|A lucky chef will be able to afford to pay someone to cook for him this Christmas after winning almost a quarter of a million pounds from bookmakers William Hill with a £20 football bet.|
The man in his early thirties placed his bet at a William Hill branch in Exeter and successfully predicted the outcome of FOURTEEN football matches played at the weekend, to serve up a tasty takeaway worth £233,090.20.
”This is one of the biggest football bets ever landed” said William Hill spokesman Graham Sharpe,”The man will be able to prepare caviar and lobster for his Christmas lunch and wash it down with the finest champagne. He tells us he will buy a house with his winnings.”
The man selected the following teams to win their games - Chelsea, Celtic, Cheltenham, Swansea, Walsall, Airdrie, Gillingham, Hull, Coventry, Derby, Port Vale, Stockport, Preston - and he went for Blackburn to draw with Everton.
