With the start of the new league campaign, our team of writers are raring to go for another prediction league and this time they have decided to put their money where their mouths are. Each participant has agreed to pledge £10 each to take part in the prediction league this season and at the end of the season, the winner will be given the full pot to donate to their chosen charity.

As always it will be three points for predicting the correct result in a game and a point for the correct outcome, you can see each writer’s chosen charity displayed next to their name. First up is Institute supporter Richard, who has decided to play for The National Autistic Society.
