Free Giveaway for March – Win a large bottle of Hemp Oil Free!!!!

Last month's free giveaway for 6 free tubs of Yaoh hemp protein powder was chocca with entries and every single entry (bar one) was correct in naming Alfie Potter as the scorer of the 2nd goal for Havant and Waterloo as they embarrassed once mighty Liverpool in the FA cup recently.

In fact the question and theme proved so popular that we have decided to run another footie comp. Don't worry if you don't know anything about footie, the answer is very likely to be A but we wouldn't want to give anything away or make it too easy at this stage.

So – for this month's competition – to win one of 6 FREE Yaoh Hemp 500ml bottles of organic Hemp Seed Oil (worth £10.95 each!) please answer the following question.

Recently, Liverpool were completely humiliated once again in front of the whole nation live on TV when they were knocked out of the FA cup in front of a stunned and somewhat disgusted Anfield crowd when a team way below them battered them in the last minute and dumped them unceremoniously out the cup. Everton manager and worldwide internationally respected guru and inspiration Davey Moyes' former right hand man Simon Davey is the manager of the aforementioned 'giant' killers (although many would question the word giant) – so is that:

A) Barnsley
B) Bristol Rovers
C) Easton Cowboys (Downs league)
D) Everton reserves
E) Rafas '5 points' Beneathus Rejects

Answers by email please to – don't forget your name and address in case you win!
