Watford's representative takes his first major honour by defeating AFC Bournemouth's MarcMarleyyy in the EA SPORTS FIFA 20 Grand Final

Thomas "Hashtag Tom" Leese is the 2019/20 ePremier League champion after a 2-1 Grand Final victory over AFC Bournemouth's Marc "MarcMarleyyy" Marley.

PlayStation4 champion Hashtag Tom put Watford ahead in the first leg on his "home console" with a well-taken Roberto Firmino goal.

But he was unable to extend his lead as Xbox champion Marley, who had knocked out the reigning champion Liverpool's Donovan "Fnatic Tekkz" Hunt in the previous round, stood firm, with the dream of a first major trophy still alive for both players.

Hashtag Tom made light of any supposed disadvantage in the second leg on Xbox One, however, making it 2-0 through a Paul Pogba strike.

A second-half penalty miss by Trezeguet for Hashtag Tom, followed by a low strike by Trezeguet for Marley, made it 2-1 on aggregate and a nervous finish for the Watford man.

But the No 3-ranked player in the world on PS4 held on to take home £20,000 in prize money, with Marley winning £10,000.
