Mystery Punter Leaves £31k Unclaimed

Mystery Punter Leaves £31k Unclaimed
A mystery William Hill customer has so far left a whopping jackpot win of over £31,000 unclaimed. The spectacular win is the result of a 50 pence stake on a football bet that consisted of nine selections resulting in a draw.

The bet was placed in Arbroath on Friday 10th August on the next day’s matches. The punter backed an array of draws including the Hull v Rotherham clash in the Capital One Cup which went to extra time and other games with teams leagues apart. Aldershot helped bump his winnings up by gaining an unlikely draw at Molineux against Wolves at odds of 3/1.

“The close to 64,000/1 shot is a fantastic win and an amazing start to the season for someone but to leave it unclaimed since Saturday is rather unusual. We are not sure if this customer has gone on holiday or if he just doesn’t realise how lucky he has been but we will be more than happy to pay out when the penny drops,” said William Hill spokesman Mark Young.

Gareth, Gunn And Sven – Will They Stay Or Will They Go ?

WILL WIN, LOSE AND DRAW BOSSES STAY AT CLUBS ALL SEASON ?
THREE HIGH profile bosses had very different starts to the season. Gareth Southgate’s Middlesbro draw with Sheffield United and fans appeared less than impressed; Norwich’s Bryan Gunn oversaw a humiliating 1-7 defeat to local rivals Colchester; while Sven Goran Erikkson saw Notts County start off with a 5-0 drubbing of Bradford.
William Hill now make Southgate 5/6 to survive, 5/6 to leave by last day season; Gunn 4/9 to go, 13/8 to survive; Sven 6/4 to leave, 1/2 to stay.
‘These three managers are all under pressure for very different reasons but their futures are fascinatingly poised. Southgate seems finally to have used up his goodwill with supporters; Norwich’s result will haunt them for decades and heap pressure on one of the most popular figures ever associated with the club while the more successful County are the more likely bigger clubs are to come courting Sven’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.

LATEST William Hill LEAGUE ONE ODDS….5/2 Leeds; 7/1 Charlton; 8/1 Huddersfield; 10 MK Dons; 12 Norwich; 14 Brighton; Colchester; Millwall; 16 Brentford; 25 Southampton; 33 Gillingham.

LEAGUE TWO…3/1 Notts Co; 6/1 Rotherham; 10/1 Bournemouth; 11/1 Shrewsbury; 14 Bury; Northampton; Rochdale.

WILL UNITED BEN START ENGLAND’S FIRST WORLD CUP FINALS MATCH?
WITH BEN FOSTER likely to get the nod to replace injured Edwin van der Saar in Manchester United’s goal, William Hill are offering him at 7/1 to start in goal for England when they play their first match of the 2010 World Cup finals.Team-mate Michael Owen is 6/4 with Hills to get in the World Cup squad, 1/2 not to, and both will hope to do well in the Community Shield this weekend for which Hills make Chelsea 8/11 favourites to lift the trophy with United at Even money.
Owen is 7/4 to score in 90mins play, 6/1 to open the scoring and 10/1 to net two or more.
90 minute odds: 17/10 United; 2/1 draw; 7/5 Chelsea.
