Free Competition Win a 454gm Tub of Hemp protein powder!!

We had a huge response to our free giveaway in January, and the 6 winners of a bottle of Yaoh hemp massage oil will receive their gifts before Valentine's Day in mid February. Thanks to everyone who entered and this month we are giving away 6 tubs of our gorgeous 454gm organic Canadian 49% hemp protein powder to 6 lucky winners drawn from everyone who emails us the correct answer to this month's simple question. It's another football question, so if you don't know the answer, have a guess and it might be A. Winners will be drawn on Feb 29th.

Football minnows Havant and Waterloo recently embarrassed once mighty Liverpool in front of a packed Anfield and also on TV in front of millions in the FA Cup 4th round. Havant went one nil up and then two one up when a Roy of the Rovers type character with curly hair scored for Havant to shame the red half of Liverpool, to the delight of all Havant and Everton supporters everywhere. The name of the scorer for Havant's second goal was:

A) Alfie Potter
B) Dixie Dean
C) Kevin Keegan
D) Dirk Kuyt (probably not he doesn't score very often)
