspicious start Jamie has really come of age – his last five positions have been (in game order) 4th, 6th, 1st, 5th, 1st. Those two wins in the last three Games have also included three Player-of-the-Month in the last five months, really making him the player to beat at the moment.
In the last four Games, Jamie’s total winnings are an impressive £228 – a net gain of over £170 in two seasons. His winnings include a One-Round-Wonder as well as four Player-of-the-Months and of course his two wins.

“I thought I was going to throw it away in the last week of fixtures. It all came down to last game [West Brom v Arsenal on New Years Eve] to see who would finish top between me and Martin [Hayman]. Martin had predicted 2-1 to Arsenal and I’d gone for 2-0. Well, the game seemed to be heading for a goalless draw so I was feeling pretty confident that I would finish top but that changed in the last 10 mins when both teams scored to make it 1-1 – the last few minutes were quite tense especially if Arsenal had scored as I would have lost top spot. I was very pleased when the final whistle went. I’m looking forward to getting Game 2 under way to see if I can retain the number 1 spot.”
