£2 8-fold acca bags punter £20k

£2 8-fold acca bags punter £20k Well £21k to be precise. A football fan with an ambitious eye decided to place a small £2 bet on an eight-fold football accumulator late last month. Many would see this as being a ‘pie in the sky’ type bet, on account that the punter opted for 8 x ‘to be winning at half-time’ bets, which is clearly something that’s difficult to get right that many times over.

However thanks in part to a last gasp goal (at 45 mins) by Billy Sharp against Wigan moments before the half time interval, everything slotted neatly into place for the lucky individual, winning him the sizeable sum of £21,224.72

Here are the eight parts of the punter’s acca:


Nottingham Forest (v Leeds) – 4/1

Peterborough (v Burton) – 5/2

Colchester (v Lincoln) – 27/10

Wrexham (v Chesterfield) – 13/5

AFC Fylde (v Maidenhead United) – 15/8

Newport County (v Morecambe)  – 31/20

Sunderland (v Southend) – 17/10

Sheffield United (v Wigan) – 13/10



TOTAL RETURNS – £21,224.72
