Jackpot Joy For Another Pools Fan

7 June 2013

A staggering 20th Pools supporter has scooped a £500 prize on our Goldline Lottery.

Pools fan Robert Jeffries was celebrating a Goldline Lottery windfall this week which he hopes will help him realise his Australian dream.

Robert this week became the twentieth Poolie to scoop the £500 jackpot since we started the Pools Goldline Lottery little over a year ago – and he knows exactly how he’s going to spend it!

“This is going straight in to my Australia Fund because my wife and I are hoping to move out there next year,” he explained.

“We’re in the process of applying for our VISAs and we’re going out to live in Perth where my wife Marie’s daughter and her family and living.

“We went out there in March and loved every minute so we just thought ‘let’s give it a shot’ and so we started making plans.”

They hope to be able to relocate Down Under within eighteen months but until then plumber Robert will still be a regular at Victoria Park.

“I’ve got my Season Ticket and I can’t wait for kick-off,” he said, after being presented with his £500 cheque by new Pools boss Colin Cooper.

“I’m really happy with the appointment and at £150 you can’t knock the Season Ticket deal so I will be there to cheer the lads on.

“I have been playing the Goldline Lottery since it started – I like the fact I am doing something that can help the Club bring through the next generation of Pools stars.

“Having said that, I didn’t expect to win – we never win anything!”
