Uploaded Monday, 6th Jan, 2020 at 07:35


DURING 2019 Sports Bond was successful in recruiting a few new agents. For one of these Alex Beverland the last draw of 2019 was memorable as he had a double success.
Alex had a major £50 winner with William Donnelly (A2350) and a £10 minor winner with Robert Wilson (A6983). Well done Alex we are hoping for good things from you in 2020. Out in Craigywarren Raymond Lynn (A0791) was a Major £50 winner. Down at the Horse and Jockey, the patrons were celebrating £50 major win for Eddie Harris (A2626). Completing this weeks all male winners were Bryan Donnelly (A4025) and Dylan Bell (A5513).

No Jackpot was allocated with the no's 1, 4, 11 and 28 and so a very healthy £500 is on offer for the first week of 2020.

A Happy New year to all our Sports Bond agents and Members.
