Ladbrokes punter collects £21,000 win from 8-fold acca

Big win thanks to late Blades goal


Usually, the big football acca wins that you hear about come from some dramatic goal after the 90th minute securing a missing leg of a bet. A customer at Ladbrokes over the weekend had taken a shortcut to an acca by selecting eight teams to all be winning at half time.

There was still relative late drama though. On the Saturday 3pm matches, whistles were being blown up and down the country and the punter only had seven of their eight selections winning.

But then Billy Sharp popped up in the final minute of the half for Sheffield United at Bramall Lane against Wigan to save the bet.

Elsewhere, halftime leads for Nottingham Forest, Peterborough United, Colchester United, Wrexham, AFC Fylde, Newport County and Sunderland ensured the punter pocketed a whopping £21,224.72.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “What a weekend our plucky punter had. Sheffield United Billy Sharp played a huge part in this success story but full credit goes to the brains behind this bet!”
