Shropshire Punter Lives The Magic of the FA Cup

A 50 pence bet on a string of FA Cup results on Sunday produced a £14,000 payout for a Shropshire based customer of He combined Swansea beating Man United 2-1, Chelsea beating Derby 2-0, Sunderland seeing off Carlisle by 3-1 and Pymouth to draw 2-2 with Port Vale.

Those results were enough to secure the bumper payout from his Lucky 31 bet, but if Liverpool had scored one more goal at home to Oldham the win would have smashed through £100,000 as that was the fifth of his forecasts on a day that most bettors only ever dream of.

"El Hadji Ba's third for Sunderland came in injury time so this was really down to the wire but fair play to our intrepid backer, it was some achievement," said Betbright spokesman Brian Farrell. "We will be watching out for his selections in the fourth round, and with 2014 being a World Cup Year, who knows we may have England's answer to that German Octopus from the 2010 tournament.

5.0 Chelsea, Man City
5.5 Arsenal
6.0 Liverpool
8.4 Everton
