Supporter wins big after backing Blues
Pompey supporter Tom Beeson has been named the Sky Bet League Two Fan of the Month for February.
After the Blues came from 2-0 down to beat Tranmere 3-2 in February, he was a happy fan.
But when Tom realised the result meant his 50p 10-fold accumulator had come in and won him £6,600, he was over the moon!
The acca included seven Sky Bet Football League clubs – Pompey, Norwich, Sheffield United, Sheffield Wednesday, Middlesbrough, Derby and Brentford.
Tom said: “It was a mad last 10 minutes, with Pompey scoring three late on, Norwich and Bristol Rovers scoring late and Millwall’s last-minute winner.
“I have been saying to my partner Jenna for years that sooner or later a big one will come in and the winnings have allowed us to pay for a family holiday.
“I am delighted to receive the Sky Bet Fan of the Month Award and be Pompey’s first winner.
“I have supported the club since my dad first took me in 1991. I got the bug and had a season ticket for 10 years before children brought an end to that.”
Blues bos Andy Awford said: “Congratulations to Tom on winning this award and I'm glad our result won him a lot of money.
“It has completed a successful few weeks for us – Manager of the Month, Player of the Month and now Fan of the Month!”
If Tom won the £250,000 Sky Bet Transfer Fund for Pompey, he would buy Marc Richards from Northampton Town. Bet at www.skybet.com/pompey to increase our chances of claiming the prize.
