Late goals win plucky punter £84k from just a FIVER

Late drama at Northampton and Newport this weekend helped one Ladbrokes punter turn £5 into £84k.

The bookies can reveal a plucky Dundee punter correctly predicted the outcome of seven fixtures at the weekend.

Needing both teams to score in every game and Portsmouth, Colchester, Newport, Northampton, Solihull, Dundee United and Elgin all to win their matches, the customer had to wait for Andy Williams to net for the Cobblers in the 97th minute and Antoine Semenyo to score for Newport in the 98th minute before his bet finally landed.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “It was very much a weekend for favourite-backers in the lower leagues of football across the UK and while plenty of accas landed, this has to be the biggest and best we’ve seen for some time.”
