New Agent has Sports Bond Success
Uploaded Monday, 31st Dec, 2018 at 08:13

THE LAST Sports Bond draw of 2018 took place on Boxing Day. For Dylan Bell it will be memorable for some time, Dylan is the new Sports Bond agent for Ballykeel II.
After being introduced to his members over the past few weeks this was his first collection on his own and what a start for Dylan as he had a £50 major winner with pigeon fancier William Reynolds (A9399). Well done to Dylan and William. Sky Blue fan John Surgenor (A0902) enjoyed the Boxing Day derby with Coleraine and also because he was a £50 major winner. The only lady £50 winner this week was Myrtle McCartney (B2843) in Harryville.

The minor section saw Player Sponsor Christie Colhoun (A5541) win £10 on Maurice Anderson's agency, Ivor Brady (B1069) was a £10 winner on the agency of Richard McClean and Sky Blue fan and Sports Bond agent Reid McAuley (B2222) was a £10 winner on his own agency.

The Jackpot numbers of 4, 14, 16 and 26 saw no member allocated the Jackpot prize and so the Jackpot stands at £700 for this week.
