Eng­land bow nets Cook’s gran­dad £17k

The New Age (Northern Cape) - - SPORT -

LON­DON: Bournemouth mid­fielder Lewis Cook’s in­ter­na­tional de­but for Eng­land against Italy didn’t just fill his grand­fa­ther with pride, but also lined his pock­ets with a £17 000 (R280 000) bet­ting wind­fall. Trevor Burling­ham placed a £500 wager his grand­son would win a se­nior Eng­land cap be­fore his 26th birth­day at odds of 33/1 four years ago when he was at Leeds United as an 18 year old. – AFP
