Football Fan Wins More Than £20,000 From £11 Draw Accumulators

Football Fan Wins More Than £20,000 From £11 Draw Accumulators

A football fan scooped more than £20,000 from an £11 stake by backing seven draws.

Paul Henshaw, from Bamber Bridge near Preston, won £20,741 after placing a total of £11 on two accumulators, wagering that seven fixtures would end in draws.

The 39-year-old was inspired by his dad, who quite rightly pointed out that a draw is the only outcome which is correct from kick off.

Dad-of-two Paul said: "My dad was of the view - and always has been - that all matches start as a draw so something has to happen. This is by far my biggest ever win. What a brilliant end to the year and a nice start for 2021.

"It is just amazing and to think it only took me a couple of minutes to make my selections. My father who is 71 is a big golfer and I will be treating him to special putter that will cost £200 by way of thanks. That's the least I can do."

Paul backed Wolves vs Spurs, Crystal Palace vs Leicester, Chelsea vs Aston Villa and Liverpool vs West Brom to draw in the Premier League - with the latter prediction significantly boosting his returns.

He also had Woking and Eastleigh in the National League and Western United and Adelaide United in the A-League to draw, and both fixtures ended goalless.

Last of all was Dundonald Bluebell FC vs Queen's Park in the Scottish Cup, where a last minute equaliser saved his bet.

Paul, a manager in the meat industry, said: "I didn't check the results during Sunday and Monday but noticed I had much more money in my bank account than I expected.

"I went to bed thinking I would check in the morning which I did - and it was still there. I told my wife Ruth and like me she can't believe what's happened.

"It is only just beginning to register. We have not been able to celebrate properly because of the Covid situation - and she is still breast feeding our youngest. She is already checking out new clothes and things for the house.

"We were already thinking of Disneyland in Paris in the New Year as a treat for the children but now it's got to the one in Florida."

Betfred boss Fred Done praised the Preston North End and Blackburn Rovers fan (is that a thing?).

He said: "To win so much from such a small stake is remarkable. It was sharp for Paul, or more accurately his father Brian, to pick up on the number of draws which have occurred over the holiday period and to pick out seven is quite an achievement.

"Being in the meat industry Paul will understand if I say he's proved himself a cut above."
