Pools Favourites For Southend Win

9 August 2013

The new title sponsors of the Football League were left licking their wounds after an opening round of fixtures which saw no fewer than 102 goals scored.

Tens of thousands of Sky Bet customers were counting their winnings as the big guns hit the ground running leading to football punters enjoying their best day ever with the Leeds-based firm.

One lucky customer won no less than £15,145 from a free £3 bet after placing a ten-fold Sky Bet Football League accumulator on Wigan, Watford, Bournemouth, Blackpool, Leeds, Yeovil, Nottingham Forest, QPR, Reading and Leicester.

With two minutes to go Leighton Allen from Droitwich looked set to collect nothing with only eight results going his way but Ed Upson’s 88th minute winner for Yeovil at Millwall gave him late hope. 

Then incredibly Luke Murphy’s strike, with the very last kick of the game, took all three points for Leeds at home to Brighton and helped the Aston Villa fan win his bet with odds of over 5000/1.

Remarkably another Sky Bet customer in Market Rasen backed the exact same teams in a £1 accumulator and collected £4226.

Less jubilant following the late drama at Elland Road was Sky Bet’s Head of Football Paul Wiggins. 

“It’s fair to say there weren’t many cheers in our office after the Murphy goal although we could just about hear Leighton’s even though we he was around 145 miles away,” he admitted.
