The 2017 Woodenbong Footy Tipping competition final week proved to be a cliffhanger and by no means a foregone conclusion. Johnny Lee had enjoyed a narrow lead for some time but was pipped by St George supporter Joyce Marsh by one point in the last count.
The winners are: 1st Joyce Marsh on 257, 2nd: Johnny Lee on 256, equal third Chris Mulcahy and Greg Gulliver on 255. The other end of the scale Odette Allwood on 164 points was assured of her entrance fee refunded.
Donna and Greg Gulliver have been running this comp for 17 years and it creates fierce competition and is a big talking point around the village.
Joyce was quoted as saying, “Look out next year, the Grand Final belongs to St George”.
