One Scottish punter is celebrating after Arbroath’s dramatic title victory helped him scoop a £60,000 win.
The unnamed gambler claimed a five figure haul after his pre-season accumulator proved successful.
The middle-aged winner, who has asked to remain anonymous, placed a £10 seven team bet at the start of the football season.
As well as the Red Lichties’ title triumph, Celtic, Hibs, Livingston,Sheffield United, Portsmouth and Newcastle all claimed their domestic titles.
By predicting all seven results the punter’s lucky line helped him claim £60,734.38.
With Arbroath having done the needful on Saturday, Jack Grealish’s last minute goal for Aston Villa against Brighton, crowning Newcastle champions in the process, sealed the ambitious gambler’s fate.
Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes said: “Every year thousands of punters place cross league accumulators which normally come agonisingly close but hit the cross bar in extra time.
“Our customer now has 60,000 reasons to thank Jack Grealish for his vital goal last weekend.”
