Chester Train Shop Punter Choo Choo Chooses 15 Winners And Bags Over £20k

A man in his mid forties has scooped a massive payout after he breezed into the William Hill shop at Chester train station and placed a £3, 15 team football accumulator. The man, who spoke with a Southern accent, told the girl working behind the counter that he was off on holiday on Easter Sunday with some of his winnings leaving it unknown as to whether he lived in Chester or just visiting the city for the day.

From his £3 stake, the lucky punter bagged himself £20,343.96, beating odds of over 6780/1 to land his massive payout.

“It is hard enough to pick one winner so for him to get 15 is absolutely incredible,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “When he collected his winnings on Saturday evening, he told the assistant that he had decided that he was going to go on holiday for a week and mull over what else he was going to spend his winnings on.”

The games that were played over Good Friday and the following Saturday included Celtic who won the SPL title by defeating Kilmarnock 6-0, Chelsea who defeated Wigan with two contentious goals and virtually the last kick of the game and Reading, who moved top of the Championship by beating 10 man Leeds with two goals in the last six minutes of the match.

The shop in the train station has been open for two years and is the first betting shop in Chester that punters get to when they arrive for the yearly race meetings that start in May.

Nothing Fishy About Grimsby Punter’s £100k Win

A Grimsby based Manchester United fan was celebrating this weekend – and not just because his side managed to maintain their 100% record in the Premier League but because he won over £100,000 from an £8 bet with William Hill. The mystery man, who wishes to remain anonymous, selected 12 sides to win on his football accumulator and all duly obliged. The 37 year old punter who regularly has an accumulator at the weekend, had never hit the jackpot until Saturday and scooped £101,647.97 when Leeds, Crawley, Hearts, Tranmere, Hull, Peterborough, Sheffield Wednesday, Morecambe, Shrewsbury, Macclesfield, Gillingham and Sheffield Utd all won.

“It is incredibly difficult to pick even one winner, so to have 12 sides all come in is quite a feat and one that was priced at over 12,700/1,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “With a haul of over £100,000, he could spend the rest of the season following United home and away.”

Winning bet:

£8 12 fold

7/10 Leeds
4/6 Crawley

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.

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.
