Hats off to Sligoman Mark Burke, who’s the world’s best Premier League Fantasy Football player right now.

We don’t want to put the many Premier League Fantasy Football players out there into a bad mood but there is a lad in Sligo who is considerably better than you, and all your friends, at the game.

In fact, Mark Burke from Tubbercurry in Sligo is so good, he’s top of the overall league right now, meaning he is top of a pile that is 2,982,1163 teams high.

Last week Mark scored a frankly ridiculous 101 points, taking his tally after six weeks to a scary 454 points. If we make it to that number by Christmas we’ll be happy.

Here’s a snapshot of Mark’s current team, if you want follow a man who is clearly a genius at this stuff.

Mark’s feats featured on Ocean FM today and the lads there tell us that Mark doesn’t just spend his time pouring over cold, hard football stats.

A former Sligo hurling captain, Mark also plays football for Tubbercurry and he will be lining out for them against Tourlestrane in the Sligo senior final this weekend.

We assume he’ll be checking the scores of West Brom v Arsenal at half-time on Sunday.

Best of luck Mark, hope you can keep it up for the next 32 weeks.
