It was well Worth en­ter­ing, wasn’t it?

The Football League Paper - - FINAL THIRD -

EX­ETER City fan Ja­son Worth is fly­ing off to New Zealand to visit his four-year-old daugh­ter – de­spite not win­ning a com­pe­ti­tion!

Worth, 31, nar­rowly missed out on win­ning £5,000 in the first Sky Bet Trans­fer Fund com­pe­ti­tion, but the big-hearted bet­ting firm stumped up the cash for the Auck­land trip af­ter learn­ing that was how he would have spent the money if he’d won.

“I’ve missed Caira so much since she left for New Zealand in July last year,” he said. “Now thanks to Sky Bet I’ll be see­ing her again very soon.”

Worth was one of 10 fi­nal­ists - from over 70,000 fans who en­tered - se­lected for the fi­nal draw at Wem­b­ley back in De­cem­ber.

It gave fans the chance to win £250,000 for their favourite club to spend on play­ers in the Jan­uary trans- fer win­dow. Not­ting­ham For­est fan Shaun Lan­der scooped the £5,000 prize money and For­est brought in As­ton Villa’s Gary Gard­ner and Chelsea’s Todd Kane on loan un­til the end of the sea­son.

The Sky Bet Trans­fer Fund has re­opened for the sec­ond half of the sea­son with an­other £250,000 to be won – and an­other £5,000 for a lucky fan. See­ trans­fer fund
