Man Wins £60,000 After Jack Grealish Loss Time Goal Against Brighton
An 89th-minute Aston Villa goal that put Newcastle United top of the Championship has won a football fan more than £60,000.
The unnamed punter placed a £10 bet on seven different teams winning seven different leagues in England and Scotland.
Jessica Bridge from bookmakers Ladbrokes said accumulator bets “normally come agonisingly close but hit the crossbar in extra time”.
“Our customer now has 60,000 reasons to thank Jack Grealish for his vital goal last weekend,” she said.
The man, who lives in the Scottish Borders, has preferred to keep his identity private.
The sevenfold accumulator – which would only pay out if all the predictions were correct – earned him £60,734.38.
