A tasty win!

A football fan from Carlow must have had their crystal ball out at the weekend because their monster 10-team accumulator clicked and they pocketed a tasty sum of €6,980.29.

After analysing Saturday's Premier League and Championship fixtures, the punter headed to their local BoyleSports shop and placed €5 on 10 match betting selections.

The selections were Manchester City (2/9), Brighton (5/6), Crystal Palace (13/8), Manchester United (4/9), Wolves (8/15), West Ham (11/10), Hull (7/5), Reading (13/8) and Stoke (5/4) all to win with Tottenham v Arsenal to end in a draw finishing off the accumulator at odds of 13/5.

Unbelievably, all 10 selections clicked seeing the Carlow native defy the odds and bank an impressive €6,980.29 for their efforts.

Aoife Heffron, spokesperson for BoyleSports, said: "We are thrilled to see another one of our customer scoop a large sum as a result of their intuitive accumulator on Saturday's football fixtures.

"We hope our Carlow customer enjoys spending every cent of their fantastic €6,980.29 windfall."

She added: "It was a weekend for the accumulators with a number of large accums clicking seeing over €70,000 paid out on accumulators with 10 teams or more alone off the back of Saturday's football action."
