Sky Bet Transfer Fund winner to be revealed in final draw tomorrow

9 July 2015

Ten fans have a chance to win a £250,000 prize for their Football League club in tomorrow’s Sky Bet Transfer Fund final draw.

The lucky finalists win find out if they’ve won the transfer kitty for their side – and £5,000 for themselves – when the draw is made at the Sky Sports Studios shortly after midday.

Ten finalists were selected at random from more than 100,000 Sky Bet customers who entered into the Transfer Fund competition.

The 10 fans are: 

1. Richard Jones - Derby County 
2. David Ward - Peterborough United 
3. Dean Goddard - Carlisle United 
4. Spencer Todd - Ipswich Town 
5. Mr Mawani - Cardiff City 
6. Jason Cusworth - Rotherham United 
7. Sandeep Bharj - Coventry City 
8. Dan Ward - Newport County 
9. Conor Smyth - Bolton Wanderers 
10. Richard Milne - Southend United 

In the first Sky Bet Transfer Fund draw back in December 2014, Nottingham Forest fan Shaun Lander won his team £250,000. Forest were able to bring in Todd Kane and Gary Gardner on loan as a result.

Tomorrow’s draw will be hosted by top Sky Sports News HQ presenters Jim White and Natalie Sawyer. White said: “It is going to be really exciting to see another fan win £250,000 for their Football League club.

“You can only imagine how the chairman, manager and players of the winning club are going to react when they hear the news. And the lucky winning fan collects £5,000. So we are going to have a room full of extremely happy people.”

Fans took part in the contest by linking their Sky Bet account to their favourite Football League club. For every £1 bet they generated one token towards the draw – and a chance to be in tomorrow’s final draw.

Edwin Martin, head of sponsorship at Sky Bet, said: “The £250,000 Transfer Fund has proven extremely popular with Football League fans up and down the country. 

“Every fan who entered had a chance of making a huge difference to their club next season.” 

The winning club will be able to use the £250,000 on transfer fees, loan fees or towards new players’ wages.
