Ian Wins £1000 Sports Bond Jackpot
Uploaded Sunday, 7th Oct, 2018 at 22:08

A KNOCK on his door was recalled by Ian Morton on Saturday in the Boardroom at Ballymena United. When he answered the door there was Brian Thompson and Zach Barr on a canvass for Sports Bond in the Paddock area.
Ian and his wife Marion were happy to join up as members and help support not only Sports Bond but also Ballymena United. Now a few years later Ian was in the Boardroom to collect a Sports Bond cheque for a £1000 Jackpot, both Ian and his wife have won before but never a Jackpot. Also there was his agent Maurice Anderson, part of a hard working Sports Bond network. It took Maurice a few years to have a maximum Jackpot winner but now Ian becomes his third £1000 Jackpot winner. For the record the winning numbers were 5, 6, 9 and 11, Ian was delighted to receive his cheque from Ballymena United Chairman John Taggart and was a guest of the club for the match with Newry City. A great weekend for Ian as it was the clubs "home coming" fixture.

Patterson was a popular name on the winners sheet last week as Lily Patterson (A1935) was a £50 winner on the Seven Towers agency and Laura Patterson (A0663) was a £10 winner on the agency of David Brown. For Paul McCormick (C6990) it was to be his second £50 win in just over a year and George Cooke (A4315) also won £50, George is one of a growing band of those who pay by standing order.

Another £10 win in so many weeks for Cecil Jones in Ballykeel 1 while out in Portglenone Margaret Downey had a £10 win with Jack Nelson.

If you want to join Sports Bond and possibly emulate Ian Morton and win £1000 ring 2564 1886 (Tuesdays) or 07831 803970.
Agents News
Sports Bond and Ballymena United were extremely saddened to learn of the passing at the weekend of Raymond Cochrane. Raymond was a lifelong fan of the club following it home and away over a lifetime with other members of the Cochrane family. Raymond was a renowned artist and was much sought after for his prints and portraits. He was a Sports Bond member since its inception and was a great supporter of many United promotions. After a life time living in Ballymena he and his wife had moved to Holywood to be close to his family. Brian Thompson commented "I was deeply saddened to learn of Raymond's passing, I valued his friendship and fellowship as a United supporter and he will be terribly missed". His legacy as a painter will be greatly appreciated by those who are lucky to have one of his paintings.
