98th-minute winner wraps up £84,000 accumulator for Ladbrokes punter

One Ladbrokes punter is celebrating after a last-gasp goal turned a £5 punt into an £84,843.73 winner this past weekend.

The unnamed customer from Dundee in Scotland stuck a fiver down on a seven-fold accumulator consisting of selections from the Match Result & Both Teams To Score market last Saturday, and he appeared to be out of luck as only five of his picks appeared to be coming in as the matches approached full-time.

But as fourth officials across the United Kingdom lit up the little red lights on their LED boards to signal added time, the Ladbrokes punter’s luck was in.

Andy Williams netted a 97th minute winner for Northampton Town as they beat Forest Green Rovers, and Antoine Semenyo then struck for Newport County in the 98th minute as the snatcheds a 2-1 win over Stevenage at Rodney Parade.

That ensured the bettor scooped a grand total of £84,843.73 from his £5 wager.

“It was very much a weekend for favourite-backers in the lower leagues of football across the UK,” Ladbrokes Alex Apati told Bettingpro.com.

“And while plenty of accumulators landed, this has to be the biggest and best we’ve seen for some time.”
