Born in the south east of Ireland, Simon put his life-long love of football to good use when he started a successful independent blog in 2010. That opened up an alternative route to a career in journalism, and having had work published across a number of sites and publications, Simon joined the staff at Spotlight Sports Group in 2018.
One lucky bettor enjoyed an incredible weekend of Premier League punting when they turned £2 into £5.8k with a sensational football nine-fold acca win!
The Ladbrokes customer correctly predicted every result in the Premier League, which included three draws, across Saturday and Sunday in a super showcase of top flight betting.
After staking just £2, the ambitious acca returned a mammoth £5, 822.75 by the time the final ball was kicked in the weekend’s final Premier League clash between Sheffield United and Liverpool.
Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “Hats off to our plucky punter who somehow managed to correctly guess the result of every Prem game this weekend.”
He added: “Brighton missed two penalties and had a controversial goal disallowed, while Man United may have felt hard done by having not been given a penalty – not that our punter minds one bit!”
